Re: Maximum Devices in QDOS/Minerva

Hiya! Yes, there is only space allocated in the Sysvars for links to the Definition Blocks for 16 directory-type device 'instances'. I thought it might also be the same for SMQE, but have never checked... I believe that the TK2 procedure DEL_DEFB releases all these as long as there are no open chann...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

All good feedback, Marcel - thanks! I'll add such comments/ideas in to the next release as well as to draw-out the additional guidance that is currently only documented in the REMarks in SendFileMQ itself. Meanwhile - anyone here fancy trying this out on uQLx and feeding back here? All my own Unix h...

Do we add SMSQ/e to it ?


No need to add anything, QPC2 includes a recent SMSQ/E binary compiled for it.

Welcome back :-)

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Good morning Marcel! That's great feedback, thank you! Yes, SendFileMQ includes a variable 'netSelf%' set near the top of the listing for my setup. Adjust as needed... Now you remind me, I too use the Minerva variant of EDLINe$ on SMSQ/SBASIC rather than the original DIYTK version - if I remember co...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi - thanks for that. I should have the revised firmware built against the latest libraries available next weekend, but yes, in the meantime, just flash the raw HEX file uploaded earlier. Let me know how you get on. Meanwhile, here's a revised SendFileMQ (v1.5) designed to work under SuperBasic on e...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi again Daniele! Got it... Please MERGE the following three lines in to your current/adapted SendFileMQ SuperBasic program: 2120 netBlk$=netPayload$(9 TO result%): blkLen%=LEN(netBlk$) 2170 PRINT #fCh%,netBlk$(fHdrLen%*fileHdrFlag% + 1 TO blkLen%); 2210 PRINT #fCh%,netBlk$; I'll publish a revised, ...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Ciao Daniele! Thank you for that. So, I've since done some of my own testing, using Minerva 1.98, TK2 (v2.34) and a slightly modified SendFileMQ running in Q-emuLator v3.31. Sending to a QL works as expected, but receiving I see that over-sized file being produced, just as you described. Specificall...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Good morning Danielle! Yes, I'll post it here. I've actually just noticed another issue: The SuperBASIC version produces files that are too long. I think it's a SBASIC/SuperBASIC difference in handling LOCAL variables. Yeah - Since SBASIC came of age, I have developed a habit of passing tons of para...
