... Until it's gone.

And then, still, you don't know what you've got.

SmallBASIC HAD HTML, I didn't know what that meant when I first started coding with SmallBASIC.

Then, I saw this link to BP.org from SB's site, so I joined... my first forum ever. 

Talk about your Halloween hot dogs! Loaded with mustard and onion and bad breath! Yikes!

I tried to find out about HTML from all these helpful and friendly folks but instead I learn how to troll.

The best most masterly way to troll is to ask questions about BASIC, you know, like which is the best and idiot stuff like that. Like anyone has any idea of what they've got, .... until it's gone.

Again, I submit for your edification that you still don't know what you've got.

But please try and figure it out for yourself, because what other people say is not likely to do you any good.

And so, you become an elitist:

e·lit·ist
əˈlēdəst,āˈlēdəst/
adjective


  1. 1.
    relating to or supporting the view that a society or system should be led by an elite.
    "older men with an elitist attitude about music"


    What a ffff... unny joke. People can't agree on qualities of their dream state are going to agree on who will lead them there? Ha, this is a trick of a master troller who can start a battle between everyone! Satan would be proud of that Son -Of-a-Beelzebud!

So what ever happened to HTML in SmallBASIC?  I mean I just started to get an idea of how powerful a thing this might be (no thanks to BP.org folks)... and I realize it's gone from SmallBASIC along with Android's always available pop-up keyboard and the 3 bigger than tiny circles horizontal bars that allowed access to SB editor/IDE for even NOOK users.

I say we ban together and demand Chris bring it back to us. That's so ffff...unny a thought!
Hi Pete, 

What you are missing is Quick Basic.

SmallBASIC doesn't have RA and I would use giant strings if you need wordwrap but if it is editor for programs or the like I'd use array. I've had same debate with myself!
Late last night, I opened the I-D-E
And a big flashing square was all that I could see
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you’ve got till it’s gone
Paved paradise, put it in O-O-P

The big flashing square
The big flashing square
The big flashing square
The big flashing square 

Paved paradise, put it in O-O-P 
With a suckerfish tab and select from menu tree
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don't know what you’ve got till it's gone
Paved paradise, put it in O-O-P

The big flashing square
The big flashing square
The big flashing square
The big flashing square 

Took away DOS, put it in a DOS museum
And they charged the coders
Ninety-nine cents to reveal 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you’ve got till it’s gone
Paved paradise, put it in O-O-P 

=================================

I always wanted HTML QB Marriage. Maybe Chris can get a date for that by next June.

It's also a shame SB doesn't have RA files. Sequential files are way too slow and awkward to use in word processing. I haven't yet tried working with ascii characters and binary file operations. I wonder if that would be reasonably possible? 

Pete Huh
Hi Pete, check out TLOAD and TSAVE, you will fall in love all over again!

With them, you get your choice an array or a giant string. Some changes are good. Smile

Oh, that's where the words came from, Joni!
