[Ql-Users] Qbase version 1.0

2017-09-22 Thread Daniel Baum via Ql-Users
Hi all,

After nearly 20 years, here is version 1.00 of QBase.

The (hopefully) full list of changes since the 1998 version is in the
README file in the zip.

Since v0.99, the only new feature is that the page size and scroll size of
the tabular view are now CONFIGurable.

Other than that, I have fixed several bugs, cleaned up the code and much
improved the error trapping.

You can download it here:

Hi all,

That's very good news about QMenu.

Anyway, two people have sent me the correct parameters for FILE_SELECT, and
I am coming to the conclusion that version 7.66 ignores the file extension
and always shows all files in a directory. The same is not true of a
version 5 that I also have.

The command that I used is something like
a$=FILE_SELECT$("Open","QBase","win1_qbsrc_","_dbs").
Everything is set up correctly in the dialogue box but there is no
filtering.

I have tried this on QPC2 and Q-Emulator, with no other extensions loaded,
to eliminated some sort of clash.

Unfortunately it isn't because it's not just a basic extension. The
functionality itself is implemented in globally visible "things" so that it
can be used from any language, the basic commands are just wrappers for
them.

So what would probably happen is that the linked copy would overwrite any
existing "things" with the same names and everything will crash once you
remove the job again because of dangling pointers.

Hi,

I believe that the Api has remained pretty stable since v. 7.


Wolfgang


Yes, but if the API has changed from version to version, then it WILL fail
for some users who are using a different version to the one that I am
writing for in my program.

Therefore linking it seems like a good idea.

Whatever, I will update the program for the latest version and hope for the

A question about QBase and QMenu.

The menu  extensions are used fairly extensively in QBase. However, the
program was originally written in 1998 with whatever version of QMenu

was

current then, and it doesn't seem to work properly with the later

version

(version 7.66) which is distributed with QPC.

I also have a version 5.06, which appears to work much better with

QBase,

and I thought it might be a good idea to link it into QBase with
Q-Liberator and avoid problems for people using later versions.

The other possibility is to update the QBase code, but for this I would
need a manual, which seems to be unavailable (is it really still
commercial?). I did purchase a copy of QMenu in the 1990s, but I can't
find
the manual, which I assume is buried somewhere in my attic.

So, does anyone know the correct parameters for linking menu_rext into a
Q_Liberator compiled program?

Thanks,

D.

Hi all,


Here is the new version of QBase.

Changes:

- Loads in 512x256 resolution, and is resizable.
- May be called with a command-line parameter, e.g. ex
flp1_Qbase_obj;'flp1_data_dbs'
- Lots of refactoring. The eagle-eyed among you may notice that it's a
lot smaller than it was.

Tested on QPC2 with SMSQ/E 3.31, Q-Emulator with SMSQ/E 3.31

Unlike the previous version, this one also works on Q-Emulator with
Minerva. I couldn't get it to work on a JS ROM. It reported "Channel

not

open", and I've no idea why.

Is it important to anyone to run QBase on original QL hardware?

Testing

with Q_Emulator and Minerva at "QL speed" it appears to be extremely
slow,
especially when switching to tabular mode. I could try to get it to

run

a
bit faster if anyone is interested. I hadn't remembered just how much
faster QPC is than a real QL until I started using Q-Emulator.

Download the new QBase here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4s3fm0rm84mxfn7/QBase.zip?dl=0

Currently I have numbered this version 0.99. It will become version

1.0

one it's been tested and bugfixed

Finally, I'd like to give an honourable mention to MasterBasic by

Ergon

Development (Davide Santachiara). It made 80s-style program editing
bearable (almost...). The more massive refactoring was done with
Notepad++
on Windows.

program was originally written in 1998 with whatever version of QMenu was
current then, and it doesn't seem to work properly with the later version
(version 7.66) which is distributed with QPC.

I also have a version 5.06, which appears to work much better with QBase,
and I thought it might be a good idea to link it into QBase with
Q-Liberator and avoid problems for people using later versions.

The other possibility is to update the QBase code, but for this I would
need a manual, which seems to be unavailable (is it really still
commercial?). I did purchase a copy of QMenu in the 1990s, but I can't find
the manual, which I assume is buried somewhere in my attic.

So, does anyone know the correct parameters for linking menu_rext into a
Q_Liberator compiled program?

Thanks,

D.

Hi all,

In my previous posting I forgot to mention another new feature: The tabular
view no longer attempts to load the whole file at once. It can now be paged
up and down using the left and right arrow buttons. This way you can load
large files without hitting any memory limitations.

The page size and the scroll size are both parameters that eventually I
intend to put in a Config block to the user can alter them.

Thanks to Bob Spelten for pointing out the need for this.

Rgds,

Daniel

Re: [Ql-Users] Qbase

2017-09-14 Thread Daniel Baum via Ql-Users
Hi all,

Here is the new version of QBase.

Changes:

- Loads in 512x256 resolution, and is resizable.
- May be called with a command-line parameter, e.g. ex
flp1_Qbase_obj;'flp1_data_dbs'
- Lots of refactoring. The eagle-eyed among you may notice that it's a lot
smaller than it was.

Tested on QPC2 with SMSQ/E 3.31, Q-Emulator with SMSQ/E 3.31

Unlike the previous version, this one also works on Q-Emulator with
Minerva. I couldn't get it to work on a JS ROM. It reported "Channel not
open", and I've no idea why.

