Help with linking XB and assembly

Recommended Posts

The XB loader does not understand the REF directive. Therefore you cannot REF the VDP utilities and things like KSCAN. :(

 

You must state their addresses with EQU directives. :mad:

 

Of course, all the utilities are at a different address to TI BASIC/ED-AS, and I'm afraid I don't have them for XB.

 

Anyway, that is the reason for the run-time error.

 

HTH

Ah hah! Now that makes senses. Any idea where the XB addresses are listed?

Smart Programmer found on WHT has them -- I'd scan the page but I don't have access to them right now. Good thing Wills brought those up -- I had forgotten about those stupid EQUate requirements! DOH!

 

Found them in the March 84 issue. Thanks! One problem though: CALL INIT does not load GPLLNK or DSRLNK... Bummer...

There is a joke in here somewhere. Perhaps how many TI programmers does it take to RTFM... ;-)

Zero. They're all busy writing crap games. ;)

BTW, I'll wager you'll find GPLLNK and DSRLNK for XB in another issue. Load those first and voila!

There are quite a few issues, but they are really interesting. It'll take me a while to wade through all of them.
