The DEFINT statement defines all designated undefined variables AS INTEGER variables instead of the SINGLE type default.


Syntax: DEFINT firstletters


  • The variable first letters can be from A-Z or any other range.
  • You can also use commas for specific untyped variable first letters.
  • Variables DIMensioned as another variable type or that use type suffixes are not defined otherwise.
  • DEFINT allows users to create larger graphical arrays up to the integer limits.
  • The maximum value of a signed Integer variable is 32767. Minimum is -32768.
  • UNSIGNED Integer values from 0 to 65535. See _DEFINE
  • Qbasic's IDE may add DEF statements before any SUB or FUNCTION. QB64(like QB) will change all variable types in subsequent sub-procedures to that default variable type without giving a "Parameter Type Mismatch" warning or adding the proper DEF statement to subsequent procedures! If you do not want that to occur, either remove that DEF statement or add the proper DEF type statements to subsequent procedures.


Examples:

DEFINT A-Z
DEFINT A-D, Z
DEFINT A, I, O
