Re: QL Backup

Sorry about this - but when I said "Ram8_", I really meant "Win8_". The backed-up copies are made to a real WIN drive. These usually get formatted to 400 megabytes, which can last me for ages. No idea whether anyone else does this kind of thing.

Re: QL Backup

However, maybe a programme is a problem. There are all these Backup programs available. However, I prefer to write my own - simply because I enjoy writing programs, and SuperBASIC is just great! Whenever I update one of my programs under development, my system will automatically make a Backup of th...

I also use Windows 10, and have tried this program with Q-emuLator, Minerva 197 rom, running at original QL speed. My results are ... Interpreted 43 secs Turbo 9 secs QLiberator 3 secs After adding in the line IMPLICIT% counter, Turbo's time improved to 4 secs. Still not as fast as QLiberator, but n...

Re: Listing unset variables

once.zip This is all about finding spelling mistakes of variable names. I have written a program called “once”. The idea is that such misspellings may only have occurred once. My program scans through the loaded program looking for names. The first time a name is seen the line number is stored in t...

Re: Listing unset variables

Never needed it myself, but it would be an interesting exercise to similarly dump list of all set variable names and their values. Not sure if it has already been done? Where this could come in very handy is when debugging a program, and you wish to get the values of some variables in order to find...

Re: QPC2 Windows Quirk

Hi Steve,

This is interesting. It could be caused by something to do with SMSQ/E's Window manager.
Or it could be to do with the colours being used. Can you please give us more details of how your version of QPC2 is setup,
and the exact code you're using, so that we can replicate it.

Re: (Nearly) solved: FuNction which tests if a variable is set

Hi again, Well, I've tested this "typo" program out, and have to report that it doesn't work. It does not recognise any typing mistakes. As far as I can gather, SMSQ/E forgets about them. As I see matters, scanning through the name table is not the answer. I believe we will have to resort ...

Re: (Nearly) solved: FuNction which tests if a variable is set

Have you thought out how this could be done? I was only considering just scanning SuperBASIC name table and list out names of unset variables. Easily done, soon... I agree, this would be the easiest solution. I've written a rough version. It scans through the name table looking for simple float or ...
