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 QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't really understand how they work.
Original QL's: many (plus quite a bit of other old stuff and 140+ original software titles)
Custom AT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
QXLII card installed in a PC
Q40 and 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

One of the original PSION employees shared a story about QL chess, might be interesting to some: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/psion-stories-4-chess-huw-barnes
