Or perhaps your anti virus software detected it? I ax because of the issues Im having with my laptop ( See topic ) After cleaning it ou...

Re: Tumbling QL animation

Perhaps the most obvious solution is:

a = 20: print 1/a

or, depending on circumstances, you might be happy with

print 1/20.00001

Re: QLib and Pipes

Actually, it could be trickier to work around than I first thought. It seems SMSQ/E's named pipes persist as long as one job still has an open channel to it. Apparently QLib's version does not. Im still on the case, but if anyone has a proper solution, please let me know!

Re: SMSQ/E sources - mirror git repository

The polite and proper way would have been to have this discussion prior to making such a move. It may have been a good idea, or it may not. That decision was not for one person to make. Once the toothpaste is out of the tube, its hard to put it back.
So lets have the discussion now. For and against.
