I finally got around to actually using FB^3. I have a project that requires modification of an old FB-II program. Somewhat to me surprise and delight, I got the thing to work rather quickly. (Perhaps a blessing of not being able to write code that is very sophisticated.) However, there were two things in my print routine (which is not used much anyway) I had to drop to get the program to compile. One was an ERRMSG$. The conversion manual says it is gone, but give no suggestions of what should replace it. Or maybe I do not need to replace it--just drop it? The other statement was a COORDINATE h,v statement. I did not see anything about this in the conversion manual, but it seems to be gone. What replaces it? I am way behind in reading digests from this list, so if these have been discussed, just point me in the right direction. (I am also a bit rusty in FutureBASIC--I have not done much for a couple of years.) \ TIA R Schenk PS When I just have the FB^3 running, there is a little window with a new button and an open button. Pressing the new button does not seem to do anything. Why not? PPS. I really like way the error messages are given. That is very helpful.