Is it important to anyone to run QBase on original QL hardware? Testing
with Q_Emulator and Minerva at "QL speed" it appears to be extremely slow,
especially when switching to tabular mode. I could try to get it to run a
bit faster if anyone is interested. I hadn't remembered just how much
faster QPC is than a real QL until I started using Q-Emulator.

Download the new QBase here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4s3fm0rm84mxfn7/QBase.zip?dl=0

Currently I have numbered this version 0.99. It will become version 1.0 one
it's been tested and bugfixed

Finally, I'd like to give an honourable mention to MasterBasic by Ergon
Development (Davide Santachiara). It made 80s-style program editing
bearable (almost...). The more massive refactoring was done with Notepad++
on Windows.

Regards to all,

D.

Hi Darren,

Not yet. The next release will have the 512x256 compatibility, the
rescaling, the paging and the command line parameter.

The first two are done, the third is working but needs more work, and the
last is still to do.

Should take a few days.

Rgds,

D.

The test _dbs has 3111 records by 6 fields making 18666 menu items.
That is well within the limit of items (<32K) WMAN2 can handle in the AW.
Records times Fields must be less.
But there is also a limit in S*Basic of 65K for indexing second and third  
dimensions, in this case Fields x Field_length (including length word).
As you used Fields as the first dimension instead, 2nd (Records: 3111)  
times 3rd (length: 20 +2) would be just too much.
As records will in most cases be the highest number, making it the first  
dimension is the best choice.
So checking these limits and using paging is the only option for a large  
database that exceed these limits.

Re: [Ql-Users] Qbase

Hello,

Here are some observations from my first investigations of what is going on:

- The original DIM statement is no_of_fields-1, no_of_records,20. This
results in "Dimensional overflow , you can't be serious!". We have
obviously hit some kind of internal limit.

- Reducing the string length parameter to 10 no longer produces an error,
but does produce garbled output in the table.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d2dirro7w7eddxl/garbled.jpg?dl=0

- Reducing the string length to 8 seems to work properly.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ai5lrju0xba74cw/OK.jpg?dl=0

I'm not sure what's going on here. It seems to be both an array size limit,
which produces the first result, and a possible problem in EasyPtr itself,
which produces the second one.

Thanks,

D.

Re: [Ql-Users] Qbase

2017-09-10 Thread Daniel Baum via Ql-Users
Hi Bob,

Since Qbase is essentially untested, other than my own efforts, this is not
really surprising.

Would it be possible to send me a copy of the database? It would greatly
help with debugging to have access to a database that makes the system
crash.

Rgds,

Daniel

Hi all,

Latest pictures.

Qbase is now rescalable. It starts at 512x256:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/exexw4s5ppexyi4/qbaseTab512x256.jpg?dl=0

and can get as big as you want:

These pictures show the automatic proportional column width in the

Looking good.

I played with the current version as found in BP143 and I did get a Qlib  
error when hitting the Tabulate button.
I must admit it was a big database of over 3000 records and 6 fields, with  
one of 500 characters.

Qbase probably tried to get them all in one array for the menu items.
The big field could of course be cut to the visible column width.

"Qlib error 16, array too big" suggests there are too many elements.
A dimensions check would be nice here, so the Tab action can be aborted  
with a warning, before the program crashes.

(See sections 6.4 & 8.8 of the Qlib 3.3 manual)

Re: [Ql-Users] Qbase

Hi Daniel,

Executing a DBS file with Fileinfo2 is really easy to do.

I supplied QBASE on the Q60 software distribution, but QBASE v0.9 did 
not allow passing of the database filename in the command string.


IF you can make QBASE open the database file from a command string, this 
Which would allow Fileinfo2 to be configured to execute QBASE and open 
the database file.


Fileinfo2 allows a selection of options and in my opinion is one of the 
best QL extensions available.


I find the execution of data file more efficient.

For example, I setup Fileinfo2 to execute a ZIP archive file, giving me 
the option of unzip the archive to the default data directory or launch 
ACP (Archivers Control Panel).


Regards,

Derek

If I understand correctly, this should also mean that you will be able to
"execute" a DBS file using QPAC2 and Fileinfo and open it with QBase.

Indeed, thanks to the work of the operating system people (Marcel and
Wolfgang), the System Palette makes it easy for programs to follow a
generic colour scheme for programs, a little bit like Windows themes

for

example.

There's an article about using it from SBASIC on my website at

Hi Giorgio,

Here is a screenshot of Qbase running at 512x256 under QPC.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/w3nwwsc3q5rakhu/qbase512x256.jpg?dl=0

Plenty more to do, but there will be a new version of QBase eventually.

BTW, 512x256 running at full screen on a 28" monitor looks REALLY big :)

[Ql-Users] Qbase

2017-09-03 Thread Derek via Ql-Users


Hi David,
I produced the Q60 in 2002 and put Qbase on the the software distribution on 
all cased Q60 machines. 
Qbase I thought was really good piece of software.

Thanks Giorgio. It looks gorgeous and it seems that a huge amount of work
has gone into integrating everything.

I also had a look at your site for the first time, which seems to have lots
of interesting content on it too.

I also noticed that my Qbase is in your download section :) Since it
appears likely that it actually has some users, is there anything that
needs fixing or adding? I'd be happy to do a new version if you are
interested.
