Don't tell me that that is a config[urable] option! Duh! :?

Will have a look. Thanks.
It appears to be the factory setting, so dont blame yourself ;)

Re: QPAC2 Files Foible in QPC2 on Linux.

Now, look at the title of the Files window again - it's showing " Files dos1_ a sm_ " instead of " Files dos1_ A sm_ ". Why I wonder, is QPAC lower-casing my path and failing to find anything on my case sensitive Linux laptop. You could try to configure QPAC2 Files to NOT lowerc...

Or if youre using SMSQ/E do

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

What machine do you have, Andrew? All SMSQ/E is, is a MUCH better version of Qdos (+tk2+ptr_gen+wman+hotkey++). It wont run on a BBQL, but anything from a GC and up should be fine. Regarding PE programming, you could do worse that try EasyPtr (available from Marcel's excellent site here ). Its much ...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

In SMSQ/E (and Qdos with Hotkey loaded) you might be able to do something with HOT_CMD. If any SBASIC will do (not only job 0) then EXEP 'SBASIC'; command$ could also work. Or you could write a small toolkit in assembler to PICK job 0 to the top (requires the Pointer Environment, so SMSQ/E or Qdos w...

Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

sys_klock would be an interesting copy protection scheme, but not really what I was looking for: a way to not accidentally break into only an EX'd SBASIC so that it behaves like a compiled program running as any other job. The ideal situation is to have break passed as ERR_NC into then WHEN ERRor h...

Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

Are you quite sure? Some commercial programs that used Fastload I think, you mean the SPK, the Software Production Kit from Tony Tebby, where "OPEN_IN mdv1_xx: FLRUN" is stated. There, you could use a CTRL-Break prohibition if you want that, when you design the "_" file. Thats t...

Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

Incidentally: what is the protocol for contributing back into SMSQ/E mainline development? I would like to avoid having to maintain my private fork for this if others perhaps find it useful as well and would want to contribute upstream. Is there any way of doing this? O Write to Wolfgang Lenerz. I ...

Re: SMSQ SBASIC EX and break

Ah, yes: The poke to disable break under Qdos is poke_l 163900, 0. Unfortunately this also disables all other scheduler tasks :evil: (And that still doesnt remind me how I managed to switch break on again. There was a break_on/break_off toolkit out there once. Perhaps that was it?) Actually it disa...
