Hm, I haven't done any QL programming since 1997 when I wrote a Jeopary game 
to use in my class. I worked as a teacher for 6 years, and the game Jeopardy 
was a big hit on TV. My students loved it. I wrote a program to control input 
from two joysticks and keep records of who pressed the button first. I asked a 
question and the fastest one could answer. The program counted points and so 
on. I had an Atari computer with the QL emulator in my classroom.

I'm not sure my wife agree I spend more time on computers than I already do :-)

I'll check if I have the original Calamus document. The manual was made
with Calamus, an Atari DTP program. I think I still have a backup of my
Atari stuff. I'll let you know.

I have tried Marcel's version on my QPC2 and it works fine here except for  
an error when I try to do a directory on my WIN1_ with the full tree when  
I get a string not numeric.  Hmmm shame the sources are not available.

My guess Marcel is that you have another toolkit loaded which redefines  
SORT.

Maybe you should try loading the extensions_cde AFTER you have loaded all  
your boot files.
The various keywords used by the program are quite clear towards the end,  
so that might help you spot a conflict on your system.

I'll send you a version of my WMAN demo disc (that I've been working

it's ready to run. It comes with 2 different colour schemes, too.

BTW, I do always get a QLib error when starting DM5, but it seems like

Q_ERR_ON
illegal parameter
Now that is a nasty one - unless, it relates to a keyword which is  
missing.  After all, Q_ERR_ON only expects one type of parameter - a list  
(?) of procedures and functions which should be monitored for error  
returns.  Now, all the keywords for QLib appear towards the end IIRC, so  
might be worth casting an eye over the list - if you want to email me a  
copy of DM5 (send it to the AOL address) I will have a look and see if I

It is indeed very nice to hear from any of the QL software writers who  
have been out of the scene for a while.

There have been quite a lot of developments to the original QL over the  
years, so you might have a lot of background reading to catch up if you  
are interested.

Not only do I use it a lot but I still have one copy in my stock for 
sale. I was wondering what you were doing but I had lost your email 
address ages ago. It would be nice to update the interface to use the 
new colours. There are several things that Disk Mate 5 did very well and 
I have used  it to format disks when issuing a format command on the 
command line has failed. I also use it to copy the QL Today cover disks. 
It would be nice to see you back in the community.

Actually it's not that much of a problem as you use the standard QPAC2
window scheme. For that I have developed tools that can do most of the
conversion automatically on existing binaries. After that only a few
manual fixups needed to also make use of the new sprites. If anybody
can send me the latest release I see what I can do.
