Everyone,

  Does anyone on the list know where I can download a copy of either

       a) Microsoft GW-Basic
       b) Microsoft QBASIC

  I find these languages easy to use to test out hardware. Very quick
development time, etc.

TIA,
Brad

Hi,
Try your old DOS disks, it is contained on them.
If you cannot find it email me and I'll send it to you.

Look on your Windows CD under Tools/Oldmsdos folder. Qbasic V1.0 is
there.

 IIRC, and this was a recent thread, these came with DOS, versions 3.3
and 6 respectively.

 Well, you may think that, but I vastly prefer F-PC which is at:
http://www.spiritone.com/~fwarren/fpc.html

 I have been using this for mucking about with the parallel port, and
testing procedures for delays required for chip programming.  BASIC does
some things, but the capabilities of an integrated MACRO editor, faster
interpreted execution, inline assembler and the ability to target
compile to concise .COM code in F-PC outshine it IMO.

Qbasic is on the Windows 95 CD.  It's in the directory \other\oldmsdos.  I
have several versions of Windows 95, and they all have it.

Hi,
try http://www.microsoft.com (supplementary disk or whatever).
However, you must answer a question beforehand: Where do you want to go
today? (JFF)
