Added Hyper Help for BASIC (and question).

Postby Chr$ » Fri Jul 17, 2020 5:31 pm

I've just added a wiki page for Hyper Help for BASIC:

https://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?i ... _for_basic

I haven't explored properly yet, but it looks like this was eventually incorporated into QD?


Collector of QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't really understand how they work!
Original QL's: many (plus quite a bit of other old stuff and 170+ original software titles)
Custom XT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
QXLII card installed in a PC
Q40 and Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

Hi Chr$,

Hyperhelp is a help system for programming in BASIC or assembler.

Please the QD2018 manual for more info.

QD needs to be resident and when a basjc programme is loaded , pressing F1 or Help over a keyword will load the basic syntax in a separate QD.

This assumes the HyperHelp system us configured in QD.

This is included with Q68.


Regards,

Derek

Thanks Derek, I'll play around with that tomorrow. I should have done so before adding the page but only discovered it was part of QD while researching background info - I'm no whizz, but anything I put online I like to ensure is accurate.
