DDT for MAC/65 Reference Sheet



You would think that at some point, while writing programs for the Diamond GOS using the MAC/65 V1.01 assembler cartridge, I would have learned how to use DDT(Dunion's Debugging Tool). I was much to busy trouble shooting the programs to read the manual.

It wasn't until reading Atari Roots by Mark Andrews that learning DDT seemed advantageous.

Now that the manual has been read, DDT will be used. But the question remains, How many commands will be remembered when next it is used? (As often as the manual was referenced to create my DDT command reference sheet, I'm thinking, maybe the arrow keys.)

It should be about 6 months from now, when I find out if there is enough information to jog my memory. Its comforting to know the manual is still on the shelf.
