Re: Enable Caps Lock from SuperBASIC

You can on a Black Box QL with a POKE_W 163976,65280 to turn Caps Lock on, and POKE_W 163976,0 to turn it off.

However it does not work in QPC2. I'd also like to know a way of doing it in QPC2.

Re: Behaviour of SER_BUFF in QPC & SMSQ/E

Does the USB to Serial microcontroller device/software handle RS232 handshaking, hardware Ready/Busy, or XON/XOFF? Can it buffer data if QPC2 is says it's busy, or does it just pass the data through regardless? If it does not halt the data, then you would loose data. Which increasing the serial buff...

Re: Network Access Server - NAServe

There has not been any feedback about problems. So, working on the principle of, No news is good news. I will give it a few more days, Then slap V1.00 on it, do a manual, and release it with the source code.

Re: Psion Archive

How about exporting the database to Abacus, add the extra field, then import back into Archive.

Re: Microperipherals Floppy Interface R/W

Going back to the original question Hallo, I just bought a Microperipherals Disk Interface and Floppy Disk drive. It works with the QL (set jumpers to have DD 1440 sectors), it formats, reads and writes fine. The problem is when i try to read (and write) MP formatted disks using emulators (Qemulator...

Network Access Server - NAServe

This is a Network Access Server for the Black Box QL. It performs a similar function to FSERVE, but blocks access to devices and files on the server. Unless they are specifically shared. It has been back ported from my IP Network Device driver. And includes a few other Network improvements from that...
