compiling trouble

I'm an intermediate qbasic programmer, and I have a few programs worked to a point where I'd like to show them to some others for input. However, I've only had success compiling much simpler programs. I'm getting errors that I don't understand, and I'm hoping someone will try to compile them and tell me if they can see a problem.  

The error I get is 'data memory overflow.' I've tried some others' advice, but nothing has worked.  I'm using qb.lib and qb.bi, and since there is a CALL ABSOLUTE overlap between them, I commented the CALL ABSOLUTE line out of qb.bi. I know this makes it difficult for others to run these programs, but it won't matter if they're compiled, right?

anyway, the programs and my modified qb.bi can be downloaded at http://www.geocities.com/proteusware/download.html

thanks in advance for any help

RE: compiling trouble

You might try looking at my tips page. There are a couple
of ways of making large programs and some things to avoid
like, long line lengths.


RE: compiling trouble

make variables long instead of integers.  try that.


deflng a-z

at the top of your code.  slower, but it might work.
