Macro Assembler and Text Editor for PET, Apple, SYM and Others

 

These manuals explain Text Editor (TED) Features of commands and entry or deletion of text. They also provide assembly features like source statement syntax, label files, assembling from or not from tape, creating a relocatable object file, MACROS, conditional assembly and default parameters on entry to ASSM. Examples of listing illustrating text entry and output listing from ASSM are included. The manuals are meant specifically for PET, APPLe and SYM computers.

This 6502 relocating Macro assembler (ASSM) and text editor (TED) resides simultaneously in approximately 8k bytes of memory. THe ASSM/TED can be loaded into RAM or stored in ROM memory. Sufficient memory must be provided for not only the ASSM/TED but for a text file and label file. About 2k of memory is required for the text file for small programs or larger programs if it was to be assembled from tape. The manual suggests that a good rule of thumb is one byte of memory for the label file for each byte of object code.

Also included with these manuals were PET Communication with the Outside World and EHS Software booklets.
