Now, Let’s start programming!

#Step 1:-

The first thing you will have to do is download aFreeBox (Android DOSBox) and install it to your Android Device.
You can download aFreeBox from here or from this link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fishstix.dosboxfree

#Step 2:-

After it is installed, you can open it and explore the app. The font may be too small, but it is readable. Phones having a small screen might have problems understanding the text.

#Step 3:-

You will need a .exe file of Qbasic to run on your Android. You can find this executable file of Qbasic on your PC if you have Qbasic on your PC. Generally, the name of the executable file of Qbasic will be qb.exe. If it is there on your PC then it’s fine, send it to your Android device via USB Cabel or anything which you find easy and convenient. If you do not have it then download it via this link.
Copy executable file of qbasic to your SD Card. Make a folder named “QBASIC” and move the qb.exe file to the folder which you just created.

#Step 4:-

Open aFreeBox.

#Step 5:-

Type the command ‘CLS’ and press enter.
Now, start typing the following commands:
Type in mount d /sdcard/qbasic

With this command, /sdcard/qbasic will be mounted as the local directory.
Note that there is a space between d and /
– Type in d:
You will be taken to D: directory i.e. your SD Card. C: is your Phone Memory and D: is your SD Card.
– Type the name of the QBASIC application present inside the QBASIC folder. If you had downloaded the file via my link it’s name is qb.exe. If it’s qb.exe, then type in qb.exe hit press enter.

Now, your QBASIC window will open. It will be a little bit difficult for navigating and typing things. But slowly you will get habituated. Hope you liked this. See you in the next article.

    • You can just Unsubscribe from their mailing list! Whenever you get an E-mail, you can see a small “Unsubscribe” button either on the top or at bottom of the mail. If you can’t see that then simply contact the website’s admin through the website or by any means. If you find it hard then you can simply Block them from sending you any emails.

    • No! No it’s not at all hard for setting up your own blog. You first need to get a domain. If not first get one. Then you need to host your website. You can use any CMS such as WordPress and Blogger. You can host your blog free on Blogger but I prefer you use WordPress. You can use Bluehost for premium hosting and if you want for free you can use Infinity Free hosting. After you’ve got your hosting and got CMS hosted, you are good to go. Post some posts and pages and create a sitemap file for your site. Then just submit your site and your sitemap file to search engines like Google, Bing and Yandex. That’s it! Now you are good to go! Just work on your content and you will reach a great hight.
