    Chipmunk Basic

    I have Chipmunk Basic installed on both my Mac and my PC. I am unable to load or save any program on either system. Any attempt to do so give me the message "err: no such member". What am I doing wrong?

    I had to do a double-take to make sure this wasn't a bump from 1998...

    Are you typing quotes around the filename? Remember it has to be a string expression.

    Code:
    save "test.bas"
    Also since it's based on an older Pascal implementation, do you have any gosub or goto pointing at labels that don't exist? I can't remember if Chipmunk had this problem, but I know that zBasic when it went from being line-numbered to labelled wouldn't let you save any program that referred to non-existent labels. I don't think this is an issue with Chipmunk since it saves as plaintext and not tokenized like classic line numbered BASICs, but you never know.

    Thanks, deathshadow. That was the problem.
