Re: NeoDesk 4 Icon Disk

I fear so, yes, unless someone finds some description on the file format. Icon Juggler is supposed to be able to load it, but it looks like there are different versions of the format, maybe it was never adapted to newer versions. A quick look also did not reveal something simple, maybe the data is ...

They call it innovation, we call it standard. :lol: Still after all these years, you can't click the macOS desktop background to get the Finder windows to come to the foreground, only the menu bar. Eventually this will be some new wiz bang feature at a future keynote. :P

Re: Use a second assembler routine

I assume since it's called from basic it must be pc relative code. In devpac I use 'opt chkpc' to make sure everything is pc relative. So long as you don't clobber a2 it should work. ;)

Re: Use a second assembler routine

I don't see why not assuming the second routine ends with RTS. JSR (a2) if memory serves me right.

Re: Pexec in HiSoft Basic anyone?

Not sure what manual you are using, but mine says something about pexec() falling if the calling program doesn't leave the operating system enough free ram to execute the requested program.

Re: Pexec in HiSoft Basic anyone?

Don't know if the command internally adds the required nulls. If the null isn't added it might not see the path correctly. Try adding the null, it shouldn't hurt anything, since the string is passed via address.

Re: Float variable

When this bit is changed in float variable, the number is negative. BSET expects integer types. Internally it converts 'a' to an integer, sets the bit, then converts...

Re: GFA-Basic English manuals (PDF)

My manual said 3.0 on the cover, however it had an extra chapter about 3.5, it's even listed in the table of contents.

Trying to sort out what the differences are from 3.5 to 3.6, but never seen a 3.6 manual. Don't suppose any one has 3.6 addendum pages laying around?
