Well, there is a list, just a list of them at QBasic Keyword List
They don't have the meanings, but most of them are self explanitory. If you still need more, I could look for more.

Why''d you pick QBasic? because it''s on every ms computer?
i did, way back in the day (when i was like 11) and made it play songs for me

fun fun fun

personally, though, i''d suggest pascal for a "my first time programming" language. it''s more condusive to the whole function-based paradigm, even though function based programming is out the door. i dunno, but i look at function based programming as walking, and oo as flying, know what i mean?

well, that''s what i did, [sarcasm]and look where it got me now! [/sarcasm]

good luck, man

NewB4ever, I just want to suggest something. You seem like the RPG type, so I wondered if you have ever tried RPGmaker? It is alot simpler then Qbasic for a person like you, and you can make your own RPGs!! I think there is quite an online community surrounding it too. You can get help, trade graphics, everything! I don''t think you should worry too much about coding, I mean you can make games!! Just search for Rpg maker 2000, read a tutorial, and away you go! Simple as that!

Newb4ever,

I think you should re-consider using C++. I can give you a few good reasons why:

(1) You can always start by learning to code a C++ console application, which means you don''t have to learn about Windows programming right away. C++ console applications are just as simple as QBASIC, the only thing that differs is the syntax, and you might as well learn a language that has some forseeable future. Once you have some basic programming skills and you feel comfortable enough to do so, you can then start learning to program your own Win32 Applications using exactly the same commands.

(2) Your C++ compiler will come with documentation detailing every single command that you can use. You won''t have to go searching on the net, or asking people for information.

(3) A lot of the game-related code samples you will come across on the net, and find in Software Development Kits like MS SDK, and OpenGL use C/C++, meaning that most of that code is written specifically for your compiler.

Oh, and not all of the people on this board are looking to vent their personal frustrations - ask your questions and the helpful people will try to assist you, ignore the others. Just keep in mind what one of the other posters said in reply to one of your posts - people aren''t just here to help you, we are all here to help each other.

Paulcoz.

The QBasic help files contain complete information on each keyword, examples and descriptions. Just click on the keyword in the keyword list, or put the cursor on the word in the editor and press F1.

QB is very fun to program in. I''ve used it a lot and still like it, although it''s not as powerful as c++. If you''re serious about programming you really should learn c++ as the other posters have said, because there aren''t many companies that would hire people with only QB-knowledge.

very funny, very funny
nice to see other out there, lovin that pc speaker.
eventually i ripped it out, cuz the beep it made when my comp booted up pissed my parents of when i was up late programming (and thus crashing and restarting)

no more music

okay, to be constructive in this post (and relate to the original thread topic), i''d just like to say again, newbie, that i suggest using a better programming language, cuz qbasic won''t really get you far on a pc in todays world, unless you wanna be a musician! 8)

oh well, just have fun programming, and that''s close to all that''s important

p.s. who are you mr anon. poster? lol
