Greetings everyone. After a delay of a year and a bit, Issue 8 of the irregular eMagazine on QL Assembly Language is now available for download.

This (exciting?) edition covers:
  • Some more UTF8 stuff -- Wolfgang Lenerz has suggested some improvements to the code in Issue 7, and this has been implemented.
  • Reversing the bits in a register.
  • Finding the next power of two.
  • Some stuff on randomisation and generating random integers.

The download is at https://github.com/NormanDunbar/QLAssem ... ag/Issue_8.


Enjoy.


Cheers,
Norm.

Hi Norm,

Nice magazine, came at the right time, as my interest was waning a little.

Thanks Derek.

Hopefully, the next issue will be a bit sooner! If I can figure out stuff to write about that is. All hints gratefully received everyone!


Cheers,
Norm.

B*gger, b*gger, b*gger!

It comes to mind that in one of the comments, in one of the code sections, in Issue 8, there is a glaring bug. The comment describes an operation but the comment is wrong. Can you spot the problem?

Cheers,
Norm.
