6502bench currently has one tool, the SourceGen disassembler.
The best place to start is to work through the tutorials. Launch the program, hit F1 to open the documentation (which is just a set of HTML pages viewed in your web browser), then click on the Tutorials link. Various sample projects are included in the distribution.
Changes since last stable release:
- Added support for the 64tass cross-assembler.
- Generalized assembler configuration. Added ability to configure assembly output column widths.
- Added options for auto-generated-label naming.
- Added more detail to cross-reference window.
- Added Ctrl+W (format one or more bytes as 16-bit words).
- Minor tweaks and fixes; see the Change Log for details.
The program is written in C# .NET with the WinForms API. The attached binaries have been tested on Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 10. There is no installer; just unzip the files somewhere convenient and double-click
SourceGen.exe to start the program.
While potentially compatible with Mono, tests with Mono 5.18 on Linux turned up a number of severe issues that will need to be worked around. Linux and Mac OS X are therefore not supported at this time.
IMPORTANT: on Windows you must have .NET Framework v4.6.2 or later installed. Most Windows systems will already have this, but if you have trouble getting the app to start, you may need to install it. You can download it directly from Microsoft, at https://www.microsoft.com/net/download/dotnet-framework-runtime .
If you want to build the sources yourself, clone the git repository and open
WorkBench.sln in Visual Studio 2017. I used the free-to-download Community Edition for development.
