I'm one of those guys who tends to write a novel's worth of comments, often one for every line. (It's a sickness...
) In so doing, I discovered some color highlighting quirks in the editor:
easy68kcolor.png [ 29.64 KiB | Viewed 1126 times ]
OPT MEX ; correct color
DoNothing MACRO ;;;;; <- instruction color on comment
nop ; correct color
ENDM ; correct color
move.\0 d1, \1 ; correct color
START: ; correct color
move.l ($7e10), ($5000) ; <- comment color on operand
DoNothing ; macro color on comment
;DoNothing ; correct color
moveq #$a, d1 ; correct color
AnotherMac.b d2 ; macro color on operand and comment
AnotherMac.w d3 ; macro color on operand and comment
jmp .Loop ;;;;; <- instruction color on comment
jmp START ; correct color
END START ; correct color
The code shown above assembles fine, it's just the color highlighting that's a little off, so this is only a cosmetic issue. I hate to bother anyone about this sort of thing, but maybe some of the Professor's students could tackle it as a class project? If not, I can live with it. I like EASy68K too much to quit using it over something minor like this.
Thanks again for this great software!
