I too have been having problems with running long Fortran 6.6 computations in a QuickWin. As suggested in this forum, I tried using call sleepqq(1000) to no avail - the editor still unpredictably delays up to 5 seconds at a time, making it unusable. Like others, I find that this "multi-tasking" OS is effectively dead in the water while a CVF 6.6 program is executing. Is is really so much to ask to be able to use an editor while a program is executing? UNIX solved this problem almost 40 years ago! I am rapidly being driven towards another OS, after spending 20 years developing in C and Fortran in the DOS/Windows environment. If Microsoft doesn't wake up soon, their golden goose will be cooked! Their present abhorrent OS licensing scheme is the last straw!
