Would be interesting to know, why George Gwilt also has taken just 8 extension files to incorporate in Turbo programs.

Re: Tracking programming - File Management

Must it be a "CALL" program? No chances to make it as a Job to EX?

Re: QLiberator v3.43

Even the earliest SB programs used a variable for channels, so it really makes no sense to do a warning. I do not know, if Liberation has used "ON...GOTO", but I do not hope it. Changing that to "SELECT ON" is likely to take a lot of effort. Would be interesting to hear Martin, i...

Makes me wonder as nothing happens when you type "MODE 8" in SMSQ/E.....

Strange - as my Tile Map Editor runs on QPC in mode 8, as shown by the pictures from my previous post
QPC is configured with 512x256 resolution and QL colors
Ahh, ok, that works!

TeX and Metafont on the QL

TT has given C-sources of TeX and Metafont to me in the 80s. I think, he wanted to put that on the QL (perhaps he has done?,....who knows, QPLQ existed!). I do not know, if they are complete, if any one is interested, I can mail them.

Re: QXL.WIN (the domain name).

So, if I now have undestand it correctly, the QXL.WIN files on a QXL or QPC2 are the same, simply a container file but on e.g. Q68 or SD-QL it is a file based QLWA. Correct?

But Q68 or SD-QL also uses an XXX.WIN file (as far as I know) or am I wrong? So it is perhaps not a real QLWA on SD (I think).

Re: QXL.WIN (the domain name).

The Q40/60 used the QLWA file specification on a partition level, like the Atari QL Emulator, in the Atari file system. I haven't understood, why TT had not put the QXL.WIN container onto Atari, it is a nearly crash-proof way to store files. I always had problems with my HD on Atari, beeing it the ...
