Re: Z80 asm/disasm in Z80 asm, request

yay, it is really great! by adding several i/o routines and very dumb expression parser (because it is using the same expression parser as the rest of the system) it correctly parsed "ld a,42", and even printed the generated machine code! of course, it is far from being usable yet, but it looks real...

Re: Z80 asm/disasm in Z80 asm, request

Russell's Z80 BBC Basic became opensourced . and it seems to contan full-featured assembler. i quickly scanned the sources, and they seem to be very well written. so i will look if i'll be able to rip asm module. stay tuned, i will report here if i succeed converting it into some...

Re: dsForth/TR-DOS

added floating point support (with ROM calculator), including full-featured float<->string conversions (using calculator routines, so "42E18" can be parsed, and "4.2E+19" will be printed. i guess we're very close to 0.2.0 public release. ;-) p.s.: don't expect the current development speed to stay t...

Re: dsForth/TR-DOS

sorry for spamming with posts (this topic starting to look more like a developer blog, lol). so i finished converting dsForth to DTC. with DTC, each Forth word is one byte bigger, but each code word is two bytes smaller. it looks like they compenstates each other, so the image size is roughly the sa...

Re: dsForth/TR-DOS

oops. i could never remember which one is direct threaded code, and which one is indirect. ;-) AberForth is using inderect variant, and so does dsForth. DTC is slightly faster, so i'm converting dsForth to DTC. it will prolly cost additional 100-300 bytes for the whole system. not a big deal, and si...

Re: dsForth/TR-DOS

thank you! yay, direct threaded code... something i planned to do too. i should take a look. also, dsForth can work on 48K too. i am the best! ;-) sadly I'm not a Forth programmer :( my level is more for Logo or so). Forth is even easier than Logo. no, really, i still can't learn Logo, it is too com...
