active  Topic # 1461  Converting from SmallBasic to Izibasic

Hello,
I have been programming in "Basic" for years and just can't figure out how to convert my existing programs into Izibasic.
My programs mostly just write to the screen using "Print" and "input" statements.
I see no way to do this in Izibasic.
I have read the PDF documentation and looked through the sample files but none of them really just write to the screen etc.
Can someone point me in the right direction ?
Thanks.

Hello trent,

INPUT and PRINT are implemented in iziBasic, as well as the common "basic" statements of this language.

Maybe start by reading the "Console" paragraph, pages #33 and further of the User Manual.

As well, there are a few sample "console" applications in the iziBasic distrib that you could browse to get an idea of how iziBasic manages that.

Cheers,

Hello Aldweb,
I have gone through the documentation and it does not address the Input issue that I have.
Here is an example of my normal input statement that will not work in Izibasic.
Input "What is your choice ";n

I have tried ;n$ as well and it doesn't work either.
Thanks.

Hello Aldweb,
That worked great but now I am having problems with using that value of n in a print statement.
ie;
Input "What is your choice ",n
Print "Your choice was ";n

Well that is they way I use it in Basic etc but it won't compile in Izibasic.
I tried ,n and +n and many other cominations but none work.
I know that I can just say print n and it will work but I want the value of n printed right after my " Your choice was" print statement on the same line.

It seems that all of the Izibasic documentation for the syntax and commands etc in the manuals never give examples. That is why I am having problems converting my old Basic knowledge to the Izibasic code.
None of the example code has these old type basic commands either.
Sorry to keep bothering you.
I am going to go ahead and pay for the registered version because I do believe you have a good program here. I just need to learn the subtle differences in the syntax.
Thanks.

Hello Trent,

PRINT "Your choice was ";
PRINT n USING 0


iziBasic's documentation does not provide examples, this is true. But I believed this 100 pages documentation is quite exhaustive and iziBasic is shipped with a good package of sample applications which are offered to be read and understood, to help getting started to iziBasic's syntax specificities.

Furthermore, a few nice people a starting to design an iziBasic wiki here: http://wiki.aldweb.com/.

So, I hope that all these initiatives will help you get the best out of iziBasic

Cheers

Hello Aldweb,
That doesn't work.
Here is what I have:
INPUT "What is your choice ",n
PRINT "Your choice was ";
PRINT n USING 0
WAIT
END

Now when I try to enter text at the "What is your choice prompt" nothing I enter shows up on the screen. And when I hit enter It comes up with "Your choice was 0.

Thanks.

This code works fine, when n is a number.

If you want to work with a text variable, use n$ instead and replace the PRINT n USING 0 (which forces the print of a number in the integer format) by PRINT N$.

Then, this will be:
BEGIN
INPUT "What is your choice ",n$
PRINT "Your choice was ";
PRINT n$
WAIT
END


Cheers

Aldweb,
Thanyou so much for all of your help.
I am geting along pretty good now.
I am having a problem though with labels.
I get a syntax error if I try to give a label more that 2 letters ie:
Goto done
done:
end

I also am getting syntax error if I try to give more than 1 letter to a variable ie:
Input "enter choice",choice
print choice
or:
Input "enter choice",choice$
print choice$

Thanks in advance.
