Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Hi again Andrew! I've debugged a little more to better suit compilation with Turbo - including the required pass-by-ref additions and hereby attached. Still some odd bugs that I have yet to identify, but most of the program now works under QPC2 after compilation. Some issues: a) After MORE is called...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Hi again Andrew I've tinkered with your source a bit more and managed to get it compiled and running (on QPC for now). There are a couple more places that REFERENCE <variable> will be needed - in addition to FileList$ - as well as an adjustment to the very first OUTLN. Also, Turbo compiled jobs have...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Hi Andrew I have yet to try running your file-manager, but have been successful in compiling with Turbo - at least as far as no compilation errors. One of the more confusing topics when moving from interpreted to Turbo'd SB is how Arrays are passed as parameters. Turbo can't handle passing Arrays 'b...

Re: QLAN-USB Adapter - working prototype...

Hi Polka I'm not so familiar with the capabilities of the RPi, but worth bearing in mind that re-implementing the QL Network stack, QDOS IOSS plus the FSERVE server routines sufficiently to share files would be far from trivial. That's one of the reasons why I opted to design the QLUB adapter and th...

Re: Status of QMON

I have now released the existing QJump QMON/JMON versions Thank you. Herr Kilgus! I'm still a fledgling with QMON - but that newer breakpoint option to auto enter the debugger and skip the two flag-words will come in very handy for some debugging underway of an updated NET driver for the ??? (shhh ...

Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

Thank you Marcel!

And I see that your blog spiked Guru Lau's interest :-)

We stand on the shoulders of giants...

Now, where's the next 'challenge' to be found, I wonder?

Re: QLAN-USB Adapter - working prototype...

Hello Stephan Thanks for asking... The project has been on hold for a while, after a few false starts at developing the code needed to 'bridge' the QL NET code to the micro-controller (which is itself working fairly well.) As it happens, I have been involved recently with another related project tha...

Re: Hardware detectives for FrankenQL?

Good luck!

For me, the tricky part has always been the physical/mechanical design - how to fit the parts in the QL case and make reliable connections.

All good fun!

Re: Hardware detectives for FrankenQL?

Yes and in fact any memory expansion - including Oliver's two examples - that rely on the ZX8301 will be of the slow type - aka 'contended', by design. On a side note - it is surprisingly simple with today's GALs and SRAM availability to add uncontended memory even internally - with a bit of additio...
