Fedora Update Notification
2015-01-05 06:07:16

Name        : xa
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 2.3.7
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : http://www.floodgap.com/retrotech/xa/
Summary     : 6502/65816 cross-assembler
Description :
xa is a high-speed, two-pass portable cross-assembler. It understands
mnemonics and generates code for NMOS 6502s (such as 6502A, 6504, 6507,
6510, 7501, 8500, 8501, 8502 ...), CMOS 6502s (65C02 and Rockwell R65C02)
and the 65816.

Key amongst its features:

    * C-like preprocessor (and understands cpp for additional feature support)
    * rich expression syntax and pseudo-op vocabulary
    * multiple character sets
    * binary linking
    * supports o65 relocatable objects with a full linker and relocation suite,
      as well as "bare" plain binary object files
    * block structure for label scoping

Update Information:

updated to 2.3.7
- Buffer overflow and test failures with gcc 4.9 fixed (thanks Adam Sampson for the patch).
- The 65816 mvn and mvp instructions now take the standard syntax (thanks Alessandro Gatti for the report and the test vector). The old 16-bit argument syntax is still accepted, but is deprecated, and will generate a warning.
- The copyright string is no longer emitted to the error log, simplifying the testsuite.
- Improvements to the build system.
- Spurious messages removed.
- Testsuite expanded and more exhaustive.
- Documentation updated.
