I am just starting out learning more about Quickbasic. I have some background in the language as well as C/C++ and COBOL; so, I am a little familiar with the basics. My question is, Is it possible to run DOS commands within Quickbasic? I know there is the FILES command that is pretty much the same as DIR in DOS. I need to run DIR with switches as well as NDIR for my Novell environment. I want to write the results of the DIR/NDIR to file and extract data from it (i.e. folder names and sizes). Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks.
