In the mid-'90s I wrote in Quick Basic some lab simulations for science classes I was teaching. I want to rewrite them in VB and thought that I could just paste old QB code into VB... not so, of course.
I want to know how to read data from within the program into an array. Below is a sample of the old QBasic code I'm trying to duplicate.
DATA 32 'DATA is Name, kingdom, p for photosynthesis, s for single celled DATA Smeglitious nobilis,monera,,s DATA Computicus garianus,monera,,s DATA Fastidyus hassica,monera,p,s DATA Diminutia scotia,protista,p,s DATA Strongellica sphinctius,protista,,s DIM org$(5, 4) ReadOrganismData: READ d FOR organisms = 1 TO d FOR organisminfo = 1 TO 4 READ org$(organisms, organisminfo) NEXT organisminfo NEXT organisms orgName = 1 Kingdom = 2 photo = 3 singleCelled = 4
