@jautero The problem is that the assembler is running out of memory so I have to split the file up. And it's not designed for that.
Also, there appear to be some line ending issues that I haven't diagnosed yet.
@jautero The act of getting it to compile. Both Small C and DOS suck. :)
@ethicsperoxide The one on the left is the bad version. The one on the right is correct. Same compiler, different versions.
They are 8080 instructions, in case you were curious.
@Ventronik I know what I'm doing for Christmas.
@mike This is so me.
I had to cull my book collection by half when I moved last time. Really don't want to do that again.
@mike I almost, almost, want to read it again just to see how I feel about it.
@GeoffWozniak I am, as near as I can tell, the exact same age as the mythical figure who set up all the stuff the protagonist is running through.
Every single nostalgic checkpoint and note hit me square in the brain and I have never felt so crassly and overtly emotionally manipulated by a book.
Again, if I hadn't been in a literal desert with nothing else to read, I would have thrown it away after a couple of chapters.
