Q32265: CHAIN Statement in Compiled BASIC Not Supported by CodeView
Article: Q32265 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.20 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | B_QuickBas B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 16-NOV-1988 In Microsoft CodeView, when debugging compiled BASIC programs that CHAIN, you can view only the first program executed (the one given in the CV command line). The modules that are CHAINed-to cannot be viewed or stepped through, and their variables cannot be looked at, even if these modules are successfully executed. In fact, you cannot gain any information about the CHAINed modules, other than whether or not they execute correctly, unless you execute them separately in CodeView. This information applies to QuickBASIC Versions 4.00 and 4.00b, and the Microsoft BASIC Compiler Version 6.00 for MS-DOS and OS/2.
