Re: (Nearly) solved: FuNction which tests if a variable is set

A note in the Keyword Reference Page says there is a fix (TurboFix_bin), which allows using BASIC_INDEX%() even with MultiBASICs. Where can I obtain Turbofix_bin? Without BASIC_INDEX%() always references the name table of the initial S(uper)BASIC interpreter (Job-ID 0). TurboFix_bin was released by...

Re: Using ZX Microdrives on the QL

Interesting. I wonder if anyone has a copy of the ICL OPD schematic? I don't think I have any of the schematics - I have a folder given out to the ICL / BT engineers for troubleshooting, so will have a look through that. I have permission for the whole folder to be scanned in and pu ton the net (so...

Re: News from the RWAP Stable

I have never been able to understand how the 1440dpi (or later 2880dpi) mode works on Epson printers and cannot find any information anywhere (hence why it was never supported in the ProWesS ESC/P2 drivers).

Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

You cannot use a dynamic IP address for hosting (as DNS entries can take up to 24 hours to update around the world, the chances are that they would never be pointing to the correct IP address). Incorrect, a short TTL makes it possible, thats how the dynamic DNS providers do it. Never heard of that ...
