A Portable 65xx Development System

As65, Lk65 and Lb65 form a portable development toolset for 65xx, 65C02 and 65816 assembly language programming. All of the programs are coded in Java (using JDK 1.4.2) and should execute on any compatible JDK or JRE environment that has the JAXP (XML processing) package and a SAX parser (included in the standard SUN Java distribution). All of the tools are provided as compiled Java classes in a ZIP file (65xx.zip).

To run the commands in a DOS window you need some simple batch scripts to invoke java and tell it what class to execute. It will look similar to this

@java -cp 65xx.zip uk.co.demon.obelisk.w65xx.As65 %*

If you change the position of the batch script relative to the JAVA 65xx.zip file then the command will fail unless you update the script or copy the zip.

I haven't provided scripts for a UNIX environment, but they would be very similar, something like:

#! /bin/sh
java -cp 65xx.zip uk.co.demon.obelisk.w65xx.As65 $*

You can download a copy of the development package and some example files from the link on the 6502 Downloads page.
