Re: QL/E tiny free space on QXL.WIN, Urs?

An 80mb container and only about 770k free? Is there some kind of bug perhaps with the way it calculates free space? I dont see why not. Its a disk stuffed with goodies for you to test. Most people dont need five different text editors or a ton of games they never play. Try them out, choose the one...

Re: QL/E tiny free space on QXL.WIN, Urs?

Could QLWARZ run under any other SMSQ/E system, like: SMSQmulator, Q68, QXL, Atari QL emulator, due to they use the same level of operating system. I guess, with a little elbow grease, it could be made to work on any system that uses .WIN container files.. The simplest in most cases, perhaps, would...

Re: Emulation program freeze

If you don't code a DATA directive (or create code that is linked), the toolset will assume a default data space of 4K, which is by far enough for most trivial programs. 24 bytes (just realizing that statement) is thus a bit on the frugal end ;). What apparently happened is that the stack ran backw...

Re: Emulation program freeze

Hi Alan, Its ages since I created a job in assembler. I mainly write toolkits. IIRC you need some stack space! Make the following alterations (first and last lines) and your job should work: ... data 24 ; some dataspace (sloppy estimate) MT.FRJOB equ $05 Base bra.s Start ds.b 6-(*-Base) dc.w $4afb ...

Re: Emulation program freeze

My problem is twofold. First, the above program (compiled under Qemulator), runs fine on my real hardware but freezes when I attempt to run it using Qemulator. If I comment out the trap #3 of the IO.SBYTES routine the program will at least run to completion. Hi Alan, Its ages since I created a job ...

Re: Happy Birthday!

It must be remembered that America was the first country so large that the month a message was sent was important data - until the 1920s, it took 6-8 weeks for messages to pass from coast to coast. I know Americans like to think so. However, Russia, Canada and China are bigger. I guess Russia is so...
