I see no point in continuing it.  ZDS works alright under Wine, and I'm working on an SH3 compiler anyway.

I personally am sad to see yet another assembler go unfinished :(

However, while it is true that the competition may be or eventually be better, sometimes reinventing the wheel is good.  The most important thing is to learn from these things -- I really doubt any of you had the intention of filing this under US copyright law and selling it at $4.99 on an app store, to promote a multi-billion dollar software powerhouse.  These types of programs prepare you for those circumstances though, I've heard -- those who DO reinvent the wheel know how to improve upon it better ;) and maybe even get inspiration to make an engine powered wheel set.  I live by many 30 year old Computer Scientists -- and they say that they would have either done much better if they did take the time to finish their aspiring programs before heading into industry for learning's sake, or they DID do well because they did.  :)  Just to show that while I can't give 1st hand experience, I can give 2nd hand experience learned the hard way.

So whether or not you do continue, best of wishes ;)  And if you do, good luck, I hope your version of the wheel is much faster (see what I did there with my overall metaphor?) ;D

Sorry to hear Eeems. Make sure to not delete the topics if you delete the sub-forum, though. just move them. Also is it because there are many others assemblers available?
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

Yes, I plan not to delete any of the topics.
It's because I don't think I'm really ready to tackle a project like this in C++, my code isn't quite as good as it should be and the current system probably could take a complete rewrite. I also just can't get into the code whenever I work on it, so it's kind of a waste for me to still "work" on it.

Sorry to hear that this project is discontinued! :(
This is really an epic project - I especially like the ZDS compatibility part!
Yes, you could say that it's reinventing the wheel - but ZDS *barely* works, and I would prefer a native solution rather than scouring the internet trying to find some obscure assembler, then running it in a shabby emulator. :P

I can understand your frustration with C++... try porting wabbitemu to linux, and you'll know what I mean! :P

Oh well.... at least it's open source, and (hopefully) anyone could contribute to it anytime. :)
Best wishes to this project, and I hope that one day it'll be picked up again.

I could make a cross platform Assembler quite easily. Deep Thought made one in Python. To make files all we need is binpac8x (by Kerm Martian), polish it, I can make a GUI and voilá! Z80 Assembler cross-platform.

Sorry to know you gave it up Eeems.

To be honest, I can never get your python programs to work Scout.

In Windows, I can even create exe files. For other operating systems, you just need to cd to the right directory and then type python filename.py. In most Linux distributions Python comes pre installed, so I guess Python is becoming really popular no, and there are no problems with it. It's a client problem I'm sure.
