Thread: Assembly language program development on a Mac Plus

  1. #1

    Default Assembly language program development on a Mac Plus

    I have an old Mac Plus kicking around here, that I'd like to use to write some 68000 assembly language programs on. Is it possible to use this box for development? Is there an assembler available that will run on this platform?

    Seems like MPW should fit the bill.

    Two assemblers from that era are MacASM by Yves Lempereur and the MDS from Apple.

    The documentation required to effectively program the Macintosh in any language is not trivial. You will need at minimum Inside Macintosh volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4. You should also have the Motorola 68000 Manual (this was included with MDS). I also recommend The Complete Book of Macintosh Assembly Language Programming, volumes 1 and 2 by Dan Weston.
