Re: Q68 Ethernet

Back in 2006 Jonathon Dent was working on a TCP/IP internet connection package. I had a version, as did others to test called soQL3_1.zip. At that time the only way to connect a hardware QL to the internet was through the serial port. Does anyone know what happened to that?

Re: SuperBASIC omission (bug?) in SMSQ/E?

Alternatively there is the ClipScrapBoard package, CSB218.zip on Dilwyn's utilities download page. This contains PasteIt_obj that does the same with ED or other programs with a cursor. Same caveat - to paste in to ED an initial line number mus be given in ED. Just press enter after starting ED. Past...

Re: Status of QMON

Hi Oliver Great, if you can share the PERFECTION file then I'll use that as a baseline for the current version - saves me quite some typing and is probably already the manual Marcel is looking for. Anyway, I'd still make a Word version. Attached is a .zip with the QMON manual from DP's QL collection...

Re: Status of QMON

Hello, I have the QMON manual that came with DP's collection as a PERFECTION document. I can convert this to word or PDF. I just don't have the time at the moment but can do so this evening.

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Hi Rich, That error is peculiar - is QPC2 or q-emulator open and trying to access the disk when you do the DOS format command? Not sure what other process would have control of the disk, unless you have something like a disk imager / or possibly your antivirus software is getting in the way and tryi...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Hi Rich, See attached image. DD disk Format.png Used your suggested DD format, as amended by Dilwyn but Windows 7 still does not like the disk. This might be down to the actual USB drive. I have a FreeCom USB drive bought from Scan a few years ago. But here are my question(s) are you suggesting that...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Windows 7 does not support access to QDOS DD 720k disks via a USB floppy disk drive to QPC2, so it is unlikely that Windows 10 will, HD 1.44MB QDOS floppy disks via a USB floppy disk drive are supported in Windows 7. Not having Windows 10 I cannot test that.

Re: QPTR examples

Hi Here are the files from the original QPTR disk which includes the assembler and SuperBasic examples. I am assuming that they are all now freeware as the QPTR toolkit is itself freeware. There was an excellent series of articles on programming in with QPTR in QLToday from the July/August issue 200...
