We only had 6 CP/M computers, so we had to book a computer 2 weeks in advance , to test the programs we wrote with pen and paper :) I had a QL with C1 Pascal, so I was fortunate :) All programs I wrote in University were in C1 Pascal -...

New keyboard keys that will fit the QL?

Djordje Mitic has started a new project: a Spectrum 128k replica case with mechanical keyboard.

Re: QL / PASCAL

If I remember right, a Seek beyond EOF on a writable file should actually extend the file with zero bytes until that position is valid (i.e. emulating a Unix sparse file). If I remember correctly in Turbo Pascal, Borland Pascal and Delphi a seek beyond EOF will result in an error. To expand the fil...
