Re: [Ql-Users] Function type error

The type of a function is not determined by the function name ending in a $ or % sign, but rather by what it returns - You can even write a function STRING% that returns a string or a function a$ that returns an integer value. The name you give your function is simply a hint to yourselves on

Lee, there are a number of toolkits that allow you to check for specific other toolkit commands loaded or not - But this is a bit useless as it leaves you with a chicken-and-egg problem: How to check whether the checking toolkit is loaded? Your best bet on SMSQ/E would be a WHEN ERRor clause

You _can_ open a cONsole window with more than 128 bytes of input buffer ("con_512x202a0x0_256", for example). But you _cannot_ tell S*Basic to open #0 like that as default. I just checked: close#0:open#0,"con_512x256a0x0_1024" seems to work. Unfortunately, I cannot check how large the

Lee, are you running on SMSQ/E? Are you maybe running PE with PE_BGOFF? That will not allow your background program to run when it has (even partially) obstructed windows. So, if you "TYPE_IN" something into an obstructed S*Basic window, the job owning that window will not be able to digest

Peter, you obviously seem to have a RPTR on your system, so that is most probably not the problem. I would have a look at the OUTLN and WINDOW commands a bit up from there - They seem to be setting #0 to a zero size/outline (which is basically the whole point of the program) - This might

That is why I proposed 2x2 - Depending on window position, the PE might round down the outline to the next even size, which is 0x0 when you have 1x1 ;) - So, you're back at the starting point. Not really sure that is the problem, but might be it. I did try to check the same, but on my system I
