George, the question is relevant if you write programs intended for other people: You cant be sure THEY will load Turbo. However, IMHO, any serious Tinkerer should load Turbo as a matter of course. Per On 18 August 2017 at 16:54, gdgqler--- via Ql-Users < ql-users@lists.q-v-d.com> wrote: > > >

Hi Michael, I dont know why it doesnt work for you. I just clicked on the link now and it works for me. Try copying the link and pasting it in your browser. The article is about searching for specific keywords in SuperBASIC, SBASIC and compiled BASIC without the use of an external toolkit. Per PS

I dont know of an easy way. It seems to be a feature of Wman. The two solutions I can suggest are: 1. Two-step approach: Have a keypress, say TAB, to select the MAW, then press the relevant key. 2. Hidden Loose Items: If there are not too many items in the MAW, and they remain the same

Thats a nice solution. Not sufficient for all manner of keywords, though. A more general solution for checking for relevant toolkits in boot programs, without having to load a toolkit to do so can be found in this article: http://www.hunggartorino.it/ql/findkey/ (also available in Italian!) Per
