Solved: QPC2/SMSQ: Isn'nt there no more EDIT command?

Postby ql_freak » Tue Nov 22, 2016 12:30 am

Is there no EDIT command in SBASIC which allows (as on an original QL) to edit a line in channel #0 of the SuperBASIC Interpreter.

If I enter EDIT or EDIT linenumber, the TK2-Screen-Editor is started.

How can I edit a line in channel #0, so that I can make a command from a S(uper)BASIC line?

I have a command in my boot file (open#3,'CON_512x256a50x308') to edit my boot file in a large window. But when my boot file fails, this statement will not be executed. On a normal QL I would use EDIT line_number_of_the_open_statement and then (the statement is editable in channel#0 of SuperBASIC) delete the line number and can execute it as a command.

I found no way, to do this in SMSQ on QPC2.

EDIT:
I have found the trick:

EDIT line_number

then press F10
and afterwards ESC to leave the TK2-Screen Editor
The line is stuffed into the Hotkey Stuffer buffer without the line number ;-))) and you simply can press the normal:

ALT+SPACE

to stuff it into channel#0 :-)

F10 within the ED editor copies the current line into the hotkey buffer. You can then paste it into #0 by using Alt+Enter.

Hello mk97,

I was too late ;-) But thank you.

There are plenty of useful hints and tips on the ED command in the SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual
