Re: QL Pawn in web browser

It works, just read carefully the following sentence from the web page...and look, where I have placed the pointer: "Note:If the emulation does not respond to the F1/F2 key press on start, you need to focus the window. Click somewhere into the inner frame close to the border." 2020-07-31 1...

But the Miracle HD always starts first (BOOT file permitted), even if there is a disk in a connected Disk I/F.

Re: Are there directory devices with a name longer than 3 letters

As the Subject aks: Are their any directory devices which have a name with more than 3 characters (without the trailing digit and underscore) or can a device be defined (with e.g. FLP_USE) with a longer name than 3 characters. Example is a name like "HDSK" possible? The known devices are ...

Re: Development Systems and Created Code (reentrant, ROMable, ...)

This is the reason, why I use SEDIT as my editor for simple things (like viewing files), cause as a QLiberated program it's reentrant an I can run many instances without eating up memory in the TPA. Nice to read :) . I do not know, why programs make an effort to use several files, they simply shoul...

Re: Psion Chess under uQLx

Yes, I can read all the ASCII included in the Help pages (2 pages in total). I can use the space bar to switch between the 2 pages. Pressing any other key returns to the game board. No ;-) I meant you can read it in the code (loading the file in an editor). Of course you can read it after execution.

Re: Psion Chess under uQLx

Interesting to see, that you can read all the ASCII incl. the Help pages in the code as clear text, if loaded in an Editor. The original Chess (on MDV) has all ASCII encrypted, So Jochen Hassler seem to have saved it from memory after the CALL of the program then made it an executable.

I have read that elsewhere long years ago, so I think, you are quite right.
