I am using Qbasic to move files across the Internet, using FTP.
The Qbasic program creates a file (123files.txt) with all of the commands neccessary to move the files, Then I use:
shell " ftp -s:123files.txt >noscreen.tmp"
Is it possible to have some screen animation running at the same time this FTP " DOS shell" is running ?
What code is neccessary to Start some type of screen animation, and keep it running until this FTP file move is complete ?
