 QBasic Screen 12 Text

  I am working on a game that uses screen mode 12 (640x480x16).  To my
surprise, printing a screen full of text in this screen mode is much
slower than filling the screen with graphics.  This has become quite
annoying.  The problem is not present in text mode, but the wait for text
to print on the screen in graphics modes is LOOOOONG.
  I am wondering if anyone knows a shortcut that will print text on the
screen faster than the PRINT command in screen mode 12.

  Please respond by e-mail if possible.
                                Thanks in advance,
                                Jesse Dorland

P.S.  I'm still looking for Sound Card detection and CPU detection, so
any help on those subjects is welcome also.
