Macro68 is an assembler that supports the entire Motorola family including
the MC68060, MC68882/030/040 FPU, and MC68851/030/040 MMU. Additional
capability includes the Amiga Copper.
The new Motorola syntax for 030 or later CPUs is supported, and Macro68
includes a utility to convert old-style syntax painlessly. Old syntax is
A unique feature of Macro68 is the use of a shared library, which is always
resident, and allows the use of preassembled resident include files for
incredibly fast assemblies. These may be standard Amiga files, or any
header files may be used. Additionally, a configuration file may be
defined that will set up a particular environment, or insert specific code
in all assemblies.
Most features limited only by available memory. Directives include
Structure Offset for compatibility with the Amiga's interface conventions,
and Frame Offset for easy stack frames. Full listing control and
cross-referencing. Ability to customize directives and run-time messages.
Macro68 is fully re-entrant, and may be made resident. An AREXX(tm)
interface provides "real-time" communication with the editor of your
choice. A number of directives enable Macro68 to communicate with
AmigaDos(tm). External programs may be invoked on either pass, and the
Macro68 is compatible with the directives used by most popular assemblers.
Output file formats include executable object, linkable object, binary
image, pre-assembled symbol tables, and Motorola S records.
