Re: Things I am doing. Desktop application

I was targeting Linux, Windows and probably mac, though I won't ever buy one, so I just hope that will work due to the cross platform nature of python. I haven't really considered mobile. I am using pyqt as it is one of the nicer cross platform toolkits, and I like the fact it is free/open source. A...

Re: Web Based DFS Disk image filer

I created a pull request of some changes I thought might be useful for anyone wanting to hack around with it like I did. Mostly just split the javascript into its own file.

DFS Explorer

Shawty has developed a DFS Image filer in javascript. I thought it might be useful on bbcmicro.co.uk, so hacked it around a little and uploaded it. At present the way to use it is to open the game details page for a game you are interested in, then edit the URL to change game.php to explore.php, e.g...

if you feel like putting a little credit on display, then that's always going to be appreciated.
Yes, I will credit you by linking to your github repo so people know where to get the code, unless you prefer another method. I was thinking of a "Powered by" style footer.

Reading from keyboard buffer and escape condition

Going back to looking at vi again. Ideally I want to read a character from the keyboard buffer. Is this possible, or am I just revealing my ignorance? The best I have come up with is osbyte &81 - read key with time limit. I don't really want to wait, so I gave it 1 centisecond, but that still seems ...

The n command should set a breakpoint on instruction after the current one, and run until that is hit.
Thanks - that makes complete sense now, because it never hit the next instruction - it branched.

Re: Which debugger do you use?

How does the n command in b-em work? The help says

Code: Select all

    n          - step, but treat a called subroutine as one step
But when it hit a BNE it didn't return until it hit a breakpoint, so it thinks that is a subroutine? I thought the only way to call a subroutine is JSR.

I have been using b-em, but I have to keep manually checking the memory address against the dasm file and then against the code. Is there a better debugger?

Re: bbcmicro.co.uk - going beyond games?

Looking at the original vision, bbcmicro.co.uk has already moved far beyond what was originally envisaged by arcadian. However, what Sunrise is suggesting matches the description of the Grand Unified Acorn Preservation Project. Would a better idea be to start a new project/website for this?
