atasm man page

atasm — assembler targeted for the 6502 CPU with Atari-specific features

Synopsis

atasm [options] filename

Description

atasm assembles 6502 code to an Atari DOS executable, an Atari XFD disk image, or a raw binary file.

The syntax used is compatible with the Atari 8-bit assembler MAC/65, with a few extensions (notably 6502 illegal opcode support)

Options

-ofilename

saves the object file to filename instead of sourcefile [.65o]

-Dsymbol=value

Defines symbol to value before assembly begins. This is equivalent to inserting a line like symbol=value before the first line of the source file.

-Idirectory

specifies a search directory for .INCLUDE directives

-v

prints assembly trace.

-s

prints symbol table when assembly is completed.

-u

enables undocumented opcodes.  This is equivalent to using the .OPTILL in the source file.  Notice that this command-line paramter is overriden by any directives  in the source files.

-mfilename

defines the template emulator state file.

-xfilename

saves object file to .XFD image filename

-r

saves object code as a raw binary image

-fvalue

set the raw binary fill byte to value
