Hallo Mike,

Capacity isn't the problem, many thanks for the offer. The reason I asked is
that I can use a bit of advertisement for this disk simulator.

Hallo Andre,

Hallo allemaal,

I have too may things to do :( At this moment I'm trying to repair a PET
2001. I already replaced all IC's where possible. It starts up but according
my debugger it ends up at $FDBF where you will find the instruction 'jmp
$FDBF'. So now I have to find out why at a certain pont the 6502 branches to
'this' instead of to 'that'. But the only listing I have is the one
generated by Andre and it lacks quite a bit of comment (no offence meant!).
This simply means I have to add it myself to find out where things go wrong.
Andre's listing is an HTML one and I opened it under M$-Word 2000. The
advantage is that I can edit it (yes, unbelievable, but Word can indeed edit
text!) but most important, I can make use of the links. I must admit that
that is really really comfortable. Using a text editor I have to 'find' a
subroutine, now I just click a link. And returning to the calling part is
just a matter of pushing the 'previous' button. Now I'm really thinking of
reprogramming my assembler so it will accept HTML as source code. But.....

Is there a catch? Yes, of course, otherwise it wouldn't be a product of M$.
Word turned this:


into this :

lang=EN-GB style='mso-ansi-language:EN-GB'> FFFC<span style="mso-spacerun:
yes">&nbsp; </span><a
name=FFFC>CPURESV</a><span style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
</span>.word </span><a
href="#FD38"><span lang=EN-GB
lang=EN-GB style='mso-ansi-language:EN-GB'><span style="mso-spacerun:
yes">&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><o:p></o:p></span></pre>

enlarging the original text from 366 KB to 2880 KB. I'm confident that I can
make my assembler to accept the above s**t as well but I'm not looking
forward to X-MegaByte sized files which are hardly to be read by any other
text editor. I'm also quite confident that I can dream up some macro's for
my old WP text editor that will remove all the crap added by Word. The very
very last thing I will do is writing my own text editor capable of handling
HTML. But before doing any of these things (and yes, adding _again_ another
project to my big list) is that I want to ask you what experiences you have
regarding this subject of handling big assembler files. Thanks for any
