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...

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.

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-...

Re: test_task won't copy to DOS4_ on QPC2

Thank you for the detailed explanation, Marcel. It addresses one of my concerns, that we may end up with a number of different solutions across different emulators and so on. While I understand what you say about the QemuLator method, at least QemuLator is pragmatic in that if you copy an executable...

Re: Text87plus4 and QPC2

Hi Norman, The Plus4 Patch program is still advertised on Bruce Nicholls's website http://www.ql-qvd.com/products.html - scroll down to utilities section. Means it's probably still available and you might also be able to get it from Jochen or Marcel if you ask them very nicely (a fistful of Euros us...

Re: test_task won't copy to DOS4_ on QPC2

Another method which can be useful purely for file transfer is to use the JOB2BAS program on my website. Converts executables into BASIC programs which survive passing through non-QDOSMS environments and rebuild themselves when run at the destination end. http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/arch/index.html 100 ...
