This is the QLOAD / QREF SuperBASIC Utility, produced by Liberation Software for the Sinclair QL Home Computer.

QLOAD / QREF is the work of Ian Stewart and Adrian Soundy at Liberation Software.

It adds several commands to SuperBASIC:

  • QSAVE / QLOAD / QLRUN / QMERGE - these replace the standard SuperBASIC commands, SAVE / LOAD / LRUN and MERGE with a fast load version of these commands.  A fast load version of software stores the current SuperBASIC program on microdrive or disk in a tokenised format (instead of plain text), meaning that they can be loaded in a fraction of the time to load a normal SuperBASIC program.

    Unlike some of the earlier fast load routines, the tokenised programs can be loaded into any QL or QL emulator (some of the earlier routines refused to load if the amount of memory on a system was different).

    Files saved with QSAVE can also be used by Q-Liberator for compiling, rather than using the normal two step compilation process.

    The QSAVE / QLOAD and QLRUN commands were also included in SMSQ/e.
  • QREF_xx commands which inspect the current SuperBASIC program loaded in memory and returns a list of lines where specified variables, functions, procedures or machine code vommands appear in the listing, making it easier to change references.  You can even use a command in conjunction with the Toolkit II ED command to jump to the next occurance of a specific keyword.


Supplied on 3.5" disk with printed manual.  Shipped from Germany.
