You are an idiot. You don't deserve access to a QL. I am not going to tell you what you're doing wrong. It's not because I don't know, though.

What happens when you type "list"?


Nothing, I think the QL (emulator) has locked up, I just have that damned flashing cursor... I reset, start again, and the same. I've tried to just load the file, and then typing list gives me a black screen. I don't know whether this is the same issue that vanPeebles noted a while back, but...

Ummm, oookay...

What got published there has an extra word that changes the meaning entirely. It sounds mean and not at all what I intended. I'm sorry. :)

Hmmm, what if you just load it without running it and type list. In the first few lines, does it look for anything you don't have?

No offence taken... I've been rushing around so much the past few months I have unlearned everything I picked up when I first got my QL, so I am pretty much back to square 1... :geek:

Anyway, as I mentioned, even if I just load the library, with a view to listing the program I get no joy, just another screen of darkness, and that flashing cursor (which does nothing). I reset, restart, and... I felt like it was Groundhog Day, so have given up, had a wee nippy sweety and am off to bed. I'll try again tomorrow! :ugeek:

Hopefully you'll have done that by the weekend :twisted:

Seriously though, if you find something to your liking in the library, I'm sure Mr Navigator would be happy if you could write a short something about it/them.


Yes
