Nobody has replied to say thank you for doing all these! I find these articles very useful when I need a quick reference for the details of a control block for an OSWORD call and such-like.

So thank you for doing all these!

I just made a lot of use of the BeebWiki osbyte/osword pages, trying to work out all the magic numbers I'd used in my code.... that'll teach me not to document things!

Thanks :-)

Hi,

Went to the second and third link and I get trojan virus warnings.

Just a head's up in case it's real.

Thanks,

Odd. Could be because the content has chunks of sample code and the scanner thinks it's executable code. Do you get a warning reading this:

Code: Select all

A%=0:X%=1:os%=((USR&FFF4)AND&FF00)DIV256:cpu%=0:A%=-1

Code: Select all

I really like your wiki.
I just tried SOUND as I am looking at speech and noticed that the references are all dead, I guess that is really hard to track and I seem to remember that chris... changed a little while back.

The Wiki was offline for a few hours today. Spambots had managed to work out the answers to the challenge questions, so I took the Wiki offline for a bit to change the questions and answers, and to delete the spam pages.

I'm fairly certain regulars will be able to work out the correct answers. :)
