M68HC12 GNU assembly
i am taking a class where we are programming m68hc12 microcontrollers i want to be able to write the code and compile it on my ibook instead of having to go to the lab and doing it there. i know you can write assembly in xcode but im stumped as to where to begin. ex: i have a code hw_7.asm but when i open it in xcode it won't let me compile it.

Open a terminal, cd to the directory and use the 'gas' command to assemble
gas -o hw_7.bin hw_7.asm
that outputs to hw_7.bin, compiling hw_7.asm . The traditional extension for asm files is just .s however. You may need to link the file manually with the ld command
should be very helpful

Ugh, that's not happy. You need xcode installed, but that _ought to_ install GCC, GAS etc.
I hope people in the mac forum can give you more help, i asked this be moved there.
