Amiga assembler!

Post by RetrogamerRhys » Tue Jan 14, 2020 4:20 pm

I've been wanting to get into assembler on the Amiga 500 using the 68000 cpu, can anyone recommend any decent books or resources and an assembler to use?

I use VASM for my amiga assembly, I know the author is a big 68000 fan, and I think 68000 is VASM's strong point.

There's some notes on the amiga on my site here:

This is the best Amiga document I've come across

It's not a 'complete' answer though, I've had to use various other documents here and there... if you have any specific questions, I'll have a look through my documents folder, and see what can answer your questions

Hello, is VASM an assembler that runs in Windows and creates code for emulators to run or does VASM run on the actual Amiga 500 itself? If it doesn't run on the Amiga itself can you direct me to a assembler that does. Thanks

VASM runs on windows... I'm afraid never had an Amiga in my youth, and these days I only do cross compilation, so I cannot recommend a native Amiga Assembler

There's a list of Amiga based assemblers on this page:

If you find one that you can recommend, please report back with an update!

I've come across the Devpac 3 assembler, anyone know how much these go for online? Im thinking about making an offer on one with the manual.
