Re: Forth

OK I stop talking HP67 or HP41 and RPN : Forth is not at all about RPN :!: Forth is a virtual machine for interactive use with 2 stacks instead of one and 2 interpreters instead of one :?: When you type in a word Forth looks for it in a list called its "dictionnary" When you type in a sent...

Re: Forth

Hi, "Me too" was locked to RPN by the little HP calculator, but I didn't have the HP41, but its elder HP67. Thus FORTH. One program that I did on this machine (and that used its whole program memory) was to compute the "cross-sectionnal charasteristics of beams" of any complex sh...

Re: Forth

Hi, I discovered FORTH on my ZX81. But it was rather unusable. Then, for my QL, one of my first moves was the acquisition of ComputerOne FORTH. This was a good move, indeed, because on an unexpanded 128K machine with fragile microdrives, it was actually IMO the only alternative to SuperBasic : Its &...

Re: Covid19

Hi all, Here in France we were insulated very fast without notice, and thus blocked in my ski resort, I may not go back to my home in Paris soon. Unluck : The weather is very nice, we still have a lot of snow, but I cannot go skiing (am not even allowed to) Luck : One of my QLs is here with me, and ...

Re: Announcement - new QL Interface

Hi ! After restoring (and saving from DISASTER !) my 8Gb CF chip like I tell here : https://qlforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3124&start=20#p32391 I saw this post about a QL/E image directly loadable on a 1Gb CF for Tetroid, and decided to try it. I first checked for the geometry of the imag...

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

OOOPS ! Thanks pointing it ; corrected !
Yes, my definitive partitionning of the 8Gb CF is :
24 40Mb partitions with 2Kb blocks (thus 82Kb FATs) and
7 960Mb partitions with 32Kb blocks (thus 128Kb FATs) and
1 little partition of 5Mb to use the eleven remaining tracks.

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

DISASTER ! When I prepared the PDF document summing up my experiences with the HABI image files manager, I wanted to re-check the error messages that I got when trying to restore an image file onto a different CF chip. As I have 2 512Mb chips (one with 993 tracks and one with 1010 tracks), one 1Gb c...
