Re: Minerva, C68 and memory mysteries

(This is actually the first time that I would disagree with the makers of the C68 library that defining this function to return a pointer and/or a negative error was good design.)

I have experenced a couple of other problems in UQLX which may ,or may not, be a problem with my IPBasic code. I need to do more testing to try to isolate it. Tha...

Re: IP Device driver

32bit or 64bit uQlx, as we know 64bit still has many undiscovered variables issues due to terrible use of C types in the original source code. Pretty sure it's 32 bit. It's an old (Celeron?) Dell PC running Xubuntu. I may make a test, and set a flag in IPBasic to indicate that the family value need...

Re: uQLx 2018a

For Pointer Environment, v2.01 works as far as I can tell from my testing. Your v1.39 must have a different code layout and uQlx doesn't have a patch for that, so maybe you should upgrade to v2.01 (later versions don't seem to work at all, Dilwyn also seems to have suffered this from comments on his...

Re: uQLx 2018a

Hi again, I have a new observation regarding window redraw (screen update). `uQLx' window's update is alright for zoom=1, when zoomed 2x, it sometimes trails black rectangles in the frame, when overlapped by some other windows, and after user brings it to front.
