Load and Run

Loading an existing file into the LB editor is as simple as find-pick-and-click. Start with an empty editor -- use File > New if you have a file open.

To load a file, use File > Open... (or click on the open-folder icon) and navigate to the Liberty BASIC directory. Select BOXES.bas, and click Open in the file dialog to load the file into the editor.

Now use File > Save As to save the file into your own Dev directory. That keeps any changes you make from affecting the original file in the Liberty BASIC directory.

To run the program, click on the Run button, just as you did with your own "Hello, World!" program. After running the program, use File > New to clear the editor.
