Re: Alternatives to C68

Hi,

Digital C SE, a development of a small C compiler can support floating point numbers. Now freeware on Dilwyn Jones site as digic.zip download. Not as sophisticated C compiler as C68.

Cheers

Re: QDOS/SMSQE PRINT Procedure Whitespace issue

Hi Martyn Neither font$ or margin$ could contain CHR$(10). font$ values range from CHR$(249) to CHR$(255). margin$ is just FILL$ CHR$(32) whatever the margin setting is in the Quill doc. I am planning to have a look at what Norman Dunbar's hexdump filter captures, which should tell me which end of t...

Re: QDOS/SMSQE PRINT Procedure Whitespace issue

Hi Here is the scenario, it is complex. I am working with 2 filters written in SBasic to convert Quill doc files to postscript files to print via CUPS on a RPi to my wifi printer. The first filter converts the Quill doc to formatted text in paragraphs with a paragraph font map. It then PRINTs each p...

QDOS/SMSQE PRINT Procedure Whitespace issue

Hi All, I have been writing a Quill doc to .ps file filter in SBASIC. The filter retains document format and font selection/output of font type in the .ps output file. I have found something which is puzzling. Which is that when a string that is entirely composed of CHR$(32) is output using the PRIN...

Re: Moire (aka bouncing lines)

Hi, You might be thinking of the listing and article of Simon Goodwin's in QLWorld_1991 December 1991 on page 29. A pdf of the magazine can be downloaded from Dilwyn Jones site http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/mags/index.html I think there was also a coverdisk with QL today the included screen savers that mi...

Re: How to uQLx on RPi

Hi

I did get uQLx to run on a RPi - it was however a Rpi 3 & that was 4 years ago - see post http://qlheaven.blogspot.com/2016/03/uqlx-on-rpi3.html

But I have no idea about a Koenig file.

Re: SuperBASIC function for type validation

Hi, Are you looking for a function/procedure in Superbasic to ensure only numeric input? If so there are a few examples in QL World Magazine. In QLWorld 1986 November 1986 page 36 there is a Superbasic function. The magazine can be downloaded from Dilwyn Jones site here http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/mags/...

Re: Emacs Programming

But how do I compile an SBASIC programme in QD?


I use the QBASIC thing installed in QD instead of the SBAS thing. It works off the F10 key in the same way and will fire up QLib to compile. I don't know of a way to have both things available simultaneously in QD.

Re: QD SBASIC Parser Thing

Hi Derek, You wrote All works great except there is a window opened which is channel #0,1 probably for error messages. I also use QD and the QD SBAS thing almost every time I write any SBASIC. I find that I need to explicity open chan#0 and chan#1 with an explicit window size (ideally outlined) for ...
