The _OS$ function returns the operating system and QB64 compiler bit version used to compile a QB64 program.
- compilerVersion$ = _OS$
- Returns a STRING listing the OS as [WINDOWS], [LINUX] or [MACOSX] and the compiler bit format of [32BIT] or [64BIT]. Example: [WINDOWS][32BIT]
- Allows a BAS program to be compiled with QB64 in Windows, Linux or MacOSX using different OS or language specifications.
- Use the return compilerVersion$ to specify the current OS code to use when a BAS program is compiled using another version of the QB64 compiler.
- Windows can use either a 32 (default) or 64 bit compiler. Linux and Mac use 64 bit by default.
