Is there a way to exit the User-Startup script?

I'm slowly transferring all my applications to another system. And in the process filtering out those I need and what assigns are needed in User-Startup. I thought I would break it and continue work later. The Quit command is used for that. However, I found that although it broke the script, it also...

Re: Hard drive format

Thanks Niels. That looks very helpful. Now if I remembered the boot device variable as I've heard it before it would have saved me editing Kicklayouts. Always the way, after the fact. :-)

How to check and abort a timer request with a soft interrupt

I've been experimenting with soft interrupts perpetuated by a timer.device generated timer interrupt. That is working fine. My problem is, that the normal method of checking with CheckIO() an IORequest and then aborting it with AbortIO() and a WaitIO() if still busy is not working. What I am finding...

Re: WIKI errors for sift.c example in IFFParse Library docs

I'm glad to read this and see people agree with my thoughts about "bracing". In the outside world, or open source world, it is common to split braces so they are out of alignment and the make it a coding rule for any writers. For example: if (expression) { then(); } else { this(); } Now this may be ...

Re: Hard drive format

I got caught in all this when I needed to transfer my XE HDD to my X1000 to transfer all my files. Long story short. The bootloader found my XE AmigaOS volumes and tried to boot off it! I didn't notice at first because all the labels were named "Amiga OS 4.1" something but knew something was wrong w...

Thanks for confirming. Yes the other sections look good to me. Just thought I should report it when I saw it. Or rather, didn't see it, lol. :-)

Hyperion Entertainment user profile is blank

Hi. I logged into the main hyperion-entertainment.biz site. I went to look up my user profile and the page came back blank.

Re: Image preview in ASL requesters

If you were a real amiga user you'd rememeber you don't need to remeber the filename just drop the file on the application or the filerequester. I only have OS3.9 on my real Amiga. ;-) But not all applications work like this. Some are a bit stubborn and don't allow drag and drop. So it's good ASL c...

Re: Prototype definition for soft interrupt is not specified

Thanks colinw. I thought this might be the case that it followed the interruptHandler() prototype. Adding this information to Exec autodoc for Cause() would be beneficial. And other references to soft interrupts in general.

Prototype definition for soft interrupt is not specified

Hi. I'm reading up on soft interrupts and in particular those generated by Cause(). In the wiki there is a soft interrupt example using timer.device to generate a repeating software interrupt. However, the Interrupt structure contains a code as well as data pointer. As can also be given when allocat...
