Hi Marcel,

I really wanted the manual on Kindle, which was completed prior to the updates 
of the PDF version. 

I may convert the manual to epub or kindle format.

I did think of trying write an ereader for the QL, but never really got off the 
drawing board.

Regards
Derek

This is really well done, thank you very much Derek. I actually was
halve-way through converting it myself when Wolfgang mentioned Derek
was already on the job, so I stopped. But I know what amount of work
that must have been, very commendable!

Hi,

I have just tried unzipping the epub file to a directory, all the HTML 
linked pages seem to link crrectly in a web browser (Firefox)


So when all the correction have been made a WIKI version could be produced.

I have converted all the TRAP and Vector Tables to HTML tables, which 
size is depentan on the scree. Assuming viewing the manual on a mobile 
phone with small screen area may still format correctly, though I have 
to test this, I ideally wanted on a Kindle.

Actually all #3 traps are implemented at the discretion of the device
driver, so it's always just a documentation of what they should do,
not necessarily of what they are actually doing ;-)

IOF.FLSH and IOF.CHEK don't make sense for RAM discs, for example,
there is nothing to flush, it's all just in RAM anyway. So they just
say all right, did it and be done with it. I for one don't think
this needs to be mentioned separately.

Epub uses Zip hold all the files with the config files.

 Which is how I produced the SBASIC Reference Manual Ebook, I dumped the
 HTML web pages into Sigil and after a little reformatting produced a
 nice ebook for my Kindle.

 Sigil can merge all the HTML pages into a single HTML file.

 So I suppose a web version is possible, on the assumption the detail can

I think youre right! No reference to IOF.TEST in the Smsq sources,

Dilwyn,


In my printed copy of Jochen's QDOS/SMS Reference Guide,
iof.posa and iof.posr also have the same key (d0=$42,
whereas iof.posr should be $43


Youre right about iof.posr, but this has already been corrected in 
later additions.



All the other $4x trap #3s are defined leaving only $44,
which must be iof.test


I dont think youre right about this. Trap#3, code $44 is set to 
iof.posv (set position to virtual address). See the keys_qdos_io

I have been converting the QDOS/SMS Reference Manual PDF manual to
work on my Kindle, using Sigil to convert the screen copied text to
epub - mobi. This for my reference.

I have nearly finished and corrected some obvious mistakes.

However, there is a little problem in the manual:

Section 5.2 File I/O, Page 3, Last Paragraph:

quote

The IOF.FLSH and IOF.TEST commands are subtly different: IOF.FLSH
ensures that all write operations are complete, whereas IOF.TEST
ensures that all write and read operations (including
prefetches) are complete.

/quote

I can not find any reference to IOF.TEST

Should this be IOB.TEST ?

Regards,

Derek

No, doesn't make sense. I guess they meant IOF.CHEK.

Hi Rich,

I am using Sigil to edit the epub file, which formats each page pr 
section into a series of HTML files and uses ZIP compression to produce 
the final epub file.


Which is how I produced the SBASIC Reference Manual Ebook, I dumped the 
HTML web pages into Sigil and after a little reformatting produced a 
nice ebook for my Kindle.


Sigil can merge all the HTML pages into a single HTML file.

So I suppose a web version is possible, on the assumption the detail can 
be corrected.


Regards,

Derek

Hi,

I just looked in the SMSQ/E sources and can not fond IOF.TEST.

Is the statement in Section 5.3 correct?

If not how should read.

Regards,

Derek

Actually $44 is defined as iof.posv in the sources, but I'd venture a
guess that no driver on earth ever implemented it.
