QuickBASIC Version 1.00 for Macintosh cannot compile in the background under Apple MultiFinder. QuickBASIC can compile in the foreground under MultiFinder; however, compilation will be slower than in the Finder due to the time slicing between foreground and background processes.
Applications compiled in QuickBASIC can be run in the background of Apple MultiFinder. Those applications that do minimal screen refreshing will run the best in the background of MultiFinder. The processes running in the background will receive small amounts of time from the system. However, this small amount of time may not be enough to refresh the screen. The background process may jump into the foreground and try to process the screen refresh commands.
