Re: Floppy Drive inside Microdrive Slot

I wanted to buy a vdrive for Christmas :) but I could not find any - they are no longer listed on sellmyretro. They are sold in small batches - if you register on sellmyretro and go to the listing (https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/29035) you can click on "Notify when back in stock&quo...

Re: Perfection Status

So far as the QL is concerned, you are correct in that there is no realistic potential gain or loss to the copyright holder. However, the reason that the IP for some of these pieces of software are extremely difficult to resolve, is that things such as the Metacomco packages uses licences from Borla...

Re: Perfection Status

Hi, I think the point I am trying to make, is someone that has not legally purchased a copy of Perfection, can download and run the word processor. Strictly, the answer has to be no - this is another program where the copyright is (mainly) Steve Sutton, although others were involved in creating the...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

Also, there's a toolkit called Beuletools. It seems to have a lot of commands for setting up Epson (?) printers and one of the commands much cross referenced is ESC. Unfortunately, ESC is not mentioned anywhere. Does anyone have details of this command that you can send me, I'll do the necessary - ...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

I'm not sure if EasyPtr (and QPTR) should actually go into the S*BASIC reference manual - They have (pretty good) manuals of their own and I somehow feel a full introduction into PTR programming might be well beyond the scope of the S*BASIc manual. Im aware of your point , Tobias. I just think that...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

⋅  Make sure that the toolkit names in the individual keyword pages are standardised. We have, for example, 'Tiny Toolkit', 'TinyToolkit' and 'Qview TinyToolkit' - presumably all for the same toolkit? I've assumed this to be the case in the Toolkits page, and merges them all under TinyToo...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

However, because I've now got things set up with each keyword in it's own file, that constitutes a page, and while the page loads far quicker now - there's much less to load - browsing or scrolling around the other keywords is not as easy. However, to my mind, it's better and more efficient - I'm l...

Re: SuperToolkit II: PARUSE(name) - is it a bug or feature?

BTW: These functions are mighty ones, as they allow at least a rudimentary "Reflection" as in more modern languages like Java, C# and Python. Warning: Although the type of the formal vars should be ignored and the type of the calling parameters used, this is not always the case with PARTY...
