My dad learnt programming in the 80s and he is still stuck with GW-BASIC (and making a living out of it). He was asked to create a CSV file, but he only knows how to create files of fixed-width records.
I found on the web that the syntax for opening plain-text files is:
OPEN file$ FOR OUTPUT as #1
but he claims it doesn't work. The interpreter he uses is the version 2.01. According to Wikipedia, the most "modern" version is 3.23 (1988).
Does anyone know how to create a plain-text file in such an outdated version of GW-BASIC?
