Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

Also, there's a toolkit called Beuletools. It seems to have a lot of commands for setting up Epson (?) printers and one of the commands much cross referenced is ESC. Unfortunately, ESC is not mentioned anywhere. Does anyone have details of this command that you can send me, I'll do the necessary - ...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

I'm not sure if EasyPtr (and QPTR) should actually go into the S*BASIC reference manual - They have (pretty good) manuals of their own and I somehow feel a full introduction into PTR programming might be well beyond the scope of the S*BASIc manual. Im aware of your point , Tobias. I just think that...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

⋅  Make sure that the toolkit names in the individual keyword pages are standardised. We have, for example, 'Tiny Toolkit', 'TinyToolkit' and 'Qview TinyToolkit' - presumably all for the same toolkit? I've assumed this to be the case in the Toolkits page, and merges them all under TinyToo...

Re: SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual Online

However, because I've now got things set up with each keyword in it's own file, that constitutes a page, and while the page loads far quicker now - there's much less to load - browsing or scrolling around the other keywords is not as easy. However, to my mind, it's better and more efficient - I'm l...

Re: SuperToolkit II: PARUSE(name) - is it a bug or feature?

BTW: These functions are mighty ones, as they allow at least a rudimentary "Reflection" as in more modern languages like Java, C# and Python. Warning: Although the type of the formal vars should be ignored and the type of the calling parameters used, this is not always the case with PARTY...

Re: SuperToolkit II: PARUSE(name) - is it a bug or feature?

If you look at the best manual (SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual) you will see that this was an error in the Toolkit II manual from years ago -

Omega by Caret Computers / Caret Limited

Thanks to Martin's superb Supercharge / Turbo decompiler, we have now managed to decompile the program Omega and found that the "bug" whereby the game crashed as soon as you shot something, would appear to be a form of copy protection. At least the de-compiler allowed us to discover how to...

Re: Recreating/preserving Sinclair box packages

Excellent - these would look great added to the QL Wiki as replacements for the existing packaging photos - most of the images on there were ones I scanned in and edited in Paint
