Re: PLATOTERM 0.1 smoke test for Sinclair QL released

It is currently hard-configured for SER1 (this is a smoke test build), if you want SER2, you'll need to change and compile (it builds with XTC68)

I don't understand, from what I see, ser1 and ser2 literally are two of the same connector?

Re: PLATOTERM 0.1 smoke test for Sinclair QL released

Yes, I have a fork of tcpser that fixes a telnet IAC issue:
https://github.com/tschak909/tcpser

and I run it with:

Code: Select all

tcpser -d /dev/ttyS1 -s 9600 -i "&K3"


&K3 enables RTS/CTS handshaking, which you REALLY WANT.

PLATOTERM 0.1 smoke test for Sinclair QL released

For those crazy enough to test, here is a smoke test release of PLATOTERM for the Sinclair QL, version 0.1. It is still very much under construction, but if you have real hardware, and a wifi modem connected to your SER1, please test, and let me know how it goes, file an issue, etc. I have a binary ...

pixel addressable graphics lib for C68?

Would give ANYTHING for a pixel-addressable graphics lib for C68...the QDOS traps are ridiculously slow!

Re: scanning the keyboard?

Oddly enough, I only get some keys back with io_fbyte (The window is a con), keys like backspace seem to emit 0xfff

(but I was able to get them with getchar(), but this adds a whole chunk of posix compatibility that I do not want, bigger bin for no good reason.)

scanning the keyboard?

I'm noticing that the keys that I get back are ASCII encoded. This is good, except for when I need to do certain key combinations that conflict with standard ASCII conventions, an example of this is CTRL-H, which is nominally mapped to back-space. On other platforms, to deal with this, I use the ASC...

Re: Porting PLATOTERM to the QL as a QDOS app.

call to sd_fount() doesn't seem to make a difference, am defining the font here: https://github.com/tschak909/platotermql/blob/master/src/font.h and calling it here: https://github.com/tschak909/platotermql/blob/master/src/screen.c#L169 Not getting an error code back, but it's also not changing the ...

Anybody have a flood/seed fill routine?

Does anyone have an arbitrary seed fill routine? I can write one, but am wondering if somebody has already optimized one for QDOS's relative graphics subsystem.

Re: Porting PLATOTERM to the QL as a QDOS app.

And by removing the io_pend() calls for keyboard and serial i/o, and depending on a zero time-out to simply return a NC, I am able to get the buffer to behave as expected, and am now able to successfully connect into IRATA.ONLINE, without any hiccups, at 9600 baud in Norma QL speed (using RTS/CTS), ...
