Re: What QL emulator do you recommend?

that I create text in my PC as a TXT file and open it in QL? So I will save the txt file as _bas? You can do that. Map the microdrive slot to a Windows folder so the files show both on the PC and in Q-emuLator. Use a Windows editor that can handle non-Windows end-of-line characters. (For example No...

Re: Microdrive code dependence on CPU speed

is the mirodrice code in QDOS, Minerva and SMSQ/E dependent on CPU instruction timings? I seem to remember it is not. But wanted to ask here, in case someone is more familiar with the microdrives.

Re: QL Tinkering

New chapter for SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual If a document is written about SuperBASIC performance, keep in mind that there are separate SuperBASIC runtimes and what is true for one may or may not be true for another (I assume that's why you tested both on QPC and QL2K): ⋅ Sinclair ...
