Re: SMSQ/E keyboard tables for BBQL

This is my fixed up version. It runs, it compiles,.. but whether it is error free I cant guarantee. If anyones interested, they could do worse than compare it with Dilwyn's scan, and test it, to see it an error free version can be produced. And then feed it back to the "QL community".. Lan...

Re: SMSQ/E keyboard tables for BBQL

I just tested KBD_TABLE in SMSQ/E 3.33 under QPC2, with 33, 49 and 44. No problem. I ran TT's program Lang_bas and LRESPRed the result. I then typed KBD_TABLE 440. It was wierd, but certainly something had changed. With a bit of fiddling I managed to revert to KBD_TABLE 44 and all was well again. I ...

Re: SMSQ/E keyboard tables for BBQL

There are some documents by Tony Tebby on the subject. Complete with example programs to build a keyboard module and append the module to SMSQ/E. They may be on Dilwyn's site, called something like smsqmodu_zip, containing the documents langmod_doc and smsqmod_doc. I believe these are scans of artic...

Re: QPC2 on Second Screen

Ive had this before, but cant remember the fix, nor can I try it here at the moment. So a couple of (wild) suggestions: 1) Try moving QPC2's startup dialogue to the high-res screen before you let rip. (Probably wont cut it) 2) Edit the C:\ProgramData\QPC\qpc.ini file directly. Set the resolution you...

Re: 15th QL Italian meeting

Sadly, I have a metered internet connection and only manage to scrape by each month, so no WebEX for me. Wishing y'all a good time and a great show tomorrow!

Re: Proposal about the file system

I wrote a file backup system for transporting incremental changes to file sets. I used FBKDT for storing a CRC of certain files as a check for renames. However, in the end I decided not to use this system location and used a control file instead, so as not to introduce incompatibilities with future ...

Re: QL Tinkering

Interesting idea, Per! Yes. It just came to me in a flash as I was having a lie-down this afternoon. :) Very unfortunately, however, this will not compile using Turbo - This doesn't allow expressions in DATA statements. Theres always a trade-off ->sigh<- A shame there isn't anything like a LABEL st...

Re: QL Tinkering

While I agree that GO TO/GO SUB should not be left in the hands of those most likely to use them, I do rather miss the ON var GO TO construct. In certain situations it avoids all the IFs, ANDs and buts, as in the case of If a = 1, do this, If a = 2, do that. SELect ON compensates for that in many wa...
