Never heard of the ESA before. It's amazing that he (she?) is still updating this in 2008! I think I'll stick to ASM-One 1.48 myself, though the ESA does look useful.

Speaking of assemblers; anyone know of any cross assemblers for 680x0 and AmigaOS on Windows, or perhaps just some simple editor with related syntax highlighting? Have to say even a standard edit box in Windows is a lot more comfortable than the ASM-one editor.

If it's too strong, you are too weak! ;)

If you change to ASM Pro you can join the "Sissie" club [according to StingRay ;) ], because it has adequate syntax highlighting.

Zero: you can check vasm from Frank Wille, it's near 100% compatible to PhxAss. The only thing it lacks is REPT/ENDR support.
Source code is available but you may need GCC and GNU make to compile it.

Hi ZEROblue,

I just wanted to say that ESA is *not* an assembler and that... yes, it's "he" ("Simone" is masculine in Italian).

If anybody has tried ESA, I'll be glad to hear his/her comments ;)

Assembler: my favourite: PhxAss (http://aminet.net/package/dev/asm/PhxAss); a lot of people likes Asm-Pro (http://aminet.net/package/dev/asm/AsmPro).

Documentation: if you are not new to assembly programming, all you need is the M68k Programmer's Reference Manual from Motorola (item code: M680000PM/AD) or something like that; if you are new to assembly programming, then you also need some guide that teaches you how to code (and think) in assembly - look around the web. Oh, well, I said "all", but indeed also the MC680x0 User Manuals are useful for advanced programming.
As regards the Amiga chipset and OS, you already have the RKMs, which is a good starting point. However, those don't cover the AGA chipset (for which home-made documentation is available on the Internet).

Tutorials: never read any, so I cannot help :p

Angelheart:

http://cyberpingui.free.fr/rsources.htm has plenty of old source codes to study, and ofcourse there are plenty of knowledgeable people in this forum.

Good luck with the coding.
