QL Software Downloads

Download logo  

Most of the packages on this site are in zip file format - QL Zip and Unzip packages are available from the Archivers page on this site, and current versions can also be obtained from the website of the official maintainer of the QDOS Info-zip package, Jonathan Hudson. Note that if QL programs are unzipped using non-QDOS versions of Unzip, the QDOS executable file header will usually be lost and the programs may not work as intended.

All the software packages here are for the Sinclair QL computer and its compatibles, unless otherwise stated.

Broken executables, lost dataspaces and executable file headers after unzipping in Windows (program gives a "bad parameter" error after unzipping in non-QDOS environment), etc - have a look at this blog post.
