Re: Programs from QL advanced User Guide

Hi Bill

Here is one from the book that I have typed in - the assembly listing to show the QL's 2 screens without Minerva, if you are interested.

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...
