Re: QL Menu Generator

Perhaps using original variable names is possible, if the QLiberated program was compiled with "Names on", then there are all variables and prc/fn names at the bottom of the compiled program. And in case of the QLib Error window, they are showed, so recognized by the runtime modul (I thin...

Re: QL Menu Generator

I think, it is a bit more complicated than a Turbo decompiler. I hope, Martin can find out the way, the Runtimes are used in conjunction with the compiled program, a totally different way compared to both the DP compiler. And the runtime system has to be disassembled to understand it all. There are...

Re: QL Menu Generator

One of the best news of the year! Thank you. This is one chance to try to take QLiberater itself a bit further. I have not actually looked, So is QLiberator, A QLiberated SuperBASIC program? I looked on Dilwyn's Web site to see if the sources are available, But there was no mention of them. So I gu...

I'm working on a QLiberator decompiler at the moment. So I may use the program for testing it.

It's still very much in the development stage, but it does throw out a lot of valid SuperBASIC code.

Re: DIY QubIDE Parts list

Someone else may know if this should work? (I'm not familiar with this board, or it's circuit diagram) If you remove all the plug-in IC's ( it looks like the two SMD IC's have something to do with the IDE socket), and plug it in. Does the QL work normally, or do you still get the bars? If you do thi...

Re: QL Net server to back-up Spectrum files?

What about 'microdrive2image' here http://www.worldofspectrum.org/utilities.html#disk on World of Spectrum. Mdv2Img is a tool to transfer and recover raw microdrive cartridge image from a 48K ZX Spectrum to PC consisting of two separate binaries. The first one (mdv2img.snp) is transferred via spxfr/...

Re: QL Net server to back-up Spectrum files?

Another possible solution..... Copy the Microdrive files to an audio cassette. Then use one of the programs available on line, to convert the audio cassette into something like a TAP file. And if you ever need to, just convert the TAP file back into an audio cassette. You could also create a WAV fil...

Re: Digital Precision 10 Disk set

What is the version number of disk 1? There was some problem with versions before v4.0. I don't know exactly what the problem was, But I have a note form DP dated December 1994, implying extraction problems. It says the new disk 1 has a yellow label, and briefly announces itself as Version 4.0 on bo...

Re: Minerva question

Thanks for that. That will probably account for my 'not implemented' errors.

I was just worried that one of my machine code routines had left a landmine somewhere in the system, that PRINT was stepping on in Minerva 1.97
