Because it is not: QBX is the IDE for the suite. The compiler is called BC7, which comes after BC6 which comes after BASCOM v.5.

MS abandoned the BASCOM product line and focused more in the new QB product line (Quick stands for the IDE, no more hassle (:lol: he he) with the command line). QB4.5 was downgraded to Qbasic 1.0 (slowed down and without the compiler), and MS continued on the BASCOM product line in 1990 releasing BC 6.

Just a matter of nomenclature Cheesy In fact, QB, PDS and VBDOS use the same BASIC dialect, just like VB.

Ok, it may be a different line of product but the dialect is the same. Thats what I am trying to tell ya, it doesnt matter to me which line of product it is so long as I can make QB programs using it =P.

Nathan, I totally agree with you, and thanks for the documented history.

BigBasicQ, your statement of 80% coder and 20% language is true. You can say that about almost any language. However, we were discussing whether PDS belongs to the QB family. If your solutions using PDS work for you, that's great. You can't argue with success.

Y'know, I had to do some research to build my web. That has a drawback: I've became over-reactive about MS Basic version misconceptions Wink
