Help with VICE and Aart Bik's compiler- Just back in the group

Postby vicassembly » Sun May 28, 2017 7:26 pm

Please bear with me and let me preface by stating I was fairly active back in 2010 and 2011 using Power20 and cc65 on an old windows machine. Life happens and we now have 8 year old twins and I am getting the Vic bug again.

A couple of questions. I downloaded VICE for my Mac and have NO IDEA how to even load a program.

I downloaded Aart Bik's compiler and started by writing the hello.s program to get a compile. At this point I have no idea how to even run this in VICE. Wow, I miss power20 but it appears that stopped working years ago. Any help with beginner VICE would be appreciated.

Secondly, does anyone have a fairly complex piece of 6502 using Aart's format? I have some old cc65 stuff but I don't think that works on Mac.

Ok. Thanks for indulging me. I will try to add more productive communication in the near future.

use either "xvic foo.prg" on commandline, or start xvic and just drop the .prg into the window

and... cc65 toolchain IS available for osx, of course :)

Thanks for the help. I have cc65 running as well as the Cocoa VICE 3.1. I am on the verge of starting some more programming!!
