Re: pascal bug? integer word val shl ? loop

Hello, I think that maybe your code could be tweaked a little bit, now that it is working. Instead of reading the string from right to left and summing adding 'q shl (ln - 1)', I would read the string from left to right, shift bi to the left by 1 and add q, in other words 'bi := bi shl 1 + q'. For i...

making a very far target - less possibility to make it. It's better to port it first and only then start to improve it. +1 when free time and motivation is scarce, advancing little step by little step is better.

Re: hatari v2.1.0 on linux ubuntu 16.04 LTS : no sound

I guess the "snap" thing is not that self-sufficient, anyway the older 1.8 is good enough for now, I'll do with that. However I tried compiling 2.1 by myself in the hope that it builds without problem, but cmake fails with pthread test at the configuration step (the equivalent of autotools usual 'co...
