Re: Running processes and available memory ?

Hi Tobias ...ram disks grow dynamically with the amount of files you put there... That's it ! The more I write files on ram disks, the less RAM remains that explains why I eventually run out of memory. I always thought the RAM disc size was pre-allocated. I will do the trick with DATA_USE and give y...

Re: Running processes and available memory ?

Hi Tobias. Welcome - but don't call the QL an 8-bit computer. People might get upset ;) Actually I didn't meant QL is a 8 bit computer (since there is a 68000 inside as the MacIntosh 12 days later), but I meant "I have no such problems with other computer from my collection which are 8 bits&quo...

Running processes and available memory ?

Hello. I'm a newbie with Sinclair QL (although I deal with several other computers from the 80s, mainly 8 bits). I recently got a Tetroid interface card with Minerva ROM, built-in Toolkit 2, floppy disc interface and 768k extra memory. I'm currently trying to extract some programs from disc using th...

Re: Hello from a new French Sinclair computers collector :-)

Hi Guys. I started to read some documentations ("It's not rude to point" by David Denham and "The Pointer Environment Idiot's Guide" by Norman Dunbar) which answer lots of my early questions. Since I have an HxC drive that I can connect to my Tetroid card I wonder how I can feed ...

Re: Hello from a new French Sinclair computers collector :-)

Hi Dilwyn. Yes I had a look at the English book (actually a black binder) that come with the computer. For what I understood it mainly deals with the SuperBasic and the 4 microdrives office software that also comes the computer. Perhaps I missed the part about "hard drive" and "auto-s...
