  • Only QB64 keywords can use a leading underscore! Leading underscores are reserved for QB64 procedure names only!
  • The underscore can be anywhere after the code on that line to continue the code to the next line in QB64.
  • Multiple underscores can be used for the same line of code in QB64 only.
  • Underscores can be used in the middle of variable, sub procedure or constant names.
  • The underscore is NOT compatible with Qbasic! The Qbasic IDE will remove or move code with leading underscores!
  • In PRINT USING an underscore can precede a formatting character to display that character as text in a template STRING.
