Re: Q68 page

Thanks, I saw even more typos, when re-reading after Dilywin uploaded it. I, errr, confess to not having had time to even read it myself yet :oops: A quick glance shows it to be to the high standard I expect from Peter :) I fully intend to buy a Q68 later, but having no time at the moment I thought...

Q68 page

I've started a page for the Q68 on my site. At the moment (thanks to Peter Graf) it has the Q68 mainboard user's manual and a small utility for setting the realtime clock on a Q68. Further Q68 stuff will be added as and when becomes available. http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/q68/index.html or the mirror at ...

Re: Interrupts and their handlers on the various QLs

There's an article and finished extension called KeyBeep on the Utilities page on my website http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/utils/index.html which includes assembler source showing how to write a routine to use the scheduler loop for (in this case) a relatively trivial application to switch off and on beep...

Re: Q68 Powered Arcade Game

How much better? I have no idea. As far as I remember, there was no SLUG command available which is why I ended up writing it. Dilwyn might have suggested it - but I can't remember. He certainly sold it through DJC though. Cheers, Norm. (not sure if this will make it due to intermittent and very sl...

Re: q-liberator

I've OCRed Chapter 15 from my copy of the manual and placed it as PDF and Word DOC file at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/qlib/index.html Would be delighted if it could be added to the manual already on that page. Note that it was done in a hurry and I've only hurriedly gone through the OCRed file so there...

Re: q-liberator

I was just made aware of a number of features in Q-Lberator that I havent seen documented anywhere: EXT_PROC, EXT_FN, GLOBAL, and possibly others. I believe I have a general idea of what theyre about, but should like to see some documentation. Ive been told there is a chapter 14 in some manuals? Th...

Re: TURBO'd app that hangs the QL on termination...

I'm following this thread with interest - I'll be fascinated when this is tracked down. I don't have any further ideas to suggest other than what people like Per have already suggested. Always amazed at how ready people on here are to try to help others, I'm sure that's what this forum is all about....

Re: Hello form Deepest Northamptonshire

Good morning Whopper - welcome back to the QL. We're a pretty friendly bunch on here, don't be afraid to ask questions, we like to help each other out. I've been a QL user in one shape or form since getting my first QL in 1984 (and ZX81 and Spectrum before that). Nowadays I tend to use emulators, bu...

Re: A guide to programming the Sinclair QL

I was recently approached by someone on Facebook who is writing a game in C and using cross compilers to convert it to various platforms. He asked about the QL and I pointed him to the cross assemblers available on the Sinclair QL Homepage - http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/c/index.html - most notably QDOS-...
