This is a major reworking of Rainer Kowallik's QL emulator for the
Amiga. Most of the new features have been added by Mark J Swift
(e-mail: msw at blackpool.ac.uk) - Rainer is no-longer involved in
the project. The release includes full assembler source and a QDOS
support disk.

*  FASTER than the original QL
*  LOADS/SAVES to QL floppy disks
*  Hard disk support via QubIDE ROM
*  SOUND supported in full (all possible convolutions of BEEP)
*  SYSTEM VARIABLES movable (even into FAST RAM).
*  2ND-SCREEN fully usable (like MINERVA ROM)
*  SCREEN modes 4 and 8 BOTH supported
*  KEYBOARD history from standard <ALT><ENTER> combination
*  ALL known machines supported A500, A500+, A600, A1200, A4000 etc
*  FOR COMPATIBILITY, data and instruction caches can be enabled/disabled
*  QDOS utilties disk included with release
*  BASED ON a JS ROM with many JS ROM bug fixes.

The Sinclair QL is a black slab-like computer based around Motorola's
68008 micro-processor. The QL was launched as the follow-up to the
ZX Spectrum, aimed at the business market rather than the games market
and was supplied with wordprocessor, spreadsheet, database and charting
programs. It features a fully multi-tasking operating system (QDOS)
and a very good built-in BASIC. The QL failed to achieve the mass-market
appeal of its predecessor, but nevertheless attracted a large dedicated
user base... which is still going strong.


INSTALLING THE EMULATOR

1. Create a directory on your destination volume for the Amiga-QDOS
   binaries and documentation.

2. Make an assignment to this directory as "QLBOOT:". Consider making
   the same assignment in your start-up sequence.

3. Copy the contents of the archive QDOS4amiga1.lha to QLBOOT:

4. Move the contents of QLBOOT:c to your own 'c' directory.


CREATING THE QDOS SUPPORT DISK

Creating the QDOS support disk on an Amiga requires that the xfs
filesystem is mounted. XFS allows access to a multitude of disk
formats including QL (QDOS) disks. XFS is can be found on the aminet
in disk/misc.

1. Mount the xfsd filesystem.

2. Copy QDOS4amiga3.lha to RAM: - or into the same directory
   as 'QLdisk.unLHA'.

3. Double-click on the 'QLdisk.unLHA' icon.
   Insert a blank disk into DF0: at the appropriate moment... then wait.
   Rename the resultant QDOS (QL) disk as 'QLutils:'

Alternatively you could follow the instructions in the file
'QDOS4amiga3.readme' which explains how to create the disk from a CLI.


STARTING THE EMULATOR

1. Double-click on the 'Start_QDOS_UK' icon.

2. Insert QLutils: into DF0: and at the F1/F2 prompt and press F1.
