[Ql-Users] SBASIC extras

2007-08-11 Thread Dilwyn Jones
Looking at a list of SBASIC extensions created with an EXTRAS command, 
there are 3 extensions I noticed that I don't know what they do. Not 
in my (admittedly old) manual. Anyone know?

CHK_HEAP  (Some form of heap check suggested by the name)

HOME_CSET (presumably something to do with Home Thing)

PAR_WAIT  (presumably something to do with parallel port)

Part of SMSQ/E, documented in extras_new_home_info_txt in the SMSQ/E 
source files:

Set the current directory for the job. The directory must the a valid 
directory.


CHK_HEAP

Part of SMSQ/E, documented in QPC_Keywords and possibly elsewhere:

This enables debugging routines in the SBASIC core for SBASIC 
development and should not be used by any users.

[Ql-Users] Editor 3.04

2007-08-11 Thread David Tubbs
Pleased I am to have recently got the modern version (courtesy of Rich Mellor
who helped me pass the UNZIP) I am finding a couple of problems - features 
or bugs.

I am using Qemulator, and my devices are just MSDOS/Windows directories.
While editing an existing file, then wishing to save to the same device I 
get the message that there is no room. but saving to ramdisk and using QRAM 
to put it where I want is OK.

The RU command (read unformatted - binary) is missing, and I lauded it only 
a short while ago.
Discovered as I wanted to change default devices in QRAM, just like 
Dilwyn's progeamme, so I had to use a Window's Hex Editor.

I am disappointed it is not welcoming of the mouse.
