  • Console initial display delay with FORMAT$

    Does FORMAT$ have to be buffered before anything appears?
    Try with a larger value for x& and it can take much longer.
    Code:
    FUNCTION PBMAIN () AS LONG
      ? "Why does this take 8-seconds to appear?"
      FOR x& = 1 TO 3000
        ? FORMAT$(x&,"#,");
      NEXT
    END FUNCTION
    How long is an idea?

    Turned off AVG anti-virus "Resident Shield" and it is now immediate.
    Now need to see why AVG doesn't like my program (or at least not using FORMAT$.)
    Thanks PowerBASIC support!
