Assembly Editor 8x
Posted by Kirk on 6 July 1999, 03:45 GMT

Ahmed El-Helw has announced that he is creating an assembly editor - similar to Assembly Studio 86 - for the Z80 series of calculators (82, 83, 85, and 86) and possibly a version for the M68000 (89 and 92) as well. Features will include full syntax highlighting (not just labels and comments) as well as size and T-state count utilities. The program is being written in Delphi, and the estimated release date is the first week of August.

Full Syntax Highlighting?

In my opinion, highlighting instructions different colors would get in the way while programming. Assembly is supposed to be bland! :)

Though I don't see the point in writing another editor for Z80, when Assembly Studio 86 already provides an editor and an assembler. In fact, I wrote 82/83 plugins for it last night, so you could use it for any z80 calc.

I think you'd get a lot more user support if you concentrated on 68k, as there's no good editor for it. But since you're doing it as a learning experience, it's best to go with what you know.

Also i hear that the GameBoy plugin for ASM studio works quite well...

Naw, if I really cared, I would write a Z80 editor. One that uses a custom edit control so it wouldn't be slow, and that automatically interfaces with an emulator, and that allows the creating of projects and the use of modular variables. But if I'm gonna write programs for the PC... I'm gonna get _paid_!

Do your thing :), I never did like ASM studio 86 because the sprite editor never worked.

Ahmed, it would be great if you linked a "run" button with that ti emulator for windows, I'm one of those coders who wants the result every 30'th line ! Keep up the good work !

If people are interested in an m68k editor/assembler/linker, go to www.technoplaza.net. I'm developing a program (which ironically is named Assembly Studio too, but that was before I heard of Assembly Studio 86...) which will edit documents, provide syntax highlighting and add help texts with function syntax and the like.

It's being written in C++ for all those who complained about Delphi. Delphi is a little slower than C++, but I hear it's an okay language.

The first public beta is already out, and work is in progress on the help file to add some useful things to it. :->
