Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Impressive! Still working on the issue with different output of V3.36 and V3.37. Thats to say, Im producing the problem and Martin has been trying to solve it! My biggest wish for a Qlib update is for a $30 char job name length! I would think that's possible. But you may have to have a special runt...

Re: Digital C SE Foibles on QPC2

I know nothing about C, so this might be a stupid suggestion. What could be happening, Is that when you execute the program. A window is drawn, "Hello World!" is printed. The window is closed. Then SMSQ/E restores the background, making the window disappear. All this happening before you c...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

I had a little look at the two dis-assemblies. At the various pointers Offsets from start 336 version 337 version 146 Start of SB program 146 182A SB Extensions 1828 1B86 Line no list 1B84 25EE Name list 25EC 2728 Name table 271C In the 337 version. The SuperBASIC program is 2 bytes shorter, and the...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

I disassembled the start of the object code. I know its unlikely to answer why my program crashed, but it is interesting that V3.36 and V3.36x - which are supposed to be the same program should produce such different results using the identical input (sav) file: Here is the original: . . and here i...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

Martin, there may be an issue with the decompiler: Theres a program I have that compiles and runs perfectly with Qlib 3.36, but if I use your decompiled Qlib 3.36, it errors when run. The funny thing is that the temporary wrk file compiles and runs ok, but if I QSAVE the file from SMSQ/E and compil...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

I sometimes enter this forum for fun, after more than 25 years without a QL or compatible system in house. Then I stumble across this post about decompiling my Disk Mate 5. That sounds great! I hope you will post news about it if it is done, or possible at all. Lovely to hear the software is still ...

Re: Kempston Disk Interface issue

Hi, The QL I picked up recently had a Kempston disk Interface fitted and although it works when I plug in either a 3.5” Drive or a Gotek the picture on the TV starts skipping. I am using a RGB SCART lead from Retrocomputershack. If I unplug the floppy cable the skipping/jumping stops. I have replac...

Re: MDV Dump

In the MDI driver http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/utils/MDIdriver108.zip there is a program (SuperBASIC with a shot M/C routine to do the actual reading) that will read all the sectors on a Microdrive cartridge (good bad or indifferent) to convert it into an image file. There are also facilities to examine ...

Re: QLiberator decompiler

I don't think the QLib runtime module has anything to do with externals. I think the externals are handled by the _OBJ file itself. I had a very quick look at your assembler code, where you are examining the name table entries with A3 and A5. This is the routine I was thinking about for converting a...
