Another other 6502 + Z80 setup? The SuperPET has a 6502 and a 6809. I don't know if they can be switched by software means, as I haven't investigated my SuperPET more closely yet. If there is a hardware switch only, I'd try to write a program that asks the user to flip the switch. When it comes to combining the two compilers, I'd do it in the linker. Each module would be compiled for one of the supported processors, and the linker would understand the object code generated by different compilers. The programmer would have to insert appropriate macros in order to invoke subroutines compiled for a foreign processor. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
