Re: Quanta Magazine

Volume 35, Issue 2, Arrived today.

I'm guessing its just very late, rather than some nice Quanta person sending me a replacement, As the copy date on the inside back page says to send in things for the Aug/Sept/Oct issue before 5th Nov 2018

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

I think I have got my network driver working in uqlx2017. uqlxNETdriver4_cde.zip I had to make some changes to the routine that reads data packets. I have done a quick test between two copies of uqlx2017 running on the same PC. And a test between uqlx2017 on a Linux machine, and QPC2 on a Windows X...

Re: Proposal about the file system

Someone correct me if go wrong here.... With the exception of Microdrives (don't know about RAM drives), The file headers are only stored in the Directory. There are 64 unused bytes at the start of every stored file (where the file header is also stored on MDV's). These bytes are usually unavailable...

Quanta Magazine

I'm wondering if I have missed an issue or two of the Quanta magazine.

I have definitely got Volume 35, Issue 1. Feb/March/April 2018. Is there any more?

I know that there are/were problems with the lack of an editor. Just wondering if my copies got lost in the post.

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

Thats the code for DrvClose() Which are you referring to. "move.l $1C(a3),a3" That's the address of the I/O routine in the driver linkage block. or "The address that is called (A3) contains $AAAAAAAC" AAAA is the I/O routine. This is from the UQLX source code QLdrivers.c #if 0 /...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

I have been doing a few tests trying to find why my network driver does not work with UQLX2017. I have found odd behaviour when it tries to read from the network with a system trap call. It does not return an error code in D0, D0 remains unchanged. Here's a code snippet from my driver. ; -----------...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

I have re-assembled my IPBasic program to use a '*' in front of IP devices. And did a quick test on UQLX2017 IPBasic.zip If you open two copies of UQLX on the same PC. Then on one enter 100 OPEN#8,"*tcp_" 110 IP_BIND#8,5800,"127.0.0.1" 120 IP_LISTEN#8 130 REPeat loop 140 ch=IP_AC...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

Now you have recompiled QULX, You might like to try http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/internet/IPBasic.zip It's a SuperBASIC interface to the IP device driver, that allows you to use individual...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

Martin, I can make a few changes to the source code of UQLX ( on my system) to edit out the *, and recompile. I will then retest with Dilwyn's test program. If you have a short test suite for your IP driver, I can test out the IP driver on the updated UQLX. Tim Swenson If you recompile you will nee...
