SBASIC allows the use of hex and binary literals in programs. This makes for clearer code in many cases, for example where system offsets are referenced, or to set 24bit RGB colour values, etc. A pity, then, that Q-Liberator will not accept programs coded in this way. They can also not be loaded back into a SuperBASIC interpreter.
Here is the cure: LOAD your program into SBASIC, MERGE DeHex_bas into it, and type DeHex. The program will terminate with a "PROC/FN cleared" message. (This is normal.) Then QSAVE or SAVE your program (in the latter case perhaps with a new name!). Youll find that all the hex and binary literals have magically been translated into decimal numbers, and DeHex itself has disappeared. The saved program is now ok to compile or be moved to SuperBASIC.
Make sure you dont RENUMber this program, or your own program after merging DeHex. Also ensure that your program doesnt have line numbers above 32738 before you merge.
