I have DASM set up on my Mac enough to complain at me.
I have dasm in the "bin" folder. Simply stating "dasm" just brings up a unrecognized file.
"open dasm" brings up the list of commands and works, till I try to do a command string, then it just breaks.
So I have dasm and the source.asm in the same "bin" directory. I drag dasm into terminal, then I drag the assembly code into terminal, then I type what I believe you should type after that -f3 (format 2600 I presume) then -name.bin for a output binary.
And I get this. Can someone help me on what is happening or needs to happen?
