I cant currently distribute an apple binary, but Im too cheap to pay for developer certificate
Same with QPC. I even remove the header again if the type is changed to 0.M68008 wrote:Btw, Q-emuLator only uses headers for files needing it (e.g. executables)
I didn't know you do that, too.and it also does some escaping of the file name to avoid forbidden names (e.g. CON on Windows) and characters. If anybody is interested, I can share the escaping algorithm.

Yes, these were implemented on actual requests from a customer a long time (>15 years) ago because he actually used weird filenames like these in his company's software.

Great to hear! IMO having more emulators use the same native format will simplify the life of users.
Btw, Q-emuLator only uses headers for files needing it (e.g. executables) and it also does some escaping of the file name to avoid forbidden names (e.g. CON on Windows) and characters. If anybody is interested, I can share the escaping algorithm.

Code: Select all
tk2_bin -> tk2_bin
<empty name> -> -noname-
CON -> -noascii-!CON
CONSOLE -> CONSOLE
one<newline>two -> -noascii-!one A!two (the A in the middle is the newline character)
// -> -noascii-2F 2F
<null character> -> -noascii-0
Ah right, I forgot about them. I do substitutions for those, too, but differently: ">" translates for example into Unicode symbol U+203A "Single Right-Pointing Angle Quotation Mark" which looks exactly like ">" but works in filenames My goal was for the names to be visually as close to the original as possible.M68008 wrote:Windows forbids a number of characters in file names: <>|":/\?*
How do I get sQLux to execute a QDOS executable file unzipped with qemi-unzip.
I made a DEVICE as qdos-like but the rxecutable file teturns a bad parameter when loaded with EX or EW
No problems, I just not get it to work.
I generally uncompress archive files to a QDOS environment, which preserves the executable header eithout messing about wilth the QDOS file header.
./x86_64/qem-unzip -d~/test "~/Downloads/flightdeck.zip"
# Example configuration
SYSROM = MIN198.rom
ROMIM = TK232.rom
RAMTOP = 4096
PRINT = lpr
CPU_HOG = 0
FAST_STARTUP = 1
DEVICE = FLP1,~/test/,qdos-like
WIN_SIZE = 2x
SPEED = 1.0
