SEKAS Update

I’ve spent the past 5 hours fixing bugs I’ve found in SEKAS over the past few months and it looks like I finally got them all. Most importantly, as I may have mentioned in a previous post, is the use of labels within non-branch and non-jump instructions, like the move “family”. Here’s an example:

movea.l text_read,a2

Now, instead of reporting text_read as an invalid source operand, SEKAS will take the label “text_read”, see if it is a label, and replace it with its effective address. That means you can have data stored in the source code and access it elsewhere by addressing it via a label. Pretty handy feature, n’cest pas?
