Re: Expansion serial card?

Dilwyn is traveling for the next week or so. He won't be making any updates during that time. What??? A welsh man looking outside his wonderful country? Seems curious to me, but ok, I'll see it from the other side :D . Still alive after meeting XorA .... No Scots tried to kill me yet, apart from th...

Re: VAL function in SuperBasic

EVAL (6K) http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/tk/eval.zip - Two machine code functions allowing you to calculate numeric expressions from BASIC - many of the standard QL functions and up to three numeric variables may be used in the expressions. Assembler source included. I tried this software is that it is pr...

Re: QL upgrade versus Q68

Digital video does however have one other appeal, especially given how small Q68 is - these days it's no big deal finding raw LCD panels at reasonable prices, with (mostly) wide screen resolutions like 1024x640, which are actually closer to the original QL spec. These panels use a direct digital in...

Re: RE: Dominos game ON QDT

Line 4840 tries to LBYTES a file called "ecran" (French for screen) from a device named in the variable dev$, set in line 100 to "flp1_", to the screen at address (decimal) 131072. Probably doomed to fail on anything other than a machine in QL compatible memory layout. The progra...

Re: New QubATA driver for QUBIDE

If you have the more recent versions of Qubide (Spanish or Polish - especially the ones with memory expansion) they MAY not work anyway, as they are only able to use version 1 rom as far as I know. Yes, we believe so - although I have arranged for one of the Polish QubIDEs (with 512K RAM) to be sen...

Re: New QubATA driver for QUBIDE

Hi fellow QL'ers I have a "little" problem installing the new QubATA system, so I would really like to hear from users, who have installed QubATA. Regards Klaus There are three real questions: a) Are you trying to install it on an original QubIDE or one of the modern clones with added mem...

Re: uQLx and TCP/IP stack documentation

It's been pointed out that strictly speaking the emulators DON'T have a TCP/IP stack built in as my documents imply, but rather they just use the facilities provided by the host operating system. I'll make corrections to the page and articles as I get time, but please bear this distinction in mind w...

uQLx and TCP/IP stack documentation

I've created a new page in the Documents part of my website, dedicated to information about the TCP/IP stack included with emulators such as QPC2, uQLx, SMSQmulator and QemuLator. Personally, I found it hard to come across the information and examples of how to use the facilities from QL BASIC, so a...
