Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Peter If Wolfgang has no better idea, and you don't find that approach too clumsy anyway, I could also have quick look into writing such a server at least for Linux and Windoze. Would it be better to define a packet format, or just go byte-by-byte? I reckon a byte for byte approach would be prefe...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Peter Maybe your driver inside the emulator could access a network server (on the host) by UDP or TCP, which then handles the serial port? Not very nice to need an extra server though. That would be trivial enough form within the code written - to open a UDP socket instead of the SER device - but...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

OK, so quite possibly...

If uQLX (or QPC on WINE) is run on the rPi AND if there is a 'USB virtual COM Port' driver available for the rPi AND once I've completed the fully OS integrated version (rather than just the SBASIC app available today), then this could be an option :-)

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Pete! Possibly - perhaps you could expand your description of the problem you're trying to solve? To hazard a first guess, if the current roadblock is being able to access the files (applications?) on an unexpanded QL due to lack of local modern storage, then yes - if you arrange for the library ...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi again Peter - I missed one of your earlier questions... By the way, do you have any plans to make the adapter collaborate with SMSQmulator, which has no direct support for serial ports? My aim has always been to make the solution as universally applicable as feasible, so once I've gotten a workin...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi folks - thanks for the encouraging words :-) By the way, what is the reason for the 10K resistor? Hi Peter! - That was an early - and naive - decision when I wasn't yet familiar with the microcontroller and wasn't sure about the effect of any input impedance in to the IO pin. It just worked, so I...

I am pleased to announce an early release of the QLAN to USB Bridge 'QLUB' Adapter - as a belated Christmas present to anyone patiently following this project since my first announcement, way back when... Whilst some way off being a finished product, with a couple of months of software ...

Just to say that I don't seem to have received today's Zoom meeting link/password as yet.
