Re: Q68 Software SD Card

I could make this available for download, but I am not sure who would host a 4Gb file.


Mega!

Re: C++

...So any nonsense that 68000 cant handle C++ is exactly that! I'd be inclined to agree, I program AVR microcontrollers in C++ and they only have 32KB Flash RAM plus 2KB for variables etc. Ok, admittedly, I have to cross-compile from Linux->AVR but we could do that for the Ql as well I suppose. Plu...

Re: C++

I spent 2 years making good money writing C++ code for 68332 micro controller based devices.

So any nonsense that 68000 cant handle C++ is exactly that!

There are some modern 68000 C compilers, they just need a QL linker added, someone even started work on one of them in the forum!

Re: QDOS-GCC How to run the binaries?

So this is where the include/library files should end up after running the perl script (which is buggy as hell and I cant remember the fixes). ls -lR /usr/local/qdos/ /usr/local/qdos/: total 12 drwxr-xr-x 2 graeme graeme 4096 Feb 19 2017 bin drwxr-xr-x 5 graeme graeme 4096 Feb 19 2017 include drwxr-...

Also, if my rusted memory is right, QDOS unzip also recognizes the xtcc record. Then, suprisingly, just zipping on PC side and unzipping on QL side also does the job.

yes you need -O1 or -O2 on pc side as an option. i forget which.

Re: Bug in QL C - Lattice C?

try pow(2.0,2.0)

pow takes doubles as arguments and you've passed it ints, older compilers don't always promote correctly.

Re: uQLx 2018a

Just as a follow up - the bug accessing win devices on uQLX under Windows Subsystem for Linux is specific to version 2018a - the older version without the TCP fix works just fine. Sounds like the problem is probably there in 2017 but triggers slightly differently due to different compiler/libc or t...

Re: SGC successor brainstorming

..Maybe this is being looked at from the wrong direction? Maybe we should thing in reverse and think of the original QL as a peripheral to a new single-board computer which fits within the expansion slot? It sounds like it's possibly a simpler solution to all the bottlenecks of the original system....
