uQLx & TCP/IP Documents

Last Updated: 04.03.2017

HTML Documents from Richard Zidlicky and Jonathan Hudson about the uQLx emulator and the TCP/IP Socket functionality. Originally introduced for uQLx, much of the TCP/IP document is valid for other QL emulators such as QPC2, SMSQmulator and the registered version of QemuLator which include similar functionality. I suggest you start with the Table Of Contents document to make it easier to find what you are looking for. There is also the QL Socket package (96K) for C68 from Jonathan Hudson, available on the Internet And Email page.

Simple use from BASIC - a short article showing how to open TCP channels from QL BASIC, and example listings in BASIC showing how to download an html page or read email headers (D. Jones)
Read as a PDF file (251K), or Word .docx file (22K).

Networking terminology - a glossary of some of the more common terms you are likely to come across while tinkering with networking.

Using IP from assembler - Martin Head's notes, in zipped Word .doc and .pdf files (239K)
http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/internet/index.html - Martin Head's IPbasic package, a SuperBASIC interface for using IP.

Martin Head also wrote some articles about using IP from BASIC in Quanta magazine (June-September 2016 issues, Volume 33 issues 3 and 4), where he discusses how to create simple client/server chat programs and presents several example listings in QL BASIC.

Please note: It's been pointed out that the emulators do not have a TCP/IP stack per se, they are just mirroring the socket interface of the host computer to the emulated side. Please bear that in mind while reading the documents.
