SM71,

Check out SMSQzine #7 for some working examples of curses. The source files are in the accompanying .zip file. SMSQzine can be found on my website:

Re: Happy Birthday!

The US has done MM/DD/YY because the normal way of writing a date is: January 25, 2000 With that layout, when moving to all numbers, it stayed the same. In the Military, it is similar to Europe, in that is DD/MM/YY, but never in just numbers: 25 Jan 2000 The month is always in three letters. Just a ...

Re: QL / PASCAL

A few issues ago with SMSQzine, I did a review of both Computer One and Prospero Pascal. Computer One is only for QDOS (UQLX or Q-emulator) but Prospero will work with SMSQ/E. Again, details are in SMSQzine. When they were both release I was keen to use them. I had used Metacomco Pascal in college. ...

Re: People's opinions on the best free software

It's hard to say what the best free software is, esp. not knowing what you want to get done.

For editors:
QED2
MicroEmacs

For compilers:
Turbo
C68

For Office Suite:
Xchange

For Start Button:
Qasqade

I'm sure there are many others that other people use on a regular basis.

Re: Issue Tx boards discussions

On the US QL, both serial 1 and serial 2 were male connectors. Serial 1 was DTE and serial 2 was DCE. All this means is that pins 2 and 3 were swapped. For compatibility reasons, I think this should be the same on any new boards. If someone needs serial 2 to be DTE, a simple serial jumper adapter ca...

Re: QPAC2, GWASS, SMSQ or QD - eRant!

Norm, It's sounding like QD is reverting to an older version of the file. Have you checked the file on disk and compared it with what is in QD? You can also try a different editor and see if the behavior changes. I don't think there is a way to do a checksum withing QD to verify that no changes were...

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Sorry for taking so long to notice your update. I just checked ZXzine #1 and it downloaded fine for me. I'm using FireFox. I just clicked on the link and viewed it in Firefox.

Re: Hello from Venice, Florida

Glad to see more US QLers after many years of seeing them disappear. I'm on the West Coast (SF Bay Area) and have been active in the US QL community since I got my QL in April 1986.

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Martin,

Were you able to download zip #5? Is the zip having issues opening? I did test the original zips to make sure they were all different and able to open.
