Try it. I'll even send  the code that is working in GWBASIC
to you if you think you can get it working in QBasic. The
286 has all the old interpreters/compilers on it. I used
QBasic to fix most of the typos in the code, but never
could get the code to work in QBasic. (QBasic was the
first interpreter I learned to program with -- I never did
learn the old line-numbered BASIC). Once I fixed everything
I could in QBasic, I fired up the program in GWBASIC and
it runs fine. I don't have MS-XP/Vista/NT. I have MS-DOS 6.2,
MS-Windows 3.1, MS-Windows95. I've been using GNU/Linux
as my primary OS since 1996. My computer "museum"
includes a 286,386,486, an old Pentium, a 586, and a 686.

I've seen your QBasic/Python tutorial!
