Some PDFs seems to have the text of the documents twice, as Text and as a bitmap, which seems to confuse !PDF. Haven't encountered that problem for a while, so I assumed it was fixed. Maybe I was just lucky with my selection to PDFs to view. ;) What you can do is to select "Display->No text&quo...

I've seen links for software to fudge it but can't get them to work. I've downloaded them via my Windows PC, extracted them and placed them on my SD card. After booting up the Pi and finding them on the SD card I can't get them to work - the Pi says it does not recognise the file type. Have you any...

Sorry no guide due to lack of time, but a hint: All BASIC keywords have to be entered in CAPS, otherwise the interpreter won't recognize them. On brighter side, you can do this:
Code: Select all
>10 print=42 >20 PRINT print >RUN 42

Can't offer any experience with that tool, though.

What did you do with UnixHome exactly and what error messages do you get? I assume you already did the obvious thing and deleted UnixHome? In fact, I am surprised that you have trouble with UnixHome, as all what is does is to provide a "unixfied" path to a folder inside of UnixHome. In thi...
By opening StrongED task window (Right click) and selecting BASIC mode. Just to avoid confusion: You don't open a task window there, you create a new empty BASIC file (or HTML or C or 1000 other things depending on your choice). When running the sample Print program, an automatic new output window ...
Nothing wrong here. The task window is provided by your prefered text editor, !Edit, !StrongED or !Zap. That means the output of your example program becomes on the fly a text file which grows and grows and grows in memory. An alternative would be !GraphTask from http://www.armclub.org.uk/free/ . I ...

To complete the list and the confusion:Grumpy Mike wrote:val = ?address%
or to poke
?address% = val%
? also works with offsets just like !
works as well.
I am sure I read something about this behavior on https://www.riscosopen.org/forum/ but can't find it now. As much as I like to see the traffic increasing on the forum here, I suggest that you post your question on riscosopen.org.
Very good at first glance. Won't have time to read it carefully until tommorrow. One thing: It becomes really essential to think about how to break up the text for publication in MagPi. Either that, or to convince the MagPi guys to publish a special RISC OS issue. (I am joking, of course.)
[It wasn't meant to be a how-to as in a reference manual - I just wanted it to jump around, with the reader absorbing things almost by accident, the way I learnt things back then. But I'm wondering if I'm heading in the wrong direction! Personally, I like the "guided tour" approach of the...
[ Taken on board the space in RISC OS. Even though I HATE computers shouting in all-caps. And I like CamelCase. And Comic Sans. I was intending to introduce the Task window, but haven't quite reached it yet. I was going to introduce it by discussing *show Alias$@RunType_*, or maybe *modules. We'll ...
Done a bit more, including change to caps of RISCOS Great, you are nearly there. Now put a space between RISC and OS and everyone is happy. :) I read the text more closely, here are some more suggestions: You could put a bit of emphasise on the nature of the right mouse button as a "left-click...
I like the text. After the first brief reading I would like to suggest two or three things. Firstly, the "proper" names for the mouse buttons should be introduced: Select for left, Menu for middle and Adjust for right button. It will makes things easier for new users if they happen to find...
The biggest problem, so far, is that the SocketFS module by Roger Gammans (Aug 1997) does not work. This is very useful for sending short messages between a number of Risc OS computers. It works on an original Acorn Risc PC (Risc OS 3.6, 3.7 and upgraded to 4.01) and on Virtual Acorn (also 4.01). T...
