I downloaded win.zip version 0.942 some time back, and the link was probably like your first one, but with the old numbers.

I updated a few days ago to the current version (0.953).

You should also click on the "Documentation (WIKI)" link on the QB64 page and download the "Offline Reference" Wiki docs.

On that same download page there's a link to the QB64 forum and apparently further downloads...but I haven't checked that out yet.

Okay, thanks. Looks like they have beefed it up considerably.

I like the fact that QB64 has thriving, current forum support and frequent updates.

I had no idea it was still active and developing. The last I used was QB 7.1, that was made a long, long, time ago. I thought the language was dead.

It came out about 1991, I think. See you later and sleep well.

You mean phrontister? If I remember there were two parts of the problem. The first one I did okay. The second part I wanted a neat mathematical method for. I never found one...

No,he wanted to do something when he has more tine,but said he would probably forget by then. I just reminded him,so he can do what he wanted if he still does and if he has time.

He wanted to know how to do it in M. I remember offering to teach him how. We just never got around to it.

I am not sure how much time it would take to go

Excel -> LB -> QB -> M

I know, I am just talking about it. Learning M is a little scary.

M has pretty strict rules. Everything is with cap letters and square brackets.

Speakimg of which-my trial has ended.
