Re: QL Menu Generator

Hi Ralf, QMGxx_cde is linked in the main program, that is a keyword "INP" for whatever it is used. Snapshot_exe seems to be the same, TT once has written in one of the early QJump newsletters, simply make a screen snapshot. Do you have any of the QJump newsletters? As far as I know, there...

Re: QL Menu Generator

Back to the original topic of this post, another later version of QL Menu Generator has been found (dated 1995): https://princess.kekfiles.com/dl/hpvE2tAUdej3bK5Ye5nQAw/1573068020/557885320/5db9e25bc1c0b9.48922066/QMG95.zip I think, both are the same, the main programs date (inside at the beginning...

Re: QL Menu Generator

Perhaps using original variable names is possible, if the QLiberated program was compiled with "Names on", then there are all variables and prc/fn names at the bottom of the compiled program. And in case of the QLib Error window, they are showed, so recognized by the runtime modul (I thin...

Re: QL Menu Generator

"There are similarities to Turbo, I am reusing parts of the turbo decompiler. And so far I have not needed to delve into the runtime module. Don't expect the variable names from the original program to be preserved in the compiled version. Some are, some are not ." Perhaps using original v...

Re: QL Menu Generator

So yes - if decompiling works, that would be great I think, it is a bit more complicated than a Turbo decompiler. I hope, Martin can find out the way, the Runtimes are used in conjunction with the compiled program, a totally different way compared to both the DP compiler. And the runtime system has...

This is one chance to try to take QLiberater itself a bit further.

I have not actually looked, So is QLiberator, A QLiberated SuperBASIC program?


As far as I know: Yes, self compiled from SuperBASIC.

Re: QL Menu Generator

I'm working on a QLiberator decompiler at the moment. So I may use the program for testing it. It's still very much in the development stage, but it does throw out a lot of valid SuperBASIC code. One of the best news of the year! Thank you. This is one chance to try to take QLiberater itself a bit ...

Re: QL Menu Generator

So here is the ZIP of my QMG V2. Good luck. The main program does not include the QLiberator runtimes, so may work with 3.36. QPTR perhaps is an old version, so if the recent one does not work, take the supplied one. I am lucky to have an USB floppy with NEC chip, as it reads all of my 25 years disk...

Re: QL Menu Generator

I once bought it, but never used it seriously, just to scan other programs to look at their sprites. The sources, which Markus has put in the mail group is just a product of the program, not the program itself. I fear, if Wolfgang does not have the SB source, no chance, as the program is compiled wi...
