Evening Daniel,

Welcome back to the QL.

I replied to Dilwyn earlier on this. I realise my mistake, as usual, only when 
my post went public. Sigh! No worries!


Cheers,
Norm.

Indeed Dilwyn, apologies, I was wondering about you having said it! However, 
the problem is simply my own apparent inability to read properly! 

Cheers,
Norm.

[Ql-Users] For 1 person only - or maybe just 2!

2017-08-28 Thread Geoff Wicks via Ql-Users


I have always said that one of the strengths of the QL is that it caters 
for minorities.


For the one person - or maybe two people who are interested - the 2017 
version of my UK General Election analysis program is now available on 
the downloads page of my website.


www.gwicks.net/justwords.htm

I am making some changes to the dictionaries page of the site. Currently 
I am getting about 1,500 hits a month on the page and I have a feeling 
they are not QL-ers. The search engines have discovered me and I have 
become an established word list download site.


In the circumstances I am currently modifying the plain text lists from 
the QL to the PC character set,


Best wishes,


Geoff

Err, except it wasn't me wot wrote that, Norman!!!

Dilwyn asked: "...has huge problems with local variables, which seem
to lose their names when out of scope. If anyone knows how to reconnect
local variables to their names when they are out of scope, please let me
know. "


Could you explain, for the old and infirm (me), how you mean "goes out of 
scope", please?


I'm obviously not understanding what you wrote because a variable that goes 
out of scope, in any language, will become undefined, or completely missing, 
surely? Do any value it had, will be 'lost'.


Sorry if I'm being particularly thick this morning!

Hi Norman,

I (apparently) wrote this about 20 years ago. This has reminded me that the
idea was to write some kind of debugger for superbasic, but I really don't
remember how it worked.

You're right of course about local variables. Perhaps my experience with
programming since I wrote this will enable me to overcome the problems that
I was obviously having then.

Rgds,

Daniel
