erf...

i made a small function to print out text 1byte at a time, now this seems to be a problem for DBpro, on my computer this makes it really laggy, it seems to skip 'sync', and it seems to chage to 640x480 mode...
it the mid$() that is doing it but what i want to know is why...


do
cout(text$, 10, 0)
cls
loop

rem cout("string", 10, 0) :prints out "string" with stopping for 10ms between every character and chages the line after "string"
rem cout("string", 10, 1) :prints out "string" with stopping for 10ms between every character and doesen't change the line after "string"

function cout(text_to_print$, wait#, bool#)
char# = 1
last# = len(text_to_print$)
print mid$(text_to_print$, 0)
sleep wait#
while char# <= last#
print mid$(text_to_print$, char#);
sleep wait#
char# = char# + 1
endwhile
if bool# = 0 then print " "
if bool# = 1 then print "";
endfunction

Sleep suspends the program to allow other programs run - on mine, I didn't get anything printed...

If you want to do a pause between each letter, its best to use a timer

Yes, I really am THAT good...

well in any case it makes the program look ackward...

oh, and seems to me i only ripped the code from my program there should be 'input ">", text$' before the loop...
and then remove the cls from the code, it makes the DBpro logo to spread around the screen. and all becouse of the print mid$()

test this and look at the logo in the lower right corner (also note that i am using DBpro demo):

do
print mid$("hello world", 2)
loop

well, in any case:
could some one check does that affect DBpro full version in any way. it makes atleast 'input' look strange, when typing text in it, it leaves marks of the cursor in the text when typing in to the input.

if someone is using demo, and doesen't see those things, then i think it is my computer, and i will not buy DBP, 'couse it would be a waste of my money. so please inform me about these things.
