uQLx's support for 16 * 8 directory devices is a tad optimistic then :-D

For each directory device you can have up to 8 instances (e.g. win1_ to win8_) but the total number of instances is limited to 16.

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

I was also considering to write a SER driver independent from SMSQ/E, partially based on my experiences with a Qx0 PAR driver long ago. Probably I'd have looked at your own SER driver, which was for a specific UART, if I remember correctly. This was written for the 6850 UART. It was limited in that...

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

Is there a serial driver for Q68 Minerva at all? Not yet but I've done some research. Backporting the driver from SMSQ/E is not easy since it depends on the Thing framework. The best solution would be to replace the IPC code from Minerva with a new interrupt handler (possibly including the keyboard...

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

Something that has been nagging at the back of my mind, is that I may be crashing the supervisor stack, by over filling it with subroutine calls. I think there are only 64 bytes available on the supervisor stack. I am pretty sure I have done this before on this project. Like tofro said, the supervi...

Re: Q68 QoE Ethernet Driver

Here is version 0.22 of the Q68 Ethernet driver. The TCP server side has been implemented. So you can now use FSERVE on this version. If you use QPAC2's 'Channels', details of the open Ethernet channels are displayed (routines courtesy of Wolfgang Lenerz) I have not done a lot of testing, but I did...

Re: The PC-FOUR, Psion's IBM Versions

That's interesting to know. I have PC Quill but don't use it often enough because it doesn't run on 64 bit machines natively. Wish the source was available so it could be recompiled. The Virtual XP on my Windows 7 works but it's a bit clunky. I have archived versions of almost all my PC's in Virtua...

Re: Tandata Q-Connect modem

winmodems do not work the same way as a Hayes modrm, due tge modem commands are in the Windows Operating System. So extra confuguration is required. The OP meant wimodem, not winmodem. It appears to be a WiFi adapter with an RS-232 interface with Hayes command emulation (https://www.cbmstuff.com/pr...

Re: The PC-FOUR, Psion's IBM Versions

Thanks Jan, I always assumed the PC could show italics onscreen. We've got too familiar with hi-res graphical screens ;) PC Quill can't even display underline and high and low script as it does on the QL. It just displays different colours. The boxed help text in the upper display area is drawn usi...

On the printer perhaps, but not on the (character mapped) screen. It shows up in yellow rather than white.

Re: QLiberator bug

Andrew, That's actually not a QLiberator bug, but rather an S*Basic quirk (?): It seems that SBASIC behaves differently here than JS or Minerva. Try this 100 FOR i=1 to 10: REMark test 110 PRINT i 120 ENDFOR i When you execute this in SBASIC, you get numbers 1 to 10 printed. However in JS and Miner...
