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

The program work...

Check out the QL Service manual section 4 http://www.sinclairql.net/srv/qlsm4.html#s4-p1.2 If IC 17 is still there, then a lot of mods are needed. Hi, thanks for that - would the lack of mods (this has none) cause the issues I'm seeing? Cheers! I've never encountered a QL with version PM. But I thi...

Re: ALCHP and LOAD problem

What I had done, is write a small boot loader program to LBYTES and CALL some SuperBASIC extensions. Then LOAD a test program for the SuperBASIC extensions, which I was going to trace through with QMON/JMON. Only I mistakenly used ALCHP instead of RESPR. And when I tried the extensions, Crash...

ALCHP and LOAD problem

I don't know if I am just going a bit potty, but... I have noticed a problem in SMSQ/E with ALCHP, where LOAD will corrupt the allocated space. Start SMSQ/E (I'm using QPC2 as an example) type x=ALCHP(12000), then PRINT HEX$(x,32) and make a note of the address. In my case it returned $00140404 type...

Re: IP Device driver

Best thing is if we just fix the uQlx source! We don't want "special" versions just for one emulator when its the easiest one to get fixed! I won't have time probably in the coming couple of weeks but anyone is free to post patch to github! If you do a fix for the above problem. You might...

Re: IP Device driver

Please ignore me if I'm talking bollox, again, but, I did some network programming on Unix and Windows back in the mid 1990s and I seem to remember getting back to front values. Have you neglected to call htons, htonl (host to network short/long) or ntohs/ntohl (network to host short/long) to get t...
