Q45514: 4.50 Manual Has Misleading Note for Calling FUNCTION Procedure
Article: Q45514 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | docerr SR# S890518-133 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 20-DEC-1989 The Note on Page 46 of the "Microsoft QuickBASIC: Programming in BASIC" manual for Version 4.50 is misleading. It reads as follows: NOTE: The program example above is written for use in the QB environment only. It cannot be compiled using the BC command from DOS. Technically, this note is correct because the program example leaves out the DECLARE statement for the FUNCTION procedure (GetInput$). The DECLARE is necessary for compilation. However, if the program is entered in the QuickBASIC environment, the DECLARE will automatically be added when the program is Saved. This misleading comment does not appear in the documentation for Microsoft BASIC PDS Version 7.00.
