No. I don't see any obvious way to do this (other than copying the complete CF contents to a win drive/native file system).

Re: Q68 Software SD Card

Derek, I would love to have access to an online version of the Q68 image file. As I have said, I can build my own image, but would rather have one build by someone who knows what their doing. :oops: Whopper Not doing it yourself will probably end you up in never really knowing your way around in SM...

Re: C++

With all due respect, (and I have a lot for Tony) - The linked elaborate in QL today, was more an old man's rant to me when I read it back in 2011 than everything else. It's just proof for the fact that if you start with a broken design, you'll end up with broken software. You could easily write the...

Re: C++

I've tried this on a simple program, but get the report: option '-extensions=yes' not recognised. Apparently, according to the C68_doc, C68 needs to be built with the EXTENSIONS configuration option set. How does one actually do this? - would be good to have C68 in a modern form. Michael That seems...

Re: C++

C++ would be a very good idea, just quite a bit of a weight to lift. Unfortunately, modern C would be just about the same task - C has been, for the last number of years, morphing from "High-level assembly" towards a language more and more abstracted from the hardware. Note you can make C6...

Re: Running processes and available memory ?

unzip uses the data default directory as a target directory - If you specify that one, you can omit the "-d" option. DATA_USE ram2_ : EW ram1_UNZIP; "flp1_zipfile" will do the same thing as EW ram1_unzip;"-d ram2_ flp1_zipfile" If you unzip to ram2_, the unpacked files ...

Re: Running processes and available memory ?

Hello. I'm a newbie with Sinclair QL (although I deal with several other 8 bits computers). Welcome - but don't call the QL an 8-bit computer. People might get upset ;) I recently got a Tetroid interface card with Minerva ROM, built-in Toolkit 2, floppy disc interface and 768k extra memory. Good ch...

Re: PSU alternative?

#one question: How did you measure the AC? RMS? If yes, the voltage that goes into the +-12V circuit after rectifying is ~1.4 times higher than what you measured. The +- 12V circuitry which is fed by the AC input is actually not so extensive that it would draw a lot of current. I would rate that at ...

Look a bit further for DISA if you want a pointer-driven program:

Re: C++

Simple answer: No.

Maybe the best bet would be to try and adapt the gcc 2.95 patches to a (more) modern gcc (a challenge in itself) and extend them to g++ (another significant challenge). 68k support in recent gcc/g++ has become worse and worse due to lack of interest and maintainers.
