Ron, I answered your question in another thread a couple of hours ago. In case you missed it, here's the answer again. Go to this page:

http://basic.wikispaces.com/Are+There+Any+Tutorials

Scroll down a way. There's a list of the tutorials and they are links to the actual tutorials.

If your web browser supports favorites or bookmarks, go to this page and choose to save it as a favorite or bookmark:

http://basic.wikispaces.com/Are+There+Any+Tutorials

The next time you need to find the tutorials, you can access this page and find the list quickly.

Thank you. The tutorials sounds wonderful. I'm a newbie to programming even though I did have one course of BASIC back in the early 80s - barely passing - out of the sympathy of the teacher. LOL So the concept will not be brand new to me.

I came to this forum to get information on how to install a program written in Liberty Basic on my website, since it was made to run on a PC. It has a database, but after reading about the tutorials, maybe I can learn Liberty Basic.

Brad mentions a zip. file at the end of beginners part 1 showing the answer to a challenge that he sets. Is is still possible to obtain that file? I can't seem to find it anywhere!

I was wondering after stumbling around, that there seems to not be much on setting ones self up to just plot numbers as a line graph scaled or not for that matter. I mean like just plugging in data and then being able to simply just plot out your numbers and such. I have glanced at a few examples slash here and slash and switch here and then it does it. Yet it is not well understood by me so I can work past. I can't find much on scales for X and Y lines or how to do simple forms. It was something I hoped just would be a natural act in LB. But it seems clouded in some hidden chamber or held away if you know what I mean, I am kind of slow at picking up some of those sparce and almost left to figure it out we are into gaming. I thought it would be more natural to explain some of those things, for some of us older guys just hobbying, yet a bit more interested in Data graphs. I know I will figure it out, but it is one thing baffling me a bit now. Think your all great and am having fun just feel a little weak for now in that area and am coming up kind of short on examples and or different aspects for forming functions that assist graphing as such...mentioned. Thanks!

Below are some previous discussions on graphing types of applications that might be of interest.

Thanks so Much Zoomkat, even figured out how to search on Forum. I still have much to study so it seems, it sure is not like the Basic I had in college 1983...wow, huh! Still it seems pretty miffy right now to me, but thanks I will keep working and studying and thanks!

I am new to Basic programming as well. I am struggling with where to start. I have been trying to simultaneously read Beginning Programming with Liberty Basic and study up on articles pertaining to programming logic at the same time. I find I am having more problem following the correct logic flow than with the programming language itself. I've also recently started reading Brad Moore's series and cannot seem to find the accompanying .zip file "Beginners1.zip". Is there also an archive of Carl Gundels examples that he gives in the book. For example the String Commander program. I would find it helpful to see the programming examples if I get stuck.

Does the debugging window not come up when you click the ladybug icon? Do you get a message at the bottom of the editor window something like: BASIC Compile Halted: and some message?

If I didn't first try it and get it wrong, I may never have figured out how to get it right.

I am currently reading "Beginning Programming with Liberty Basic" by Carl Gundel. I am understanding everything about the code itself but where I am having problems is how to properly structure a program. I am currently working on the String Commander exercise. The directions say at first to build it using GOSUB and RETURN. The problem is that my code is still looking like spaghetti. I think that using something like a Warnier-Orr diagram would greatly help me and even got a few books on this. Seems simple enough but where these books don't help is when to use a While...Wend or For...Next or just an If statement. It does somewhat go into IF statements but not While...Wend or For...Next. I feel a book explaining something like this would be very beneficial for me if I could just find the right book or online tutorial. I'm pretty sure I could build the program, how to make it still not look like spaghetti is the trick for me.

Practice makes perfect.......

You should create a new thread pertaining to a specific question that you are having problems with. Everyone's coding style is unique, but browsing this thread/ forum will provide you with great material. Also don't forget about the tutorial that ships with LB.

thanks for the suggestion. i know practice makes perfect. Yeah, I should have started a new thread but was having difficulty figuring out how to do that. I know everyone has their own coding style but the books I have been reading suggest that there is a correct structure of programming one should use and try to eliminate GOTO's and so forth. They want you to not code like spaghetti but don't really teach you how not to or they do but it just hasn't clicked for me yet.

I know a new thread, lol
