Wow, I took that site down about 10 years ago... I didn't remember there
was so much on it.

It makes interesting reading after all this time.

Hi all,

I solved the problem with the EasyPtr window. It turned out to be my own
misunderstanding of the need for an OUTLN.

It now works fine when compiled in Q-Liberator with -WINDS turned off. I
can also run it from Superbasic, after messing with windows sizes.

Perhaps I can run it from an SBASIC job and so keep the system console with
conveniently sized windows.

local variables to their names when they are out of scope, please let me

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'.

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

OK, I've emailed copies of snooper and clock to you, here's a brief 
description of Snooper, from your website originally:


Snooper Basic

This version is Basic source code because I can't get it to work once 
compiled. It needs to be renumbered and merged with your Basic code. It may 
be activated with the BREAKPOINT keyword. For some reason it won't run when 
Turbo Toolkit is loaded. Has huge problems with local variables, which seem

Hello,

I originally bought a Sinclair QL some time in the mid 1980s. It was my
main computer for a while, but I eventually replaced it with an Atari ST
and it went into the attic.

A few years later I got back into the QL. I used QPC1 and then QPC2 on
whatever PC I had at the time. I gradually got interested in other things,
and then I seem to remember getting my first PC that had no diskette drive
and so I couldn't run QPC anymore.

During this period (1998 apparently) I wrote a program called Qbase that I
am astonished to find is available from Dilwyn's site and is part of the
Black Phoenix distribution.

So, a while ago I thought I'd see what was happening in the QL world (or
rather, if there still was one) and I found that it still existed and so
here I am, configuring my boot file and trying to get my head around
EasyPtr, again...

Outside the QL World I am actually a professional programmer and also a
linguist and researcher into automatic language analysis and speech
analytics.

It's nice to be reunited with the QL, and also to find so many familiar
names still involved with it.

I do already have a couple of questions, but I think they might be better
in a separate thread.

Hi Daniel, welcome, you're back home :-D
I still use your program very often.
The community is small but very active, especially in the last two years
there is a new enthusiasm in the air, or at least that seems to me.

[Ql-Users] Returning to the QL

2017-08-26 Thread Daniel Baum via Ql-Users
Hello,

I originally bought a Sinclair QL some time in the mid 1980s. It was my
main computer for a while, but I eventually replaced it with an Atari ST
and it went into the attic.

A few years later I got back into the QL. I used QPC1 and then QPC2 on
whatever PC I had at the time. I gradually got interested in other things,
and then I seem to remember getting my first PC that had no diskette drive
and so I couldn't run QPC anymore.

During this period (1998 apparently) I wrote a program called Qbase that I
am astonished to find is available from Dilwyn's site and is part of the
Black Phoenix distribution.

So, a while ago I thought I'd see what was happening in the QL world (or
rather, if there still was one) and I found that it still existed and so
here I am, configuring my boot file and trying to get my head around
EasyPtr, again...

Outside the QL World I am actually a professional programmer and also a
linguist and researcher into automatic language analysis and speech
analytics.

It's nice to be reunited with the QL, and also to find so many familiar
names still involved with it.

I do already have a couple of questions, but I think they might be better
in a separate thread.

Regards to all,

Daniel Baum
