Re: Switch off Pointer Toolkit

Hi, It is always better to write your own boot file. Personally I would not use a boot file written by someone else. Why are you not using Minerva, which would allow multi tasking Superbasic?

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Hi Tim,

In SMSQzine #7 page 6, you talk about a programme called "qlzip" to add the XTC68 compiled files to a zip archive and add the dataspace into the header.

I do seem be able to find this programme, can you tell me where it available for download.

Re: Get info when QL is ready with screen redrawing?

Hi, In the 1990s, I wrote some extensions to copy screen 0 to screen 1 or screen 1 to screen 0. Using the Minerva fast copy routine, detailed in the Minerva manual.
