Softronic Tools

Although not sold under the title Softronic Tools, we have listed these three programs under that name, as they were advertised together on one microdrive cartridge by Softronic of Finland, in the back of the QL User magazine (June 1985).

The tools were:

  • SORT - a lightning fast sort for integers, floating point numbers and strings (sort 1000 random floating point numbers in less than 1.3 seconds)
  • FILE - shortened commands for file handling routines (LD, SV, RH, SH, SZ, MN, ASC, DEC, HEX, HEAP, HEAP-DA)
  • FILEDUMP - a file handling utility which could hold more than 80 files in memory at the same time, and then allow you to LOAD, FIND, CHANGE, MODIFY, SAVE, PRINT, ABS and INFORM

All programs were written in machine code as SuperBASIC resident machine code functions and procedures, and supplied with a fully documented source code listing.
