Re: C++

Hi, I agree ! Starting to program with Fortran 2 then Fortran 4 and Fortran 77, and also with several Basic dialects, when in the meantime I discovered C (and Forth), I found that I had the right powerful tools - and even before C++, on the machines that I used professionnaly (that were all more or ...

Re: First attempts to boot my Tetroid GIRL

Hi, Happy new QL year to all ! My Tetroid QL(JM!) stays with me in the Alps till Easters (my winter quarters over Bourg-Saint-Maurice). And he found here three new CF cards (that were used with my first digital Canon : two 512Mb cards and one of 1Gb). So, I decided to try to fit them to my Tetroid c...

Re: QLAN-USB Adapter - working prototype...

Hi Martyn ! With your latest posts on this thread, I just became aware that you were aiming at a similar goal as I was : I use my QLs with a LCD screen (SCART input) on which I also piggybacked a Raspberry Pi (HDMI input) and I was recently wondering if I could not take advantage of this proximity t...

Re: First attempts to boot my Tetroid GIRL

Thank you very much ! This is actually what I noticed already happening whith 'EXISTS' ? OK, this seems another good reason for my "modular" booting ! My will to stay with JM is of same nature as photographying B&W on film and developping - printing in a wet laboratory : (nostalgic- ma...

Re: First attempts to boot my Tetroid GIRL

My GIRL does not like JM, she prefers JS ! As I told, I have two QLs, the one bought end 1984 with a JM rom and the second bought in 1986 with a JS rom. I always used both with my Sandy SuperQboard without problems. First, I tried my Tetroid card with my JS machine, and after setting-up all the part...

Re: First attempts to boot my Tetroid GIRL

I am curious to have a look at your code. The difference seems to be that I don't write and read (and interpret ?) notes between the boots, I simply might MRUN other OPTIONS (evenyually with other MERGEs) adding and replacing lines in the BOOT, and that line 32700 ensures that what must be RUN only ...

First attempts to boot my Tetroid GIRL

Hi all ! At the beginning, there was the QL (128k,2 120k MDVs). Then, the boot files were only to load one program from an mdv. After, I got a SuperQboard (with 512K more RAM, TK2 and 2 720k FLPs – and soon a mouse). Thus I could boot a floppy with several tools (for inst. the four Psion programs, C...

Re: VGA BOX

Hi all, This is my SCART cable, I built two of them (for both my original QLs) and they work well (on ancient TVs and also on all my recent flat-screen TVs). qltosc10.jpg Two things to be noted : 1/ you need a 5v on some pins of the SCART. I picked it inside the QLs and output it on a supplementary ...

Re: Overview of QL SD / CF Solutions

Hi all, I told you already when I joined this forum that I have 2 QLs (one that I bought end 1984 - when they first arrived in France - with a JM ROM, and the second - for spare, when Sinclair sold out the last ones - with a JS ROM. Hardware.jpg To the first one I soon added a Sandy SuperQboard - la...

Hi ! this is mine... Click ! May the FORTH be with you !
