These software tools are 100% homemade; they are written in C, for Windows, compiled with Visual Studio Express 2013. The code is probably portable to other platforms.
All source and executable are given “AS IS” without any licence. I have to admit that I don’t understand all these open source licences.
Warning : the code might probably look ugly, with lots of global variables. It is not academic, but it works. I am almost autodidact.On Windows, you will probably need to install Visual Studio 2013 redistributable package
Files extensions of the tool chain:
- .bas : source code written in A2Z Basic
- .obj : a text list of all declaration of functions and variable, and their allocation to memory. Just for debugging by hand.
- .asm : assembly code
- .conf: configuration for the “bin generator”. It contains the size and RAM address of the data to transfer.
- .bina : binary data file to transfer to A2Z, it uses the bootloader protocol
- .bine : binary executable file to transfer to A2Z, it uses the bootloader protocol
- .binc : concatenation of one .bine file, and one or several .bina
- .bmpA2Z : intermediate format for bitmap images generation
