Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Would it be possible to allow keywords such as LIST etc to be recognised, to make programs be compatible with, say, QPC2 . I've looked further into this. The case of LIST and others has already been catered for. These type commands get the message of Warning..Procedure cannot be compiled. There is ...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Hi Steve, Yes, thanks for the idea. Keywords such as LIST, SAVE, LOAD, etc. only work in Basic - they won't work compiled. There are about a dozen or so of these keywords. I'll add them all to the list of prohibited names to be checked for. I note that "INSTR_CASE" also does not work in Tu...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Impressive! Still working on the issue with different output of V3.36 and V3.37. Thats to say, Im producing the problem and Martin has been trying to solve it! My biggest wish for a Qlib update is for a $30 char job name length! I would think that's possible. But you may have to have a special runt...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

Hi everyone, We now consider the next round of improvements, bug fixes, etc. Here is the list so far ... + Add a binary-chop method to detect_screen_limits, defined at line 32524.

Re: QLiberator decompiler

The last time I tried this I got ambiguous name errors for SCRXY and WINDSZ, and so could not even get any compilations. On one other earlier try, I did successfully get it to work, both for the _wrk file and also for the _sav file. The results were identical. I would guess that the problem might li...

Re: New QLiberator v3.37

a) Loading takes several seconds (about 5), the previous version was pretty much instant. Is that expected? I have noticed this long loading time myself. It seems that the larger screen sizes take a proportionately longer time for it to start up. I could be wrong, but my guess is that it's got some...
