DASM readme

Welcome to DASM, a versatile macro assembler with support for several
8-bit microprocessors including MOS 6502 & 6507; Motorola 6803, 68705,
and 68HC11; Hitachi HD6303 (extended Motorola 6801) and Fairchild F8.

Download the latest compiled & packaged version of DASM from here:

Other documentation is at:

This file describes the DASM source distribution, how to compile DASM,
and where to get more information.

DASM's homepage is https://dasm-assembler.github.io/

Binary Releases

In case you're running Windows, macOS or Linux and just want to download
and use DASM, please go directly to the releases:

The Distribution

The DASM distribution contains the following important files and
directories of interest to all users:

docs/ Documentation and manuals
docker/ Contains files & instructions to create a docker
image to run a 'dasm build machine' container
machines/ Support files for various 8-bit machines
LICENSE GNU General Public License
NEWS Recent changes to DASM
README The file you are reading right now :-)

In addition, developers are going to be interested in the following
files and directories:

src/ Source code for DASM and related tools
test/ Test cases for DASM and related tools
(as of release 2.20.11 the test framework is incomplete)
bin/ This is were the compiled executables for DASM and
related tools will be placed after you do a 'make'
research/ A directory where we keep experiments
ChangeLog Source level changes to DASM
Makefile Makefile to build DASM executables, run tests, and
create distributions

Even more files for developers are available from the DASM GitHub
repository, see https://github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm for details.


If you are using DASM on a Unix system, you should be able to simply
give the command


in the root directory of the DASM distribution and DASM should build.
A bin/ directory containing DASM executables will be created as part
of this process. You can also give the command

make test

to run all the test cases that come with the distribution. Note that
as of release 2.20.11 the test framework is incomplete and probably
only remotely comprehensible for developers. :-/ The often-used

NOTE: Several compiler warnings will be displayed during the build
process. We are confident that you can ignore these warnings.
They will be dealt with in a future release. (And if you know
how to fix them reliably, we welcome your contributions!)

DASM has been built and tested successfully on recent versions of Linux,
macOS and Windows.

If you have successfully built and tested DASM on a different machine
or operating system, we would love to hear about it.

Using DASM

The simplest way to get a brief introduction to DASM is to run the
bin/dasm executable without options, which will print a short help
message summarizing all available options.

For a comprehensive User Guide to using DASM, grab:

Documentation for using DASM to produce code for the F8 processor
is currently in the directory machines/channel-f/ but will be
integrated into the main documentation in the future.

Bugs? Feature requests?
Please report bugs or feature requests on our dasm project page.
See https://github.com/dasm-assembler/dasm
All versions of dasm are written in C. If you want to contribute
we encourage you to fork dasm and send us pull requests!

There is also a vibrant community of developers writing games and
demos for the Atari 2600 VCS using DASM. The mailing lists for the
Stella emulator are a particularly useful resource for DASM users,
not only those intent on programming for the VCS.
