Re: QLSD driver testers sought

Thanks Marcel! If that is the case WIN_CHECK seems to work fine and you need to backup your image files, re-format the SD and copy them over again as they seem to be fragmented. I was careful to copy single WIN files across to the SD card one at a time following a fresh format, but will try this ste...

Hi Norman

I must leave that request with Tobias as the author, but agree that, if he's willing to, it'd make a very interesting article to augment your already highly interesting periodicial :-)

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

Just to close the loop on this topic... Tobias has kindly shared with me an example assembler macro that can form the basis of a 'bridge' between assembler and support C routines. Like all the best solutions to a problem, it is simple and elegant (once you factor-in the couple of documented caveats)...

Re: QLSD driver testers sought

Hi Marcel! Thanks for that. OK, so now with your confirmation of the correct (new/extended?) syntax for the WIN_DRIVE command, I see where I was going wrong: I was using WIN_CHECK <drive_num> as a means to determine whether the last WIN_DRIVE <drive_num>,... mount-attempt was successful. Instead, us...

Re: QLSD driver testers sought

Hi again Marcel Been playing a bit more with the updated QLSD WIN driver. No problems thus far, but perhaps you could help me with something... I'm planning to test more aggressively by mass-copying between two 16MB WIN images on the same card - "QXL.WIN" and "SDC2.WIN", but can'...

Re: QLSD driver testers sought

Hi Marcel! I haven't yet tested exhaustively, but using the Minerva+QLSD v1.05 image burnt to EPROM in my memory expanded (but otherwise bare) QL: The legacy SD HW is detected as such (V1). The boot file on my SD card/WIN image loads and runs as expected. I'll report back again after I play some mor...

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

Hi Martin! That's a interesting approach you outline and makes a lot of sense. As you know, I have studied your IPNet code and concept and have given some consideration to how the QLUB adapter and your QLNet over IP might co-exist and bridge between the two 'worlds'. That's something I'll pick-up ag...

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

Hi Tobias! Thank you - yes, task in the TT sense - although not as a result of an interrupt or schedluler loop call, but more a shared extension to an existing device driver or other non-job code. In fact, I anticipate making the interface layer into a callable Thing - or atleast to allow the code e...

Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

Dear gurus... Question: Is it practical to program a 'task' using C68 on the QL, as opposed to creating a standalone QDOS 'job'? If so, what advice do you have? Background: In my on-going effort to bring the QLUB adapter to life (QL Net to USB device - for QL emulators to talk directly to real QLs) ...

Re: SuperCharge Decompiler

Hi Martin Perhaps you've already found this resource, but the UConfig documentation/program from George Gwilt (available from Dilwyn's site or directly from George's main Turbo repository) appears to align with what you've found in the DATA statements of the xwords program. I haven't dived-in to any...
