Re: [hatari-devel] Cartridge help text

Hatari cartridge image contains program that shows some
Hatari help text.  I noticed that it's a bit out of date.

Attached patch adds few missing keyboard shortcuts,
shortens other text so that they hopefully fit, and
makes the texts more consistent (all start with lower
case etc).

Thomas or Nicolas, if you have the setup to convert
the cartridge asm to data file, could apply my patch
or something similar and update the cart image?

I see in cartData.c that the program was generated with TurboAss, which exist only under Atari IIRC. Using the attached patch, it's possible to compile it with vasm which is available for any OS (sources are available).

The binary file corresponding to cart_asm.s can then be assembled with :

vasmm68k_mot -devpac -showopt -o cart_asm.bin -Fbin cart_asm.s

As noted, hexdump will convert to some text data :

hexdump -v -e ' 16/1 "0x%02x," "\n" ' cart_asm.bin > cart_asm.txt

Then one just needs to add a C header to cart_asm.txt + manually edit the last line to remove empty 0x and you can create a similar cartData.c as the one shipped today with Hatari.

Thomas, what do you think ? Maybe we should remove the turboass specific directives and use devpac ones compatibles with vasm ?

It might even be possible to create a CMake rule for all of this.
