QPC2

I hear there is a new update in the air - sounds very exciting. We have got something to look forward to. The current version v4.05 is already quite something - it is very good indeed. Are we allowed to suggest possible additions? On the bottom left of the keyboard, there is the \ key. When pressed ...

Re: Check if BASIC is running

I now don't think that the CHBASE(0,0) line is really necessary - it can be deleted.
It's all to do with finding out if it's stopped.
If it's not stopped, then it must be running.

Re: Check if BASIC is running

Current Line number executing ... BASIC_W%(104) Continue Line number ... BASIC_W%(146) Break - whether Ctrl-Space was pressed - BASIC_B%(143) Best of luck with this. I got the above information from Jan Jones's QL SuperBASIC The Definitive Handbook These will work with QDOS - but not necessarily wit...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

I found this in turbos3_txt ... But the presence of the command "TURBO_ref" in a program to be compiled will cause TURBO to arrange to send all simple string parameters by reference. Since this will work only if the operating system is SMSQ/E such compiled programs will halt immediately wi...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

I have managed to get this to work with Qemulator. This is how .. Thank you EmmBee - very interesting solution. I will read the Tubo manual to get a better understanding of Turbo_V But one thing seems strange - I can create subdirectories in QEmulator (but I use the drive mapped to a QXL.WIN file) ...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Using QemuLator without p/e, I can call up QLiberator to compile a program. QLiberator initially outlines a text window and there is no flashing cursor visible. I can press Control-Space, and then Control-C. The Basic cursor now flashes in #0, and QLiberator responds by removing the outline and disp...

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

I've tested this out with QPC2, and your right - it does work. Control-C works as intended even without an enabled cursor - I am surprised.
I have been mistaken - sorry!

Re: QLCOMMANDER - testers and help needed

Yes, I agree, that should do the trick. I've done a search and what you say is documented under TURBO_ref in both turbotk_txt and also Qhelp from RWAP. Talking about "GET", I notice you have defined a function, "getKey$(c%), where this is the only place in your program where a cursor ...
