QH is a system for storing file headers for executable QDOS programs on non-QDOS formatted media. We have all run into the problem of managing to copy QL programs onto the native hard drive or floppy disks of another computer, only to find that the programs won't execute from there due to the loss of the file type byte and dataspace value. QH stores the dataspace of such QDOS programs in a separate short "_qh" file, enabling you to restore this header later via a simple short SuperBASIC program, ready to execute. The main program can either create QH files for all programs on a given drive or in a given directory, or scan through all sub-directories creating "_qh" entries for all executable programs. (D. Jones) (6K) [05/07/05]
