QL Tools for HxC

This is a version of qltools modified to operate directly on .hfe files as used by the HxC floppy emulator. It will need the libhxcfe.dll from the http://hxc2001.free.fr/floppy_drive_emulator/index.html  this is available by downloading and extracting the HxCFloppyEmulator software. (Graeme Gregory).

Related to the QL Tools for HxC is a DOS batch copy routine by Ian Johnston, to copy files to an SD card image using the Windows exe version of QLTools (command line) with the HxC floppy emulator, .HFE files. Hopefully of use to HxC users, as the QLTools currently has no facility to process batches of files.

The HxC is a floppy disk emulator system, based on an SD card system which plugs into a QL and pretends (as far as the QL is concerned) to be a floppy disk drive, bu the files are held in an image file on the SD card. A small screen on the HxC interface lets you choose which image to use. Rich Mellor has provided a simple guide to this device at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/manuals/index.html

How To Use The HxC

Rich Mellor has kindly sent me an article showing how to use the HxC floppy disc emulator. The HxC device connects to a standard QL floppy disk interface and allows you to use an SD card to store floppy disk images for use with your QL. The instructions are available to download as a PDF file from the Replacement Manuals page on my website at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/manuals/Sinclair%20QL%20How%20To%20Use%20HxC%20Article.pdf
