- Microsoft QuickBasic Compiler for Macintosh 1.0
This article was previously published under Q34353
The following information was taken from the README file on the release disk for Microsoft QuickBasic Version 1.00 for the Apple Macintosh.
Compiled Application Run-Time Errors
Errors that occur at run time in a compiled application do not display a message. Only the error number is displayed. The error message may be discovered by typing "ERROR <#>" in the QuickBasic environment command window.
Strange Error Messages
If you get an interpreter error message that does not make sense, try compiling the program. If the error is reported by the compiler, run the program in the interpreter. The interpreter and the compiler read your program differently, so one may provide a better error message than the other. When the highlighted text and error message do not match, or when nothing is highlighted, turn on the "Create Error List File" option in the Options dialog box and compile the program. The '<filename> lst' file will show more precisely where the error occurred. It can show more than one error at a time.
