Re: Tumbling QL animation

Hi Martyn & Per, Thanks for the useful suggestions. However, I often use DIY programs which manipulate fractions, much as we learnt at school, by classic tabulation. It is more accurate with very big number calculations, even if much slower... After living in France for 42 years, I still find pr...

Re: Tumbling QL animation

Hi,

Working on a animation program, I found this nasty bug :

100 PRINT 5E-2 , 1/20

Interpret it and then compile it under Turbo.

Turbo compiled, it treats 1/20 as an INTEGER divide... Bang!

Regards,
Steve.

Re: Wire Frame Graphics

Hi, Thanks Rich : You need to have downloaded free NOTEPAD++ onto your PC and installed it. On the QL Forum : copy and paste the code you want into notepad. Then double_click the 'Format-windows' text on the notepad bottom line. Go into files (top left corner), click on save under, say G:\filename, ...

Re: Tumbling QL animation

Hi Folks, Many thanks to EmmBee for taking an interest in some old code of mine. He stimulated me to revamp the code as follows : Here is a variant that you should not EXEP ! Just copy and paste it into a word processor and then save the code to some QL MEDIUM ... Regards, Steve. ___________________...

Re: Happy Birthday!

Hi, Wednesday 25th April I celebrated my 70th birthday. I have had my QL now for almost 35 years... half my life ! It has always been a great pleasure to use. I would never have beleived that such an object would still be functional and useful after so many years. Computing has made great strides si...

Re: Talent Graphics Toolkit

hi, Does this post refer to the Talent Graphics-drawing GRAPHIQL program ? If so, I would be interested to know if the 'Find area and FILL colour' routines could be made freeware for SuperBasic programs ? They are very powerful, and if my information is correct, are very short algorithms. (I have wa...

Re: COPYRIGHT

Hi,
Thankyou to all the contributors to this thread. The information has indeed clarified the situation.
The 'Shrink TSP' team has therefore decided to release the program under a GPL license.
Best Wishes,
Steve.

Re: COPYRIGHT

The SHRINK TSP C++ code weighs in at some 65ko, but to use it there are some 11mo of associated files zipped. Maybe the easiest way to publish it would be to put it on the QL Forum, together with the SuperBasic and C68 versions ? That is, if the Forum could handle such big files. Is this possible ? ...

Re: COPYRIGHT

Thankyou for your detailed replies and suggestions. In particular, Rich, our main concern is that if someone else claims our code or method, by them patenting it, we might be prevented from making it open_source... We do have many emails with code attatchments on our computers, covering the entire p...
