cross-assembler

cross-assembler

An assembler which runs on one type of processor and produces machine code for another.

There is a set of 6502, 68xx and Zilog Z80 and 8085 cross-assemblers in C by <msmakela@cc.helsinki.fi> and Alan R. Baldwin. They run under MS-DOS and could be compiled to run under Unix and on the Amiga and Atari ST.
