I couldnt resist wading in here. Regarding Michael's original question the
Mint% routine should answer.Try this:
110 a = 330.7: b = 440.7
120 PRINT #0, Min_Int%(a, b), Mint%(a, b)
130 PAUSE -1
160 DEFine FuNction Min_Int%(x%,i)
170 IF x% < i : RETurn x% : ELSE : RETurn i
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.

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
Yes, its dumb, but the problem has been there since the day day dot. So
suck it up and work around :)

Lots of different programs use Qmenu, so there should be no need to link it
in. Its best loaded at boot time.

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!)
Yes, but not with Wman. You have to devise your own.

PS You will probably also need some kind of toolkit to reserve and release
a slot in the Button Frame. If you dont have one and dont feel like writing
your own, you may use mine. Its just over 300b of code.

Is this the sort of issue you mean?
110 FOR i = 0 TO 4
120 FOR j = 0 TO 4
130 AT i * 2, j * 6: PRINT i; ','; j;
140 END FOR
150 END FOR

Despite computers getting
As mentioned, the suggested binary standard would be in addition to the
established text standard as used by QCoCo. Its easy enough to convert
files back and forth between these formats. So pundits and punters are free
to choose. A possible advantage with having a header, such as "THB9" (where
Im particularly pleased that many of the differences in behaviour between
SMSQmulator and QPC2 have been ironed out! That means that programmers dont
have to write separate versions, or include fiddly workarounds, in their

I was just made aware of a number of features in Q-Lberator that I havent
seen documented anywhere: EXT_PROC, EXT_FN, GLOBAL, and possibly others. I
believe I have a general idea of what theyre about, but should like to see
some documentation. Ive been told there is a chapter 14 in some manuals?
Im not familiar with C++ overloading, but S*BASIC allows some "parametric
