In PB/WIN v8.04 I would like to construct a string using ASCII codes, as in
CHR$(some_ascii_code), but this seems not to work for international
characters in the range 128-255. At least not in a MSGBOX string.I've
searched for a solution, but didn't find one, So this message is just to let
out some frustration over yet another limitation in Powerbasic's compilers.
On the other hand these characters prints correctly to the screen in PBCC,
at least those three I'm interesting in.
With the numerously number of international customers, which Bob Zale likes
to believe he has, I would expect him to offer these customers better
solutions to their programming needs.
Have a nice day, as Tim Robbins likes to throw around.
