Re: Passing channels to jobs

PS: Of course, JOB_NAME (line 160) doesnt work in compiled programs, youd need my QLIBJN command for that. PRTSTR% isnt available on Knoware.no as I didnt think it worthwhile, but QLIBJN is.

Re: Passing channels to jobs

pjw your latest code samples and very useful associated notes look very interesting. When I find the time I will be cheekily converting your (much easier to read now you have added some : and REMs) code, into the form I like for compiling. Right now I was fascinated to see how the slaves, all worki...

Re: Passing channels to jobs

Re: Passing channels to jobs

I downloaded pjw's Test.zip code and unziped it to ram1 in SMSQ/E. After a bit of faffing around I manged to EX (as interpret, I think) the two _bas programs successfully. I can sort of see what is going on but I do not use the SMSQ/E interpreter so the programs are not in a form I am familiar with...

SMSQ/E V3.37

Wow! What a massive update! What a lot of work has gone into that! You, MK & WL, deserve a Lamborghini each for that! Sadly, I dont have any to hand right now, so I hope a round of applause will suffice. (A poor consolation, I know, but well meant!)

Re: Passing channels to jobs

<> Does via a toolkit mean via a Knoware toolkit. If so which might it be ? If not, can a general purpose toolkit be written? The toolkit in question was included with the example I gave above, Test.zip. It is a kind of PRINT command, except it can take a real channel ID. The other command, CHANID ...
