So, I made some progress into the deep hell hole known as Visual Basic (6.0). Then, I accidentally created an infinite loop and ran the thing. VB is completely looked up, and IT DO NOT SAVE BEFORE EXECUTING! I''ve been spoilt with IDE''s that for obvious reasons save everything before anything can be compiled->executed, so I have not bothered to save for a (long) while. Is there any fucking way to break it, or are there any source recovery utilities, becouse it looks like I have to kill it.

Ctrl-Break ?
Aha! Never thought that that still worked nowadays. Thanks a million, and sorry for my folly; it''s late here.

there is an option to save all source files before running, in case that doesn''t work next time...
Found it, checked it, feel secure

You might consider using Visual Source Safe (VSS) wich is included in the Visual Studio package.

VSS keeps track of all you source files including the history. This helps a lot when experimenting with the source code! (eg: If you messed up your project, you can still go back to the point you where weeks ago ..)

Yeah, I''ll look into it. I''ve found VB''s undo feature a bit screwy, so that may be good to use.
