Q-dock

Q-dock is a great program. I got it with the Q68. And yes here is the "but" has anyone else noticed that with a job name of only 2 characters i.e "QD" the Q-dock launcher moves the pointer to the right insead of launching QD. Make the job name "QD+" and everything works...

Re: EDSPR under QPC2 doesn't work

Hi,
mnch needs to be opened as #0 otherwise the outline won't be set correctly. The code seems to set mnch to be 5 or 6 if run as is. The whole if compiled clause needs to be changed to give the code above.

Re: EDSPR under QPC2 doesn't work

Hi,

Did you leave the lines mnch=0:pdch=1 :CLOSE#1,2
OPEN#mnch;con_2x1a0x26: INK#mnch;0

They are essential for the init procedure to outline the primary window mnch(#0) as it is the channel the pointer is read in.

Re: QD SBASIC Parser Thing

Hi,

QBASIC was sold as a separate program from QD. I still have the original disk and manual for QBASIC : it states it was copyright Jochen Merz Software.

Re: QD SBASIC Parser Thing

There are 2 "Things" that QD can use to either run or compile SBASIC 1. the SBAS/QD thing that parses and execute a SBASIC program as SBASIC and is in smsq/e or comes built in. QDs config block can be configured to use the SBAS/QD thing. 2. the QBASIC thing that comes as a separate extensi...

By my estimate, it's worth about £80-£95?


Possibly but in the end its only worth what a buyer is willing to pay.

Not that I am in the market, my GC has spent possibly 15+ years in storage (it also has an Ingot 6 sticker) as I then could afford a SGC + Aurora.
