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 (https://github.com/SinclairQL/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...

Re: John Conway: Game Over

Tofro, I've got around to trying to use WOPEN to create a console window (wopen(con1,512,256,0,0). I used it at the start of my program and all input and output is using con1. The first time I compiled and ran, I got "Error F - no reset". So I added a reset to con1 and then I got "Err...

Re: How to run Prospero Fortran on Qemulator version 3.3

I was able to run ProFortran on Q-emualtor under Wine on Linux. I tried ProPascal on QPCII (under Wine) and SMSQMulator and it failed on both. It seemed to work but compiling did nothing and at one point both emulators hung. If ProFortran will run on sQLux, it will run with uQLx, I just happened to ...
