============================ DASM 2.20.15-SNAPSHOT readme ============================ Welcome to DASM, a versatile macro assembler with support for several 8-bit microprocessors including MOS 6502 & 6507; Motorola 6803, 68705, and 68HC11; Hitachi HD6303 (extended Motorola 6801) and Fairchild F8. Download the latest compiled & packaged version of DASM from here: https://github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm/releases/latest For a comprehensive User Guide to using DASM, grab: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dasm-assembler/dasm/master/docs/dasm.pdf Other documentation is at: https://raw.github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm/master/doc/dasm.txt This file describes the DASM source distribution, how to compile DASM, and where to get more information. DASM's homepage is https://dasm-assembler.github.io/ --------------- Binary Releases --------------- In case you're running Windows, macOS or Linux and just want to download and use DASM, please go directly to the releases: https://github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm/releases ---------------- The Distribution ---------------- The DASM distribution contains the following important files and directories of interest to all users: docs/ Documentation and manuals docker/ Contains files & instructions to create a docker image to run a 'dasm build machine' container machines/ Support files for various 8-bit machines LICENSE GNU General Public License NEWS Recent changes to DASM README The file you are reading right now :-) In addition, developers are going to be interested in the following files and directories: src/ Source code for DASM and related tools test/ Test cases for DASM and related tools (as of release 2.20.11 the test framework is incomplete) bin/ This is were the compiled executables for DASM and related tools will be placed after you do a 'make' research/ A directory where we keep experiments ChangeLog Source level changes to DASM Makefile Makefile to build DASM executables, run tests, and create distributions Even more files for developers are available from the DASM GitHub repository, see https://github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm for details. --------- Compiling --------- If you are using DASM on a Unix system, you should be able to simply give the command make in the root directory of the DASM distribution and DASM should build. A bin/ directory containing DASM executables will be created as part of this process. You can also give the command make test to run all the test cases that come with the distribution. Note that as of release 2.20.11 the test framework is incomplete and probably only remotely comprehensible for developers. :-/ The often-used NOTE: Several compiler warnings will be displayed during the build process. We are confident that you can ignore these warnings. They will be dealt with in a future release. (And if you know how to fix them reliably, we welcome your contributions!) DASM has been built and tested successfully on recent versions of Linux, macOS, BSD and Windows. If you have successfully built and tested DASM on a different machine or operating system, we would love to hear about it. ---------- Using DASM ---------- The simplest way to get a brief introduction to DASM is to run the bin/dasm executable without options, which will print a short help message summarizing all available options. For a comprehensive User Guide to using DASM, grab: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dasm-assembler/dasm/master/docs/dasm.pdf Documentation for using DASM to produce code for the F8 processor is currently in the directory machines/channel-f/ but will be integrated into the main documentation in the future. Bugs? Feature requests? Please report bugs or feature requests on our dasm project page. See https://github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm All versions of dasm are written in C. If you want to contribute we encourage you to fork dasm and send us pull requests! There is also a vibrant community of developers writing games and demos for the Atari 2600 VCS using DASM. The mailing lists for the Stella emulator are a particularly useful resource for DASM users, not only those intent on programming for the VCS. -------- Legalese -------- the DASM macro assembler (aka small systems cross assembler) Copyright (c) 1988-2002 by Matthew Dillon.
