Hi jj2007
I can only test on win 10, and it works OK if you don't use -Ox optimisations.
Thanks for testing.

You might find the forum thread at viewtopic.php?f=9&t=25527 useful. I tried to compile a list of every symbol use I could think of. I didn't provide doc links, but it at least gives you a clue of what to look for.

Downloaded the CHM file... Tried to do a search on &H and it ignored the & giving me results for H (and lower case h). Not much help there. Perhaps there are other chars that are troublesome beside the &.

It is interesting I can't find squat on & conversions in the regular doc, not just omitted in the TOC, except as examples in other functions.

As others are already aware this reference will be helpful for other kinds of searches.

Literals: https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/ProPgLiterals
Operators list: https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/CatPgOpIndex
& operator: https://www.freebasic.net/wiki/KeyPgOpConcatConvert

A .chm file is no Google, I'm afraid. The Table of Contents should serve as an index into broad topics (where you can then narrow down your search).

Now I do admit that the search function (both on the Wiki and on a chm) is indeed pretty useless, but the TOC is pretty well organized and should easily direct you towards the topic you're looking for...

@fmx: I believe that the Literals page should be at the TOC, not as a subpage of some topic. Learning how to express literals is basic stuff in any language.
