    February 8, 2012 – New Z80 Assembler for a PC

    February 8, 2012 – New Z80 Assembler for a PC



    Matthew Reed, author of the amazing TRS32 emulator as well as the DSK/DMK Utility TRSTOOLS, has just released Z80Asm, a new Z80 macro assembler for creating TRS-80 CMD files.

    Z80ASM assembles TRS-80 assembly language programs and creates /CMD files that will run on a real or emulated TRS-80, but it runs on the command line of your Windows PC. The assembler is a shareware Windows-based command line utility designed to make it easier to develop TRS-80 software on a Windows computer.

    The unregistered version differs from the registered version in that the unregistered version:

      
  •    Generates only CMD files, not HEX, core image, or COM files
      
  •    Does not generate an equate listing
      
  •    Does not allow reading from or writing to TRS-80 virtual disk files


    Matthew’s Z80ASM page, describing the program and offering a download link, can be found at http://www.trs-80emulators.com/z80asm/.

    Z80ASM can also be downloaded here.
