  • Converting QB45 to Console

    Hi,

    I have some old QB45 code that I would like to convert to Windows code and the console compiler looks to be most compatible with old DOS code. Can anyone tell me how hard it would be to convert my old QB45 code to the console compiler?

    If you want to send me one I will run it through pbcc and let you know the changes

      PBCC would be the most compatible, but depending on if you were working with graphics and 3rd party libraries, you may need to do a bit more in-depth conversion in those areas. You can view the help file and find the PB syntax here for PBCC http://www.powerbasic.com/support/help/pbcc/index.htm

        David,

        PBCC is the best way to go.
        Almost all the QB45 commands are in it plus many others that will blow your mind.
        But, you will find in the end that it will be far better to rewrite everything from scratch than try to save your old code.

            Thank you for the offer of looking at my code. I am going to just purchase the Console Compiler today. From looking at the online help file it appears to be the way to go. Not to mention all the help available here in these forums. I am sure I will be back asking for help soon.
