Some questions about Microsoft Small Basic Answered
Hi there. I have been a user of the Microsoft Small basic programming language for a few weeks now, and i'm really bewildered by how amazingly easy and powerful it is. But I have a few questions about the more advanced features that the PDF tutorial didn't cover.
1) How do I use the File class? I know that it is used for saving progress and such, and would really like to add this to my programs, but the tutorial didn't say how to use it. (use example code, please).
2) What exactly is the Network class, and how do I use it? My best guess is that it creates some sort of telnet connection, (If so I can imagine a whole slew of Small Basic MUDs)
3) How do I use OnMouseClick events to make an image move to where the user clicks, Like in adventure games? This isn't probably something i'll be using for a while, but it's nice to know in case.
4) Are there any tutorials out there for the more advanced uses of Small Basic? The PDF Intro is very nice, but is pretty limited.
P.S: I'm thinking of doing an instructable on Small Basic, on learning the language and such. What do you think of this idea? And please don't flame me saying "Dud u Shud just lern C++" because I am not interested.
