Nemo has created a slideshow in turbo pascal for Amstrad CPC+ including astronaut quotes : see on Youtube on his channel. The screenshots has been converted with ConvImgCPC by Ludovic Deplanque.
He also wrote a pascal framework (TP-tools v0.2 with its documentation), the objective is to have a v1.0 with more pascal units, for Amstrad CPC and CPC+. TP-Tools v0.2 is actually organized in 4 units :
- UGraph.inc : graphics management
- USound.inc : sound management
- UKBoard.inc: keyboard and joystick management
- UAsic.inc : ASIC CPC+ management
Other pascal units will be added in the future v1.0 (UCrt, USprite, ...).
The bug was found by Velus on CPCRulez. In a basic program, type the following ligne : 10 rem |era,"toto.txt" (on a french 464 the | is replace by ù). Next RUN the program or edit the ligne (EDIT 10) and validate with return. Last look at the progam with the LIST command, the character after the | (or ù) has been removed.
