Re: Advanced QL User Guide

I tried to download it from the WOS site, but just couldn't get it working. The PDF would not download at all, the "Flipbook" just hung the browser when I tried, and although the zip file would download and unzip, none of the 17 files would open - here's the error I got in Adobe Acrobat R...

Re: Advanced QL User Guide

HI, Thank you for the clarification, I did correct the Advanced QL User Guide, which the example code is taken from the published book. It seems that the error was present in the QL Technical Manual, Adrian Dickens must of just copied Tony Tebby's manual, assuming no error, then the SMSQ/E Referenc...

Re: Advanced QL User Guide

Hi, Nearly finished the checking of ebook. But I have come across an issue: I have come across a problem with an example code fragment in the physical book, for the use of IO.SERIO or IOU.SSIO in SMSQ/E. The example in the Advanced QL User Guide, uses the same example in the QL Technical and the SM...

Re: Hello from Argentina!!!

Hola. You didn't mention microdrives so did the QL clone have them? They were the reason I bought a QL so there was somewhere to store files and didn't have to wait hours for the tape loading. I believe that Czerweny never built a QL clone - only ZX81, Timex SInclair 1500 and Spectrum clones Yep. T...

Re: QXL for first comer

If you won't post to Germany I'd be willing to provide a UK address and then forward it to tofro. No offence BackToQL, but tofro does a lot for things QL, should not face any disadvantage because of his location and he was first in line. ;) Many thanks for offering your support - It seems like Itim...

Re: Keyboard from where

I had to delete one of my posts this morning as I had a duplicate, but it was definitely my own that I deleted. I've seen the SQL error occasionally too, and I suspect that this might be causing the duplicates. I see to remember the error being "SQL Server has gone away". I've experienced...

Re: There are any place with references for C programing?

OK, now, next problem: Multitasking I do a simple loop forever that show the return return of mt_ipcom in a windows. But at the same time I can see superbasic cursor on the background, I can even type basic programs while the program (the job) is running. I was thinking that sd_curs/sd_cure will do...

Re: There are any place with references for C programing?

#include <qdos.h> void main(void){ short dm = 8; short dt = -1; mt_dmode (&dm,&dt); } not sure if it's ok, but works. Looks OK to me. But when I try to read the keyboard, I was totally lost, and I can't found information on internet about how to do it? Using QDOS, you can actually read the ...
