Oasis - cross platform z80 assembler
« on: July 05, 2010, 03:21:13 am »
I am currently working on making a z80 assembler for linux that i will be naming Oasis :) I hope to have almost all assembler syntax's out there so you dont have to change source files much. Currently i only have accessing the files, but hopefully i can start on the actual assembling soon :)

Nice, and syntax for all current assemblers is a must, especially for people using old routines on ticalc.org. Good luck on this project :)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

yeah that's something that's always irked me about other assemblers all their different syntax's

EDIT: ok, so I just finished getting includes to work, the assembler will now include files with relative paths using these syntax's:
Code: [Select]
#include "file.inc"
#INCLUDE "file.inc"
.include "file.inc"
.INCLUDE "file.inc"
any that I forgot?
I'm going to get rid of commented lines next :)

Cool :D

Sadly I can't help but when it includes all syntaxes it will sure make things easier for people learning ASM.
* DJ Omnimaga wonders why most assemblers uses different ASM syntaxes? Shouldn't they have all used the original 83+ ASM syntax?

I think the problem might be, that while all the calculators use the same code, all the compilers can be totally different but still compile correct code for the calculator, so there is no standard?

I think it's what builderboy said.
anywho, updates: it has some error handling, so like if the input file doesn't exist, or an include file doesn't it will error and quit, if the output exists it will warn you, if the output exists and is a .asm, .z80 or .inc it will error. If you don't put any arguements it will give a small help, if you type in --help as the main arguement it will give you the help menu if you give --version it will output the current version.
the assembler will now get rid of fully commented lines, I probably should tackle other comments as well...but they will be harder.

Oasis should actually work on windows with a few small changes :D so I might be multi system :P

Multi system would be great :D Im not much of an assembler myself, but i can appreciate a well built program 8)

lol, thanks :) well hopefully it works well, I'll have to figure out condidtional statements and such for the compiler to make sure you can compile for both systems from one source :)

Errors are bolded now too, and all the assemblers steps are bolded blue :)

EDIT: If anybody wants to checkout a working copy I have a svn repository setup here: https://oasis-assembler.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

Yay for more updates and I am happy you're back into calc stuff (/me was worried when all Eeems was updating was jBOS/Jbasic). I can't test, tho, since I only use Windows

Yeah, well I was for a while, but it's hard to move away from calcs for long :P I might eventually especially since I need to learn C++ for when I want to make money x.x
Oh and it shouldn't be too hard to port it to windows actually, you just need to make a few small changes :)

anyways, crosspost from Cemetech:
If anybody wants to develop this alongside me, go ahead and join the project on google [LINK], I got svn working with eclipse so I can work alongside people. Oh, and I was wondering if anybody wanted to do the work to make this windows compatable? linke adding in all the little changes (id: #ifdef _WIN32) to make it compile with windows. I have an icon that I will use on windows, but since I'm developing on linux, I can't really do anything to test it :P

I still hope if you move to C that you still do some calc stuff from time to time. Hopefully you could get a new calc at one point too when you turn 18 since your parents won't be allowed to take it away then. It would also suck if you stopped visiting Omni altogether x.x

Btw, does the google project page means you are going to quit announcing updates on Cemetech and Omni? Or will you keep us updated here too? Some ppl might not check there everyday and on those forums everyone gets notified of updates.
