Re: Image File Utilities

I'm curious to know why one would need a blank FLP image file. Why not just use a QXL.win file? Are these microdrive and floppy formats particular to just Qemulator and Qlay? I've used floppy image files, but these are direct copies of a floppy using 'dd'.

Re: QL Newbie from USA

> but I am located in Northern California

Well, that narrows it down a bit. Bay Area, Sacramento, or outside of either of these metro areas.

I'm in Alameda County and work in Santa Clara County.

Re: US/German serial and joystick pinouts...

The US QL used the same port as the Atari VCS (2600). I used the older Atari joysticks on the QL with no issue. Kempston never really made it to the US, so I don't know what it's format is like.

Re: Qxltool[s]

I've used qxltool in the past and have been bitten by a bad QXL.win file. I am looking forward to seeing this tool working and am willing to help test it. I have access to both 32- and 64-bit Linux systems to test with.

Re: What QL emulator do you recommend?

Jack, I recommend SMSQmulator, which is java-based and will work on a number of platforms. As for the Cut-n-Paste with Windows, no matter the emulator, it is the QL operating system that is not doing the paste because it does not support it. With SMSQ/E or using the Hot Keys system (which can be loa...

Re: SuperBASIC omission (bug?) in SMSQ/E?

It sounds like you want to take a file with SuperBasic statements that don't have line numbers and add line numbers. This (plus much more) can be done with Structured SuperBasic (SSB) a SuperBasic preprocessor I wrote some years ago. I can be found on Dilwyn's site: http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/program/i...

Re: QSpread 3.02 now released on GitHub

olifink,

Thanks that does help. I was really hoping for it to be a function, but the details was leading me more towards a form of clipboard for formulas.

Re: QSpread 3.02 now released on GitHub

Olifink,

Thanks,

Tim
