OPTION BASE


Specifies a default lower bound for array declarations

Syntax:
Option Base base_subscript

Parameters:
base_subscript
an numeric literal value

Description:
Option Base is a statement that sets the default lower bound for any following array declarations. This default remains in effect for the rest of the module in which Option Base is used, and can be overridden by declaring arrays with an explicit lower bound, or with another Option Base statement.

Note: initially, the default base is 0.

Examples:
'' Compile with the "-lang qb" or "-lang fblite" compiler switches

#lang "fblite"

Dim foo(10) As Integer      ' declares an array with indices 0-10

Option Base 5

Dim bar(15) As Integer      ' declares an array with indices 5-15
Dim baz(0 To 4) As Integer  ' declares an array with indices 0-4
