- Microsoft QuickBasic Compiler for Macintosh 1.0
This article was previously published under Q35325
Tokens that have special meaning should normally be bold-faced in the List window in the Macintosh Basic or QuickBasic Interpreter. However, the interpreter fails to make the dollar sign character ($) bold-faced in the following reserved words:
EDIT$, FILES$, INPUT$, PICTURE$, and TIME$
This is a cosmetic problem that does not affect product performance.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the following products:
- Microsoft QuickBasic Version 1.00 for the Macintosh
- The Microsoft Basic Interpreter Versions 2.00, 2.10, and 3.00 for the Macintosh (buglist2.00, buglist2.10, buglist3.00)
We are researching this problem and will post new information as it becomes available.
The Basic interpreter correctly makes the dollar sign bold-faced for reserved words (such as RIGHT$, MID$, etc.) that do not also have a form without the dollar sign. If a given Basic reserved word has a form both with and without a $, the $ is not properly made bold. Please refer to an appendix in the manual for a list of reserved words.
