Hi everybody Could somebody clue me into a solution for my little project.I am not a pro programmer. About 10 or so years ago I wrote a gwbasic and Q basic program which was a completely functional programmable menu driven system.It was like a books table of contents where every item is entered into the program with dos commands and then when selected it would take you right there. Similar to the old IBM fixed disk organizer (FDO)It worked great on the old 286's and 386's running dos. Then I walked away from computers and forgot everything. No worry about competition here! lolI know that i'm a dying breed in that I'm still playing around in dos and writing dos programs while everyone else uses visual this and visual that.Anyway I would like to know if on the newer computers if the keyboard buffer Is still at &H417 because I'm having difficulty with my pgup and pgdn and directional keys functioning on these new computers.I downgraded my os to windows me and the computers that I'm using now are fairly new.When I wrote code to peek into &H417 seg 0 all I get is 0's and pressing keyboard keys shows no change. This location did work 10 years ago! What happened? lolWells thanks for reading my little sob story and maybe someday when I can find a good C++ tutorial I will make the switch.well I figured out part of my problem..I told you I forgot everything.I used the location seg 0 &H417 to control the keyboard locks. I still need to figure out the pgup and pgdn and directional control issue.
