The Last One

A bit late I know, but Happy New Year. AI & Program Generators when did they arise? What the future might have held for BASIC and other programming languages! In the early 1980’s while across the world there was a concentrated effort to developing higher level computer coding languages, down in ...

Re: QL Tinkering

Hi Seasonal Greetings - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. I haven’t any figgie pudding for you but maybe this will be acceptable instead. It’s been a busy year and I haven’t had as much time as I would like pursuing my interest in QL BASIC. Some ideas did start to gel earlier in the y...

Re: QL Tinkering

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.

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...
