Re: [Ql-Users] TYPE_IN

2017-10-04 Thread Lee Privett via Ql-Users
Thanks guys and especially to Michael, and to his last few questions.
Firstly I placed the query (cut down) to avoid a lengthy and possibly
boring explanation
I am periodically (while I can) in pre-production of a lengthy project that
I have dabbled in over the last two years and as I think about aspects of
the project, mini projects pop into mind. These result in functions or
procedures that I test out and if useful, I publish in QUANTA.

One such project is so large that the programming for it has to be fairly
rigorously planned out, which amongst other things includes plenty of REM
statements.
So I am writing a procedure called AutoREM which asks two questions, what
line to start at (An) and what it is all about (Final$), it will then
create REM statements and eventually DEF PROC and END PROC lines
automatically, all within the SMSQ/e environment. Specifically at the
moment QPC2. Although not compiled a version of this will be used in the
"big project" which will be.

I hope that satisfies your intrigueness (not a real word) Michael.

Yes the string is about 60 characters long which is probably why it fails
on the third TYPE_IN

tried using Pause to no effect :(

[Ql-Users] TYPE_IN

2017-09-30 Thread Lee Privett via Ql-Users
Fellow QL'ers

I have a slight problem with TYPE_IN

Using it to put some commands in #0, works well in an instance until I
reach what appears to be a maximum set of characters, where the QL just
hangs.

e.g.

1920  TYPE_IN An&":"$(10)
1930  TYPE_IN (An+1)$$(10)
1932  TYPE_IN (An+2)$$(10)
1940  TYPE_IN (An+3)$$(10)


An is an integer
Final$ is just text
Top$ is a string of asterisks

it locks up displaying halfway through 1940

Is there a buffer I can clear after using TYPE_IN?

or can I increase the length of the number of characters TYPE_IN can use?

Many thanks in anticipation

Re: [Ql-Users] TURBO and testing it exists

2017-08-17 Thread Lee Privett via Ql-Users
Perhaps I should clarify this a little further.

Using Q-emuLator, my boot first loads SMSQ_QEM and restarts with the same
boot, I will always do this or use QPC2, I am not really looking for a BBQL
solution as it is development for other things.

Where this

[code]IF VER$<>"HBA" THEN
   LRESPR "WIN8_SMSQ_QEM"
END IF[/code]

loads SMSQ and fails the second time around (as designed, so all good) as
the same boot loads again, I then load (still in the same boot) the
TURBO_SMS_CODE appropriate for SMSQ based system.

This is all fine, however, I am developing the boot for different setups
and change them a lot depending on what project I decide to work on.

This means re-running the boot several times in the one session to test
what I am trying to do and I don't want to keep using up space re-LRESPR
the TURBO toolkit.
Using another toolkit to test for the existence of a keyword in the TURBO
toolkit would then mean using another method to test for that additional
Toolkit, a catch 22.

So I may try the WHEN_ERR method as soon as I find the documentation on it.

[Ql-Users] TURBO and testing it exists

2017-08-17 Thread Lee Privett via Ql-Users
I originally posted this on the forum:

Hi community, I have searched for this on the forum but cannot find an
entry but I am sure this has been asked before.

I currently test for the presence of the HBA ROM in a boot program using
VER$ and would like to test for other toolkits, specifically the TURBO
toolkit. Is there a way to do this automatically in a boot so that when
subsequent runs of the boot it is not loaded again in one session?

e.g. for the HBA version I use:

Code: Select all 
IF VER$<>"HBA" THEN
   LRESPR "WIN8_SMSQ_QEM"
END IF


I feel there must be a way to test for TURBO toolkit, any ideas?

A reply from Derek suggested  the following:

There is a keyword: TK_VER$, but only returns the version of Turbo Toolkit,
which is the same for the SMS and QDOS versions.

A simple way would be to add "SMS" in the version number. Which would mean
a new version of Turbo Toolkit.

The SMS version calls the SMSQ/E extended traps, where the QDOS does not,
so maybe a test for SMSQ/E extended traps is the way, but I would favour
the about alteration to TK_VER$.

George Gwilt used to maintain Turbo and maybe the Toolkit. I think this
message needs to be posted in the QL-USERS mailing list, George Gwilt reads
that list.

Any views at all?
