Hi Marcel,

USE, PICK$ and REPLACE were all from Simon N Goodwin's DIY Toolkit. I don;t remember PURGE being a DIY command though, but with my memory, I wouldn't be surprised if it was.


Cheers,
Norm.

Christ, Norm, you just saved me a ton of time. While looking up these commands in the SBasic online manual I stumbled upon the more complex ones I struggled with in the QDesign extension and only then realized that they are based on the open source BGI package! I will still have to disassemble them because they are extended versions, but god this makes things sooo much easier. Thanks!

mk79 wrote:Again, thanks. I have found 2 curious things:

Code: Select all

17764    READ var05C8(1776,var02D8(var06F0))
The 1776 index is way out of bounds and suspiciously similar to the line number.

Code: Select all

17830  RETurn MK_LIL
All the parameters for MK_LIL are missing.

I had a little look last night.

For the RETurn MK_LIL problem, The decompiler finds a long parameter string and adds it to the MK_LIL, and then PRINT's it to my stack/pipe with PRINT#3,c$!p$. where c$ is the MK_LIL, and p$ is the parameter string. Only when the stack/pipe is read only the MK_LIL comes out.

If I change it to PRINT#3,c$:" ";p$ it then works OK. I'm guessing the ! does not just add them together with a space between the two strings and send them to the pipe, but the two strings are sent separately.

The 1776 in the READ is actually the variable reference 'var06F0' as 1776=$06F0. I had forgotten to convert it to hex and add the 'var'.

I'm not to sure how READ's into a array work exactly. I think the line should be something like 17764 READ var05C8(var02D8). I need to stare at it a bit longer, and think about it.

When I'm done, I will have to decompile all four programs again, and look to see if makes any changes to them.

OK, I think I have sorted out the 2 problems Marcel found. And done a bit of a rewrite of READ handling

Which has a knock on effect for the other programs
The following lines change in each program, you can just cut and paste them in

Very well, thanks! I had a first stab at FontEd and the code first failed in procFun17535. Interestingly this seems to be boilerplate QPtr code as I found the exact same function in the source code of another program (SoQLoban from Wolfgang). The first problem was that line 17765 must be deleted as it should have been replaced by 17764. And then the strange "-1" indexes in MK_LIL et al are apparently supposed to be "TO"s without further indexes to indicate the whole range, so the line should read

Code: Select all

17830 RETurn MK_LIL (var06E0,var06A8%(TO,0 TO 1),var06A8%(TO,2 TO 3),var06A8%(TO,4 TO 5),var0700$,var06A8%(TO,6),var0708$,var05C8(1),var05C8(2),var05C8(3))
After these fixes the program seems to work like the original :-o This is pretty cool, Martin, well done! I have attached a slightly refactored version of it. I'll probably not spend much more time on it, but I think it's pretty cool nonetheless.

I cant see a line 17765 in my fonted version. Apart from the qdesign program that I had to renumber. Generally speaking, any odd numbered lines, Are things that I have done during my initial tidy up.

I'm surprised there wasn't more problems that needed sorting out.

Oh, must have been one of my earlier tries then, sorry.

I think I have fixed the TO problem the Marcel had. The only one of the four Qdesign programs effected seems to be fonted

Copy and paste as before

Code: Select all

14252 var05E0 = MK_AOL (var0750,var05B0%( TO ,0 TO 1),var05D8$,var05B8%( TO ),var05C0$,var05C8(1),var05C8(2),var05C8(3))
17192 SPSET var0690,var0678,var0680,var0688,var0660$(0 TO var0670,1 TO var0668)
17830 RETurn MK_LIL (var06E0,var06A8%( TO ,0 TO 1),var06A8%( TO ,2 TO 3),var06A8%( TO ,4 TO 5),var0700$,var06A8%( TO ,6),var0708$,var05C8(1),var05C8(2),var05C8(3))
18588 RETurn MK_IOL (var06A8%( TO ,0 TO 1),var06A8%( TO ,2 TO 3),var05C8(0),var06A8%( TO ,4),var0708$,var05C8(1),var05C8(2),var05C8(3))


And here's the latest decompiler.

I think it's now time for me to shut down for Christmas.
