Re: downloaded webjames.zip and stuck

Find !SparkFS and double click it. if your .zip file doesn't have a folder type icon, then drag it on to the SparkFS icon on the icon bar and it will set the file type and open your zip file. If your zip file has the file type set (i.e. has a folder icon with a flash) then just double click it.

Re: gcc and RISC OS

David, The fork in the OS happened after RO4.02, which was a development of the OS Acorn had intended for Phoebe. Any changes in 4.xx after 4.02 did not make it into the RO5.xx code. Likewise any developments to the 5.xx branch did not feed back into 4.xx. So everything Justin writes about refers to...

I think one thing that needs to be sorted before that can happen is the printing needs to be fixed. Current print solutions that I am aware of involve running a sepaate Windows PC on the network and printing via proxy. Not that I'd noticed. I plugged a USB printer in, and pretty much started printi...

Re: 1 GB image

RISCOS doesn't know about the partition table used by other OS's at the moment. So even if you edited it, the size of your RISCOS partition wouldn't change.

The safest thing to do for now, is to use any free space on your card as a fat32 partition and use Fat32FS to access it.

If you plan to publish any software you write, then please consider using ARM v7 as it will expose your work to a larger audience and give it a longer shelf life.

Two observations. 1 Rosetta Code uses the section title BBC BASIC, but many examples use bb4w-specific code.

If you have SparkFS running you can drag incorrectly typed zip files to its iconbar icon and it will open them and set the correct file type.
