If you press COMMAND+PERIOD to break (stop) the program during the execution of an LPRINT statement, the system can hang or give a System Error.
The best workaround is to avoid pressing COMMAND+PERIOD during the execution of an LPRINT. Alternatively, you may OPEN the device name "LPT1:" or "LPT1:PROMPT" as #n and output using PRINT#n, which allows you to abort printing with COMMAND+PERIOD.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in QuickBasic version 1.00 for the Macintosh . This problem is corrected in QuickBasic version 1.00b for Macintosh .
