Re: CSM 1.22

CSM is for interprocess communications (sort of like RPC's). A program is a server and can be controlled by a client program sending commands.

I did not see any attached examples. Were you referring to the examples that came with CSM?

Re: C68 out of memory -help

I've not used C68_Menu, so I don't know if it has any issues. To eliminate it as a source, please use C68 from the command line and see if you get the same compile error.

BTW, you don't need math_h or time_h for this simple program.

Re: RCS (revision control system)

What you need is a copy of "Applying RCS and SCCS" by Bolinger & Bronson from O'Reilly & Assoc. The edition I have has the pink spine and two raccoons on the front. Copyright is 1995. You should be able to find copies online (I get most of my older books on Amazon). The book is 500...

Re: How to enlarge the Emacs editor window under uQLx emulator

> Now looking at how to set up the environment variables EMACS_ROWS and EMACS_COLS permanently. Just add those ENV commands to your normal boot program. There is also an emacs_rc configuration file. It should have those settings. Just edit it. MicroEmacs will always check the emacs_rc on start up to...

Re: Moire (aka bouncing lines)

I was able to compile it and it ran fine. The problem might be Qlay. I don't think it was ever a fully stable emulator.

I'm attaching the compiled version that I did (with Turbo 5.07).

Re: sQLux Foibles

I've got sQLux installed on a little netbook ( Intel Atom @ 1.44 Ghz) and it runs just fine. I thought it was an under powered system. I guess the PI is really under powered.

Re: How to uQLx on RPi

The most recent version of uQLx is sQLux ( The most recent update was about 3 months ago. It does require SDL2 so I don't know if that is an issue on the Pi. I'm running sQLux on my main laptop and on a netbook and it runs just fine. If you want to run QLirc2, th...

Re: Emacs Programming

I don't know a way of using some Things from MicroEmacs. There is a way of using MicroEmacs and SSB so that, from within MicroEmacs, you can fire off SSB and then a compiler. SSBGO is an executable that can be executed from MicroEmacs. It runs the code through SSB, loads it into SuperBasic, checks f...

Re: QL soundcard+tracker???

There was a MIDI interface that Miracle did. Al Boehm of NESQLUG wrote some articles about it for QL Today. Looking on Dilwyn's page, there is a tracker package written for that MIDI interface by Dan Gaffey. There is even a download for the source code. Not sure how easy it would be to convert the t...
