Re: 8302

Hi everyone I have been exploring the link between the 8302 ('PC') and the 8049 ('IPC') recently myself and thought to share the following analysis - which effectively supports what Daniele uncovered earlier. My own interest was driven by an idea to enhance the basic IPC capability by leveraging an ...

Re: Compiled PRINT_USING

I see, Tesla - looks fun!

Feel free to share a code-example that prints the entire line including the use of PRINT_USING - I'm wondering if the use of print separators (TO , ; etc) is handled differently under Turbo.

Re: Compiled PRINT_USING

Hi again Tesla

Do you have a more fleshed-out code example showing how you are producing the column format?

Buonasera.

Re: Compiled PRINT_USING

Hi Tesla I just tried your example on QPC and it works identically in both SBasic and a Turbo'd job - giving the expected "12.000.000" output Are you testing this on a real QL or other platform? If so, I can play around tomorrow and test again on my BBQL. I've come across some oddities in ...

Re: QL wont work

Hi Traindriver [EDIT: You'll find the QL PSU schematic with voltages annotated here: http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/hardware/QLperip.zip] You'll find quite a lot of relevant info already discussed here on the forum across many good articles, but here's some thoughts gathered together... Before going t...

Re: QL wont work

Hi - quite possibly - but replacing it with a working 78x05 won't cause any further damage and will give you a clue as to what might need replacing thereafter :-)

Re: QL wont work

Hi Traindriver So, sounds like the 5V regulation is fried. If that 5V is being generated by the standard linear 78x05 regulator (screwed to the black fin-heatsink), then they are easy and cheap enough to replace. If you have instead one of the various switched DC-DC converters mini-boards fitted in ...

Re: QLSD driver testers sought

Hi Tetroid I too was stumped by this behaviour a while ago, until it was explained in another thread :-) For this reason, I often include a WIN_USE 'win' in the BOOT file that is run from any medium other than WIN (FLP or else a virtual ROM 'BOOT' device that I use some on of my QL units.) In fact, ...

Marcel's new QL-SD interface...

Just wanted to say how impressed I am with Marcel's revised/re-released QL-SD interfaces! Just received them today (double-card and a micro-SD variant), carefully and conservatively packaged - only a couple of days after shipment and the build quality looks excellent. I'll post again after actually ...
