xx Adapting 'ceefax.bbc' for Sport Headlines
« Thread started on: Mar 19th, 2018, 2:11pm »

The Ceefax emulator program supplied with BBCSDL (all editions) uses the BBC's News RSS feeds as its source of data. The BBC also provides Sport RSS feeds but the program doesn't make use of those. To do so fully would really mean a completely new program, but here are step-by-step instructions (for the mobile editions) for the minor change of replacing the News Headlines page with Sport Headlines:
  1. Start BBC Basic and tap on general.

  2. Long-press on ceefax.bbc and select Copy from the menu.

  3. Tap on @usr$ then long-press beneath the list and select Paste file from the menu.

  4. Tap [back] to return to the previous screen.

  5. Scroll up then long-press beneath the list of files; select List all files from the menu.

  6. Scroll down, long press on ceefax.car then Copy.

  7. Tap on @usr$ then long-press beneath the list and select Paste file from the menu.

  8. Long press on ceefax.bbc and select Edit from the menu; the editor will open.

  9. Scroll up to the first DATA line (about 90 lines) and edit news to sport.

  10. Tap [back] and confirm Yes to 'Save changes to ceefax.bbc?'.
That's all there is to it! If you now run the modified version, in @usr$, Page 101 should be Sport Headlines rather than News Headlines.

Richard.
