QL-PC Fileserver

QL-PC Fileserver and QL-PC Fileserver II is a program which was written by DiRen and subject to you having a cable or Amadeus Interlink to connect the two computers, allows you to access the PC's hardware as though it were part of the native QL hardware.

This means that you can transfer files and store them on the PC (under DOS), output to printers connected to the PC, display up to 8 screens on the PC and even use the PC keyboard to control the QL.

New devices are created on the QL which directly access the PC's disk drives, for example DIR PCD1_ displays the directory in the PC Drive A:, and QLA_SET allows you to point a directory device QLA1_ (to QLA8_) at a specific DOS directory path.
