To the WP34S Team,

Can you device a way to allow the emulator to read text files that have source code for the WP34S? That would make my life MUCH SIMPLER as I am porting non-trivial programs to the WP34S emulator so I can publish them on the web.

There is an assembler that reads text files and outputs directly usable binaries. We've no plans to import text files directly since this is sufficient for our requirements. Neil spent some effort making this a useful tool. Automatic label generation, disassembly etc.

I'm not sure how up to date the distributed assembler is since I only use the one that is part of the build process.

The console firmware has the capability of dumping memory sections but that is the opposite of your request.

As far as I know, the only difference between the Perl version and the EXE is that the EXE has an insignificnat bug which displays register numbers with 3 digits. I am pretty sure that this is only a cosmetic issue. (I have to resurect a computer to build a new EXE.)

Namir, you should find a reasonable manual in the distribution doc directory and some additional examples in the library directory.
