Re: Call SuperBASIC from M/C

I don't believe that you can under QDOS other than stuffing a string into the SuperBASIC command line (see EDLINE$ from DIY Toolkit).

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

Re: Qustomizer

Ah - I wondered if you might use REMark statements in the loader itself to identify sections which could be loaded / omitted

Re: Qustomizer

A really nice little program - bearing in mind the complexity of the boot file for Black Phoenix and QL/e this is very useful.

It would be nice to see some documentation so that people could apply it to other programs / complicated boot sequences.

Re: Copying Program Listings from PDF Documents

I use Total Edit Pro (freeware) from http://www.codertools.com/

This allows you to format the text to change line endings, or set them when you save the file (using Save As)

Re: Hello from Nottinghamshire!

Yes the QL and ZX Spectrum (ZX Interface 1) use the same network lead - I have several for £2 each - you actually need 2 cables from memory to complete the circuit :)
