I am about 60% of the way through finishing a perl script that translates
asx8051 assembler output to another form of assembler (it works now but
needs to be pounded flat). All source line numbers in the asc8051 file are
translated into full source lines as comments. It can be used in a FREE and
much better than fair IDE from rigelcorp I did this after trying out just
about every free and cheap compiler out there and being disgusted with all
results except sdcc (it seems to be very close to the results you would get
by hand in assembler).
I have attached the perl script as is and will be improving it. You can get
the IDE at http://www.rigelcorp.com and it uses the small-c compiler natively but
the results are junk. However the simulator and monitor seem to be quite
good. I have talked to these people and they seem willing to set up a sdcc
tool chain if it isn't too much trouble (I may have made that possible).
If anyone knows of a better FREE IDE or another way to accomplish this,
PLEASE LET ME KNOW. There is also the Micro-Ide (www.bipom.com) which is
cheap and already has some support for sdcc but still has to use sdcdb.
I wrote the above script because sdcdb does not work for me. Not even a
little bit: 1) you can't break on routine names and most break points are
ignored anyway, 2) almost nothing works properly and its not very full
functioned anyway, 3) I used the most recent versions of both sdcc and
the full binary of cygwin.
Note: The borland version of sdcc runs about ten times slower than the
cygwin version, is there a reason for this?
