  • STRINSERT$

    I have a question about the usage of the "STRINSERT$" command.

    If I type in "STRINSERT", it is highlighted in blue and capitalized like
    the other keywords. When I try to compile my code, I get error
    519 (didn't declare STRINSERT).

    If I add the "$" to the end, it compiles, but now it changes from
    Blue to black text.

    Every example I've seen is like this: "STRINSERT$". Why does the
    text changing from blue to black? It still appears to work, but I'm
    curious. Thanks.

    It's a small bug in the IDE keyword highlighting.

      While small, these kinds of things can often cause a lot of confusion,
      especially if you are new to PB programming. Why not simply fix these
      small things and release a minor update of the editor?

      Should be a simple and fast job, and save you from having to answer this
      same question over and over again - year, after year, after year..

            Please release the Update.

            We want a retrial, we'll get the best lawyers, he didn't do it.

            Could you at least release it on bail

              Our friend Linux was due to be released in 1998
              but he's still in solitary confinement.

                Bob, your facts are wrong... the release date for the Linux compiler has never been officially announced. It has been in development for quite some time, and is currently still in development.

                  I should have said...EXPECTED to be released.

                  Sorry if I was mistaken Lance but Michael Mattias in alt.lang.powerbasic (Apr 15/01)
                  displayed a very convincing copy of an email from PB sales dated Feb 23, 1998
                  that stated....

                  "The product is not nearing beta testing yet and no date for release has
                  been set. We do expect to ship it in calendar 1998, however."

                  HTH,

                    That would be a great example of why PowerBASIC {no longer} preannounces release dates for products, as it can cause all kinds of problems if the date passes.
