QPC2 v4.04 including

QPC2 v4 FULL version for Mac OS X

This distribution was assembled by Peta Jaeger and contains a ready-to-run version of WINE configured to run QPC2, so it handles pretty much like a native Mac OS X application. It also includes the Black Phoenix distribution by our Italian friends from Quantum Technology. Please note that I do not provide support for this version, for questions contact Peta Jaeger, his eMail address is included in the “Readme Mac” file.

While QPC develops the manual often changes, too. Here you can get the latest revision as a PDF file. You need some Software like the Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to view it.

QPC2 v4 manual revision 4.02

Martin Head kindly provided 2 more manuals, first a complete reference manual for all SBasic commands included in QPC2 and second a “concepts” manual with much more in-depth information on how different things in SMSQ/E work.

3rd party tools for QPC

In this section I’d like to provide access to tools specifically designed or adapted for the use with QPC. If you like the tools please give some feedback to the authors, they deserve it. If you have written a tool and would like to see it here, just contact me.

clavier, very cool application by Wolfgang Lenerz with which you can do your own SMSQ/E keyboard layout (have a look at the screenshot). If you do create one for your country, please send it to me!

Clavier v1.09

qwirc, the “QL Winchester Information and Rename console” by Per Witte is a neat little program that helps you changing the WIN association and the partition names. Furthermore you can get information like size, free space, write protect status, file count, directory count and even the space wasted by the file system, all neatly presented with a graphical user interface (see screenshot). Now in high colour!

Miscellaneous files

MPS is a very simple ASCII to Postscript converter written by Richard Urena. To promote Postscript in the QL world I compiled it for use with SMSQ. Here you can get the original source (if I recall correctly I didn’t need to modify anything) along with the SMSQ binary. It can be directly used as a QD print filter for example.


And as I know that many of the QL tinkerers are much more into SBasic than into C I did a port of the original C source to SBasic for playing around with it. It lacks the command line interface of the original MPS but apart from that the converter code is complete. Improvements and additions welcome.
