PhxAss V4.39 is a highly optimizing macro assembler for Motorola's 680x0
CPUs, 6888x FPUs and 68851 MMU (of course, the 030, 040 and 060 MMUs are
also supported). It requires OS2.04 (V37) and 1 MB RAM as minimum.
Most important features:
o PhxAss is FREEWARE.
o Symbolic and Source Level Debugging. Possibility to enable Source
Level Debugging for high level languages too.
o Automatic generation of executables (if possible).
o Creates relocatable Amiga-DOS objects or absolute code (written into
a file (raw or Motorola S-Format), into memory or directly onto disk).
o Small Code and Small Data support (also support for __MERGED sections).
o Listing file, Cross Reference Listing, Equates file.
o Complete floating point support: You can use complex floating point
expressions, including float functions (sine, logarithm, square root,
power, etc.), everywhere in your source, e.g. defining float EQUates or
o Switches for ten different optimizations.
o Locale symbols (xxx$ and .xxx type, also AsmOne-style: global/.local).
o Up to 36 macro parameters.
o Support for Motorola's old and new operand style (even in 68000 mode).
o locale.library usage (english, german, swedish, norwegian, italian,
danish, dutch, hungarian and french ).
o Nearly all directives of the most popular assemblers like Seka, DevPac or
AS (Aztec) are supported. Example: INCBIN, INCDIR, CODE_C, REPT, RS,
RSRESET, EQUR, REG, OFFSET, XDEF, XREF, PUBLIC, OUTPUT ...
o PhxAss is able to stay resident in memory.
You will find two different versions of PhxAss in this distribution:
1. PhxAss: The standard 680x0,FPU,MMU macro assembler.
2. GigaPhxAss: Identical to PhxAss, but source codes are not limited to
65535 lines. Quite useful for assembling huge Reassembler outputs.
CHANGES SINCE PHXASS V4.38 (last Aminet release):
o Some severe bugs, enforcer hits and crashes (when using local symbols,
for example) from V4.38 were fixed. This version was crap... :)
o Fixed (Rn.s) bug in 020+ addressing modes (another 4.38-only bug).
o .x(Rn) and (.x,Rn) generated a syntax error in 020+ mode. The local
symbols/registers were erroneously treated as extensions (and yes,
this is another 4.38-only bug!).
o Access on local symbols from a different block as in AsmOne is possible
by writing: GlobalSym/.LocalSym
o MOVEM accepts numeric constants as register list. Example:
