Maybe it would be better to add Q40/Q60 mode to QPC2, a feature of more general use?
QLPUI was ported/written by me, based on work from Doug Eleveld. I was looking for highcolor under QDOS/Minerva, where the Pointer Environment does not support it. Because QLPUI replaces the Pointer Environment, it has to include low-level drivers for hardware, at this time only for Q40/Q60. E.g. the serial mouse, which Q-Emulator also supports. It should be easy to get it running on the Q68, which also has the Q40/Q60 modes.
The executable on the Q-Emulator page is just a demo, not showing more interesting stuff I wrote for QLPUI later on. It surprised me that the demo appeared there.
I did not release QLPUI, because all programs using QLPUI still had to be linked together into one executable at the time.
And the programs had to be written in C language, no BASIC support. I did not find the time to improve that.
Is QLPUI still of interest, now that SMSQ/E has become free software? If yes, why?
