QB 4.50 Help "RND(n) Function Details" Correction for n = 0

The QuickBasic Version 4.50 QB Advisor online Help screen under "RND Function Details" shows the following incorrect statement under Argument:

0 or n omitted Returns the next random number in the sequence.

The line should be changed to read as follows:

n > 0 or Returns the next random number in the sequence. n omitted

This information is correct in the printed manuals for Version 4.50 and earlier versions.

Version 4.50 is the first version of QuickBasic that offers the QB Advisor, a hypertext-based, online Help system with instant cross referencing.

This documentation error also occurs in the Microsoft Advisor online Help system in QBX.EXE, which comes with Microsoft Basic PDS Version 7.00.
