50 Years of BASIC

One of my nieces is currently staying with me in Geneva. Geneva is currently covered in low cloud, so we decided to climb a mountain peak to the south of us called "Le Signal des Voirons". The peak lay above the cloudline and from this peak we had spectacular views of mountains sitting in ...

Re: QPC2 and MAc air M1

XorA wrote So I just checked and I had QPC2 working on my M1 Mac I am on the codeweavers.com site at the moment. CrossOver Mac is free for 14 days and then either $60 or $500. CodeWeavers claim to be "Software liberators". I suppose in the sense of "liberating" you of $500, they...

Re: QPC2 and MAc air M1

mk79 is the expert and he seems to be saying no to QPC-on-Air You might be able to execute QPC on an M1, by installing Rosetta2, then Wine and lastly QPC. So:- (and I may have this all wrong) Rosetta emulates x86, WINE translates Windows calls to macOS calls and QPC emulates a 68???? processor. http...

Thank you for the answer but Qemulator does not run on the M1

I did not mean Qemulator. The software that runs on my ARM based Pi400 is SMSQmulator. It runs under Java.

Re: QPC2 and MAc air M1

This is a question I asked in an earlier post. I imagine you either have to use WINE (if it works on a macair) or instead of QPC, you try and run Qmulator. After some help from Norm et al. I managed to get Qmulator to run on a Pi400 that also uses an ARM processor. I would also like an answer to you...

Re: NOOB QUESTION: learning machine code

Thanks for the info Derek. When I find the time I will concentrate on setting up an assembler/QD as you suggest. I downloaded Norm's magazine and scanned though the pages and quickly realised that I would really have to work hard to understand what is being written. Like many subjects there is a &qu...

Re: NOOB QUESTION: learning machine code

Thanks for doing that, Derek. The first thing I did when learning to write a BASIC program was to create a window in which to display the results of my experiments. (And I don't mean writing to a window of the user interface). I find I need to "see" the results of my programming efforts im...

Re: 5 trivial SBASIC programs

I like your SMSQ/E setup. Could you create a WIN zip file of the setup that you are displaying and post it? It looks like you are running SMSQE on a version of Linux installed on a PC, is this correct?. Did you ever try my BASIC speed test program on your system? Personally I have no use for an inte...

5 trivial SBASIC programs

I have been trying to learn to program in SBASIC using documents found in Dilwyn's site. Without an ancient SMS2 setup floppy I had, I think I would have found writing multitasking programs for SMSQE almost impossible. As it is, I have only scratched the surface of what is possible, as there is so m...
