QBASIC (lame dos interpreter)

hello out there,

On my old computer, I had a copy of QBASIC, but with my new one it doesn't seem to be on there.  What is the deal?  Did Microblast decide not to include QBASIC with Windows 98 or what?  My old computer was DOS 5.0, so I am not sure if this has not been included on other versions either.

Where can I get it?  Or can't I get it?  Final question: What's the deal?!

As it turns out, Microblast (as you call them, haha, good one :-)  ) doesn't include it with their OS's any more.  I'll see if I can find a copy on the internet, but if I can't I can always email it to you (it's very small).

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.  Thanks!

While performing a search, I have found:
ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/OLDDOS.EXE

Create a directory and run this program from in it.  Then delete everything you don't want.  The only things you need are qbasic.exe and qbasic.hlp.

The file is 865kb so make sure you have a minute or so.

hey, I have Qbx 7.1 ( Quickbasic 7.1 PDS - Profesional Development system )

it's a Lot better than that qbasic,
In fact, qbasic is version 1.1, I think.

In qbasic, you can't even use assembler-made libraries, neither call Dos and Bios
interrupts. etc...

do you want it ?

Nah that's okay, it isn't necessary to send me that.  The lame dos one is fine with me! :)
