Re: Basic eating task memory

By opening StrongED task window (Right click) and selecting BASIC mode. An Adjust (right) click on StrongED's iconbar icon opens the Modes menu. Clicking on a mode name opens a new text using that mode. The easiest way to run a BASIC program from StrongED is to use either the 'Run' icon (second fro...

Re: Oh boy... RISC OS on Pi!!!

Haven't written any BBC Basic since 1986, but I seem to recall there being an inline assembler back in the day. So I guess we can get real down and dirty where it counts, and get quite close to the performance of bare metal! Indeed you can and the built-in assembler is quite powerful too. The Stron...

There's no need to go to the command line to load a module, you can just double-click it.

Re: New to RISC OS? Read this!

Think we'll have a wait for a Python port. There are two Python ports for RISC OS. http://www.cgransden.co.uk/python27.zip http://web.archive.org/web/20071223061900/http://python.acorn.de/ The first is a recent port and should be OK on the RPi. The second is an older, Python 2.4, port. It runs on t...

Re: RISC OS released on Raspberry Pi

Opening the BASIC file only seems to work by shift double clicking. If I open a !StrongED window, and drag a BASIC file onto it from the BASIC.Routines folder, the title bar says "Textfile *". There is no syntax highlighting either, which there is when I shift double click. When you drag a file to ...

Re: RISC OS released on Raspberry Pi

Anyway, I've tried downloading some files from the internet (pdf docs mainly) but the NetSurf Download window just stops when the progress bar is full - it doesn't appear to complete. If I click the X, it asks if I want to abort the download. How do I complete the download? Drag the file icon in th...

Re: RISC OS released on Raspberry Pi

If you need to interface with the WIMP (AKA GUI) then you're going to have to use SWI's all over the place anyway. You could use BASIC libraries/extensions such as DrWimp/AppBasic/Basalt to program the WIMP. They hide a lot of the SWI specifics by providing providing wrapper functions (DrWimp, AppB...

Re: RISC OS released on Raspberry Pi

For ssh you could try the packages offered by PackMan (NettleSSH, Openssh) but I'm not sure if they've been updated for ARMv6/v7. An up-to-date FTP client can be found here: http://www.ftpc.iconbar.com/ PackMan only seems to offer an older (1.44 vs 1.48) version which probably won't work on the RPi....

Re: Risc OS set-up

I was under the impression that the idea is to only claim something like this if it hasn't already been claimed - something like If "<alias$@RunType_FFF>" = "" Then set .... Yes, that's how it should be done but unfortunately Edit uses a macro, rather than a plain variable, which means that the abo...
