Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

I doubt that Dropbox or OneDrive would work because I don't think their shared links take you directly to the file. Your ISP may provide a little web space, mine does and that's what I'm using. Ok so how did you arrange this? Is this with your web site using port forwarding or did you somehow arran...

Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

https://www.bbcbasic.co.uk/bbcsdl/wasm/bbcsdl.html?dir=/usr&load=<myURL> So with such a link would I use a Dropbox link for my code? Would One Drive link work? It appears that this runs in my browser but does your site use up more band width for the above link? It seems to be hosting the sand box a...

Ceefax - can you help? I might be the most unlikely person to be able to get a final solution to this BUT I have made programs in the past that could create a HTML and CSS pages using a program generator. Here is what I have discovered: What a person can do is do a line scan at the front of each li...

Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

I am making enquiries. I assume that you can write to a file using this IDE? Lets say I am managing data? Or is all the files I see being fetched also? I gather that it disappears after such a file might be created? If BBC Basic is operating in this medium, could I also maybe use your method within...

Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

I've built an experimental in-browser (WebAssembly) edition of BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 which will currently run in Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome That is extremely cool. Caught my attention fast when I seen it in my email.... WHOA!! * I tried to paste some code / text and couldn't figure that out y...

Re: CPU usage: a cautionary tale

Because it's (quite unnecessarily) inside the loop it gets executed around 25 times a second
Interesting.

Re: Question:Pulse width modulation ( 12 volt winch motor relay control)

How about an NE555 and a transistor? Smaller, cheaper and more reliable than an Arduino! I will be using a Raspberry Pi3 as I have the touch screen and can easily mount it. I have Arduinos and Attiny85 chip and have programmed them both. I prefer RPI3 because its easier to program and interface wit...

Re: Question:Pulse width modulation ( 12 volt winch motor relay control)

Isn't this overkill? There must be conventional hardware speed controllers available (which may well work by pulse-width modulation, like dimmers often do) which would be simpler and potentially much more reliable. There is an idea I have been using for isolating voltages in lower voltage DC batter...

Re: Hosting Annual Renewal

As another option, I can also buy another edition of BBC4W to assist for costs of running this forum. Richard, if this is ok I can even make it so it helps a person who is under me personally. I do have some people who are close to me that could use a full version of BBC4W and that could be a win wi...
