Re: Q68 Ethernet

A big problem with SLIP is lack of Windows support. At least I never found a solution. SLIP would more or less restrict the other end to Linux/Unix. Yes, there doesn't seem to be one, at least not for relatively recent Windows or MacOS X versions. And it's highly unlikely that someone will provide ...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Kickstarter 2 just launched

In case anyone here missed out last time and wanted one: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spectrumnext/zx-spectrum-next-issue-2?ref=user_menu Wonder if a QL core on this bad boy would make the ultimate QL - it already has almost the same keyboard (although much better so I hear)! I doubt there ...

Re: EJC (C-Compiler) experiments

It's the compiler crashing with an "internal error". I didn't use any libraries or startup code from C68 when I tried.

Re: EJC (C-Compiler) experiments

IF ALL ELSE FAILS, READ THE MANUAL! Shame on YOU! No one answered me, that C68 is capable of creating reentrant code: You might want to read back a few pages where I told you it can. The problem is simply that the compiler tends to imtermittently crash when using this option. I couldn't make it run...

Re: Newbie: Where to start to learn QL assembly language?

BTW, there is a YouTuber who's channel focuses on teaching assembly and one of the platforms is the QL, Check it out...here is his latest video porting YQuest3 onto the QL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae3fS1znCh8 I tend to watch his videos occasionally, but he does stuff I wouldn't necessarily ...

Re: Newbie: Where to start to learn QL assembly language?

You could also try the Assembler Workbench http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/asm/talentaw22.zip . This is a combined assembler and machine code monitor. It does not have a lot of fancy features in the assembler, that the more professional ones do. It's the one I've used mainly. I was thinking about that, but...

Re: QSEND inter-job signaling system

On a side note, how do you do string concatenation in SuperBASIC? It's different from what I thought (i.e. a$= "a" + "b" didn't work). it's cat$ = a$ & b$ Where the "summands" may be either string or numeric variables. (If a summand is numeric, SuperBASIC will auto...

Re: QSEND inter-job signaling system

Turbo Toolkit has a "TYPE_IN" command that can put characters into the input queue of the current foreground job. That's probably the easiest way to remote control other applications. In order to make another job the current foreground job, you either have to make it the last one EXECed (t...

Re: Newbie: Where to start to learn QL assembly language?

Not QL-specific, but very, very helpful for learning: You could have a look at Easy68k http://www.easy68k.com/moreinfo.htm This is a 68k assembler, linker and symbolic debugger, embedded in a 68k emulation environment for Windows. Developed especially for the beginner, helping students to explore 68...
