Assembler Workbench

Packaging for Sinclair QL Assembler Workbench
Assembler Workbench is a complete integrated 68000 machine code development package by Talent Computer Systems.

There are three main program modules which are accessed from a menu on screen:

  • Full Screen Editor
  • Assembler
  • Monitor and Disassembler

The package allows you to edit, assemble, execute and then debug assembly language programs in memory without accessing the microdrives or disk drives.

Full on-screen help is also provided.

Advertised features include:

  • Assembler can operate in a conventional two-pass mode or as a one-line assembler
  • The Monitor offers a dual screen facility to assist in debugging graphics programs
  • Trace code in RAM and ROM
  • Loads and saves to backing store
  • Multi-window display
  • Set Registers
  • Search, Move, Fill, Insert etc
  • Job and Channel control
  • ESC interrupts executing program
  • Disassembler included
  • On-line help (ie. on screen - this was before the days of the internet!)
  • Trace code QDOS traps option
  • Full window memory editor
  • HEX and ASCII dumps
  • Break and file access
  • Function key definer
  • Various screen layouts

The author later released a Macro Assembler which consisted of just an editor and macro assembler.

The rights to Assembler Workbench passed to QUANTA who have made an upgraded version available to their members through the QUANTA Library.
