Hi All, Busy people have busy minds my father used to say. In keeping busy my family being avid readers have produced a few books of their own over the years, some of which I have had the privilege to edit and format. Some years back I even managed to put together a collection of short stories, a co...

Re: QL Tinkering

hi, I've made a couple of tweeks to my QBSoundsv4. When (P)laying through the pages the page notes are now changed inline with what is being played. My SuperBASIC code tinkering I now carry out using the QPC2 emulator so just for fun and as a help to myself I have updated my QBFTidy to handle SubDIR...

Re: QPC2

Hi, mk79 Over the last few months I’ve more or less migrated across to the QPC2 emulator for my SuperBASIC code tinkering. I use the 44 UK keyboard but find only one of the key combination works namely Ctrl Shift 6. I have a work around but if the next release could follow the QL keyboard it would b...

QL2020

Happy New Year to you all…. I start the year as usual with odd thoughts on what the future might bring, as to where we might be heading and then with 2020 just over the horizon I went off on a tangent as you do! For some reason 23 has always been a significant number in my life. My mother was in her...

Re: QL Tinkering

Hi, stevepoole If I recall TURBO has an IMPLICIT% command to make variables used for FOR and SELect identifiers Integers as opposed to the standard QL SuperBASIC FP. As a general rule in Industry, don't take more time coding than will be saved by using that new code. But as tinkerers, we may just en...

As to FOR loops my Iteration Test prog results show as you implied For loop using integers are slightly faster maybe. Ref; New chapter for SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual Norman here’s...

Re: QL Tinkering

Hi, WRAP thank you for bringing your SuperBASIC tricks to light... and provoking the thoughts... and maybe a new chapter... Your results on composite AND or nested IFs does seem to bear you out. It must be the way the Interpreter accesses the keywords IF and AND... If anyone’s serious about this new...
