Looking for working assembler to compile SymbOS app.

Hi,

I would like to develop some programs for SymbOS, but as pure MSX user I must say I'm really not a big fan of WinAPE emulator as a development environment for number of reasons including that I can't minimize or close the Amstrad emulator, there is no comment block, ";" does not necessarily comment out all of the line, I'm practically forced to use the embedded text editor etc. etc.

Now my question is: Is there any other Z80 assembler out there that could automatically generate me relocation tables that SymbOS executables are expected to include? If you don't get what I mean, this listing output probably should explain it self well enough:

000003  0000  (1000)        org #1000
000004  1000                relocate_start
000006  1000  21 07 10      	ld hl,test
000007  1003  11 08 10      	ld de,test2
000008  1006  C9            	ret
000010  1007  00            test	db 0
000011  1008  00            test2	db 0
000013  1009  02 00         	dw relocate_count
000014  100B  04 00         	dw relocate_size
000016  100D  01 10 04 10   relocate_table
000017  1011                relocate_end

Are those equivalent to the LINK-80 REL files?

I know there's a help request to implement support on sjasmplus. I'll keep following this thread to see if anything else shows up.

I took a quick look and I must say, I can't make head or tails what those REL-files include, but at least not the stuff that I need in correct format... This Macro assembler also feels quite oldish, the file output is CP/M, so the file sizes are fixed to 128 byte record size and so on... -> Causes more problems than solves.

This is not quite a same thing, so I opened a new request:
https://github.com/z00m128/sjasmplus/issues/99

Let's see if that catches some attention... You don't know, if you don't ask. :)
