Re: Sinclair QL (cross) development and emulation questions

The debugger is a separate component I wrote as a Windows DLL and the UI uses Win32 API calls. It didn't seem worth porting it as I don't know of anybody other than me using it. I recently registered Q-emuLator for macOS, I'm working on Free Pascal, and I'd love to have any sort of debugger in it o...

Re: QL / PASCAL

Norman, the FPC_patch.8.zip you attached only contains a 0 bytes file. Is this intentional?

Re: QL / PASCAL

@NormanDunbar
I merged your sysutils patch in r49306. Good job.

The patch you provided also contains the mt_inf() signature change, which I still ignored, for the reasons I explained earlier. ;)

Re: QL / PASCAL

Everything built with only the usual warning messages.

So, I flipped the switch, and now, and after r49296, FPC now indeed needs vlink 0.16h. Additionally, I fixed the linker warning in r49295.

Re: QL / PASCAL

In the process of rebuilding the cross compiler/rtl/ql units now.

Sorry, that was a bit premature, I haven't changed anything in FPC yet, precisely to give people time to update their vlink. :) I will do it in the next few days. Just for clarification.

Re: QL / PASCAL

More heads up: yesterday Frank Wille released vlink 0.16h which contains the QL target, Free Pascal will need at least this version real soon now , so please update your vlink builds. I have already updated the QL page on the Free Pascal wiki to signal this version or newer is now required. Probably...

Re: QL / PASCAL

In case anyone is thinking of having a bash at writing the SYSUTILS.PP functions (in rtl/sinclairql) then I'm already in there messing about. :D I've added code to make the following work, hopefully, and I'll be testing shortly: (...) Once tested, I'll post a patch file, as usual. Sounds great. The...

Re: QL / PASCAL

Oh, and one slightly offtopic news I forgot, whoever is interested to work on VBCC for the QL, I mentioned this to Frank Wille and they should contact him directly. He said to me that access to vclib source is possible for serious contenders. It just needs a startup code (feel free to reuse my code ...

Re: QL / PASCAL

Uh, that's a lot of info to process, thanks all three of you for the answers, I'll just try to answer the few, randomly, which I have an answer for currently. :) Most executables either have no extension at all or "_exe". But in a foreign land one should obey foreign customs, so ".exe...

Re: QL / PASCAL

Sure, patches here are totally welcome as in the previous format. Few other questions: - 1., the compiler now generates executable files with the .exe extension. However, I think this isn't a QL custom? As you even need to put the binary name into quotation marks (like "win1_hello.exe") in...
