Thanks for your assistance.

It works like magic.

Ok, then the executable that you previously created must have been bad somehow. Odd, but like I say, I have no experience with Linux.


Collector of original and some newer QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't understand how any of them work.
Original QL's: 3x German, 1x UK model (plus quite a bit of other old stuff and 100+ original software titles)
Custom AT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
PC with QXLII card installed
Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

No ;-) I meant you can read it in the code (loading the file in an editor). Of course you can read it after execution.

Now I see wht you mean.

QED does not show any ASCII text of the Help pages when I used QED to open the Chess_exe
