Re: EmuTOS and Milan60

That's annoying.

Is there any other way to access large partitions from TOS ?

EmuTOS and Milan60

Which is the correct EmuTOS for running on a Milan ?

I downloaded emutos-prg-0.9.12.zip and tried running emutos.prg and emutosuk.prg both cause and immediate lock-up.

I was hoping that EmuTOS might be able to access the large partitions that Milan TOS cannot access.

Re: Pure Pascal EOF

I had to handle the end of the file by testing for zero in the value returned. Luckily this is ascii so that works.

Does anyone have a list of the Pure Pascal runtime error codes ?

What have you done to your Atari today ?

My Milan got a new psu. The old AT one was getting noisy and so I bought an ATX one an adapter to fit the motherboard. The new psu has sata power plugs and so I had ordered 2 sata to Molex adapters at the same time but when the psu arrived it all ready has 2 molex plugs. I still needed 1 adapter bec...

Re: Pure Pascal EOF

That doesn't work.

Once in the read loop it wouldn't make sense either.

Example:

It seems to be any attempt to check EOF causes the error.

Pure Pascal EOF

I am just playing with an old Pure Pascal app I wrote years ago to do some processing of MyMail files. It needs strings longer than the Pascal 255 ones so I implemented a 1024 char string. It is read char by char but I have hit problems with testing EOF(file), it is causing a runtime 100 error. I tr...

Re: Texel sources available

It would be nice to be able to use English definitions in .frm

That would probably mean adding language definitions for day (T or D), month ( M or M) and year (J or Y) and use those in TXmain instead of the literals.

Re: Texel sources available

My guess is that there is an issue in either the date formats or the handling of the date formats. e.g. German [TT].[MM].[JJJJ] is good English [DD].[MM].[YYYY] is bad In txmain it does comparisons against literal values e.g. 'TT'. Should these be defined dependent in the language ? : if dummy='T' ...

There seems to be a problem with date formats. When I open a s/s with a date column it shows the month like this .04.

I created a new s/s and it is the same.

Great work. I tried Mint USB on my Milan again a few days ago. It has not worked properly for a long time, only the earliest versions worked without mangling file names and/or for content.
