It seems like part of this argument is about the meaning of the word "hacker", which in popular culture seems to have some negative connotations. From the jargon file : 1. A person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to...

Just wondering how your QML reader is coming along... It's kind of a fun project to work on. Right now I'm writing another version of Qbrowse

If you are writing your own stand alone operating system, you can't use any Qbasic file system commands. You will have to write a lot in assembly. For every platform QB is designed for, shell will work. Most QB GUIs are written to run on DOS, which is nice and minimul and handles shell fine. NTDVM i...

Try SHELL.

How did you make your browser work without it?

Hmm, well I couldn't replicate the random color flashing with my PHP script but I did make it select a random color. I like the effect, though :).

Interesting... I'm trying to write a SML=>QML converter thing in PHP to link the SML and QML nets. I can't figure out what COLOR=-1 does, though. EDIT: Converter half done. You can see it in a QML reader at http://pharoah.xetaspace.net/sml You can also view it through the online QML viewer (which is...

What happened to QB express?

I know I've probably just missed something, but what happened to the QB Express newsletter? There hasn't been a new issue for months, it seems. If you need contributions or something like that, I'd be able to submit some articles. I'm a fairly decent writer, as it happens.

Nice work! SML reminds me of wiki style markup langauges. It's definitely a different approach from the one I've taken. You should try writing a QML reader, though. You'd have more pages to test it on, for one thing, although like I said the count is only 20 something right now (including a QB split...

Could you be a bit more specific about what you are looking for... I read your other template creator post but still i don't know what kind of format these are in or exactly how your software works.

Thought I'd update. Two new QML readers are being written. One is by Trolly, a Belgian programmer, and is part of his new QuickBasic GUI Orion (which is worth checking out just for the GUI). A beta version is available for download. The other is by Sonicbrit and was just started, but it's worth ment...

In case you're curious, the way things like WGET can be used to send data to the server (IE for a chat script), is to embed encoded data in the URL. For example, to send a chat from name "john" with message "hello world", you might do this: wget http://example.com/chat.php?name=j...

Different QML readers handle the network stuff in different ways. Both Qbrowse and CQML use an external program which can be invoked at the command line to download a file from URL. Qbrowse's is called GetNet, it's a very little and simple executable. CQML uses GNU WGET, which is cross-platform and ...

Thought I'd log in to say that QML has made slow but steady progress. There are many more QML utilities, some written in QB and FB, some in PHP, and a QML reader in Python, which will run on almost any machine known to man. Most of the news and things can still be found at: http://pharoah.xetaspace....

Sometimes you have to try loading multiple times with Qbrowse, but I wouldn't recommend using it. The latest Qbrowse release is also the first, and doesn't support forms or auto-refresh, which means no chat. You'd be better off using CQML, which works for windows and linux.

QML 2.1 is out now, with almost all the bugs fixed and a very reliably working forms system. There's a somewhat popular chat room I've implemented in QML where you can leave a message for people to answer later or chat in live with whoever happens to be there. Uses auto-refresh, but you can't really...
