DAS DCPU-16 Assembler
This is a command-line assembler, written in C, for the DCPU-16 processor; if you don't know what that is, see http://0x10c.com/
I don't like reading! Shut up and give me binaries!
Okay, sheesh. [Binaries for Linux, Windows and Mac OSX are here] (https://github.com/jonpovey/das/downloads).
I like reading. Tell me about it.
- Agressively optimised short literals, even when they depend on complicated expressions involving symbols
- Spec 1.7 compliant
- Compile-time constant expressions supporting symbols and most C arithmetic and bitwise operators, e.g.
SET A, [(labelA - labelB) * 0xff >> 3] DAT label + 2
- Strings support C escape sequences e.g.
.equfor explicit symbols
[SP + const]/[SP++]stack styles and will translate and print either style
- Little/big endian output switch (default little-endian)
- Accepts lowercase opcodes and register names
- Pretty printed annotated assembly dump shows machine code and optional PC. Example showing some short literal optimisation and a combined P-string / C-string:
0000 :a1 SET A, a2 + 0x20 - b2 ; 7c01 001f 0002 :b1 0002 :a2 SET A, a1 + 0x20 - b1 ; fc01 0003 :b2 0003 :pstring DAT after - cstring - 1 ; 000a 0004 :cstring DAT "ten chars!\0" 0004 ; 0074 0065 006e 0020 0063 0068 0061 0072 000c ; 0073 0021 0000 000f :after
das with no arguments to get something like this:
BlueDAS DCPU-16 Assembler, version 0.13 Latest and docs at: https://github.com/jonpovey/das Usage: das [OPTIONS] asmfile OPTIONS: -o outfile Write binary to outfile, default das-out.bin -v, --verbose Be more chatty (normally silent on success) -d, --dump Dump human-readable listing to stdout --dumpfile file Dump to file instead --no-dump-pc Omit PC column from dump; makes dump a valid source file --sp-style Dump [SP] style for stack access. Default PUSH/POP style --le Generate little-endian binary (default big-endian) The character '-' for files means read/write to stdin/stdout instead.
How do I install it?
make install if you're compiling (works for me on Linux + GCC, anything else:
If using the precompiled binaries, Linux and Windows users just copy the executable somewhere in your PATH, or wherever you like.
#0x10x-dev user 'startling' contributed an install script for OSX users who
homebrew installed. I can't vouch for this but you might like to try
brew install https://raw.github.com/gist/2664491/das.rb
It looks pretty cool but I wish it could...
Email me or raise an issue on github. I just might prioritise it.
Shortcomings / TODO list
- Better syntax error messages
- Include files
- Local symbols
- Relocation and linking; extern and global symbols
- Aim to support llvm-dcpu16

This project includes GPLv2 parts from the Linux kernel, so I suppose I'll release it GPLv2.
