I am not sure if this is the right place to post this.
I am trying to catalogue a directory of files / directories from assembler so as i get a dump of names to memory and not to the screen.
Everything a have read or tried seems to dump to the screen emulating BASIC's *CAT.
I would be very grateful if any one could post a solution and or email me.
Thanks, Greg

I have recently upgraded a machine from RISC OS 3.70 to 4.02. This has mostly been ok except that if I open a window with !ZAP 1.40 in it the hour glass comes on and stays on! Does any body know what this is? Alan

I've been asked to add support for these to a program.
I don't have Select. I'd like to know the sprite type used and layout of the alpha channel data (b24-31 0=transparent, 255 solid?).
Should I be dipped in brown sugar and baked in an Xmas pud for even having the temerity to ask? Rob.

Hi.
Hope someone can help.
I've got a Risc PC with RISC OS 3.70 which makes no reference to CD ROMS at all. CDFS is not available, *status has nothing with CD in it and *help makes no mention either of anything with CD in it (eg *help cd.).
I currently don't have one attached at the moment, but will be doing so soon - does this make a difference? Though I hope to connect it to an IDE Podule I originally thought it might be the motherboard, but the machine with the Cumana interface .... read more

I have connected my Iyonix to my partners PC with the correct cable, installed and setup a LAN card on her computer and use Omni on mine.
When I use F12 and then ping her computer(geecee), if it is switched on I get what look like normal timings returned, when it is off it says host is down. I say this as it probably indicates the two computers are actually connected properly.
However when I try to access her computer, a directory called john, which has sharing enabled, all I get is 'share n.... read more

!AMPlayer won't run and gives an error: Gadget tasks active Any ideas what is wrong? The only thing I've installed recently has been CDViewer (2.10 - is there a more recent version of this?).

If you're using Ghoulnet for web hosting or forwarding check your domain's who is with Nominet UK. Last year they charged me a renewal fee and then didn't pay Nominet UK. This came to light when I rehosted the site with another company. Fortunately noone had nicked the DN in the mean time.

I have been waiting for summer before putting this photo on the web. It is an artifact that I am very proud to possess, in memory of a very courageous man.

There should be some information on this, but I cannot find it. Not in the PRM, not in google. Must be looking in the wrong places...
Anyway, my SpamStamp program is an absolute that does some thingies. Of course, a lot of things can go wrong, so sometimes it needs to abort with an error.
The question is simple really. How do I do that? The PRM seems to say 'return with OS_GenerateError' but if I do that, the error isn't shown to the user, which is kind of not so handy. So my code to.... read more

I hope that this group is an appropriate place to ask for help.
When switching on my RiscPC using 3.7 I am almost immediately faced with this error message File 'System:Modules CallASWI' not found Error number &DC.
If I then at the star command type !boot <RET> everything seems to work as normal and the machine boots to my normal desktop.
If I put the module CallASWI into system:modules then on booting up the machine says something to the effect that this CallASWI won't work wi.... read more

I have thousands of midi files that i would like to print out a list of.
Filetree fails to do this with a buffer overflow. I expect drawfiles are too big.
Is there a text only app that will do a similar thing? I have a directory named alphabetical. in here directories named a,b,c,etc. In each of these you get adams_bryan, ac-cd etc then in these, the midi files.
Ideally e would like to drop the alphabetical directory into an app and generate a big textfile with all the names of the midifiles in .... read more

I know this is an oldie but it's gained a couple of bits since I last saw it :-) Lightbulbs How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb? The answer depends on the programming language used.
In BASIC it would take two programmers. One would nearly change the light bulb and the other would correct the mistakes, complete the change, and suggest it was done differently in future.
COBAL would require a programming team. Also, they would have to be in retirement and only obsolecent li.... read more

I've been trying to migrate my PGP 2.x stuff across to GnuPG, but can't find an equivalent to the +verbose=0 +batchmode option, or to the -z <passphrase> command. A look through the GnuPG documentation suggested that --batch --yes ought to help with the former, but for what I was trying it doesn't seem to work (presumably for security reasons): I'm trying to encrypt to a downloaded public key for which I cannot personally verify the owner (the case for all keys on my ke.... read more
