Cross-32 : A Universal Cross Assembler for the Acorn Archimedes

Post by daveejhitchins » Wed Mar 25, 2020 4:48 pm

At last I've finished formatting, editing and correcting the User Guide for the Cross-32.

I've attached a .pdf of the User Guide to this post. I would have provided the document in MS Word format, however, I'm absolutely certain that it will lose its formatting when read on a Windows version of Word!

I'll be putting together a package of the Disc (3.5") and the User Guide if anyone would like a copy. The price will be material cost (TBA) and P&P.

I'm hoping to provide the Disc as near to the original as possible - including a serial number. More on that later.

I would be very grateful if someone had the time to read through the User Guide to spot any errors I've missed! Please feedback here.

Thanks - Dave H :D

I've highlighted the issues I found in the attached version of the file. (Some of the highlights may just be me not understanding). Hope it helps.

Thanks, Ian . . . I was going 'snow-blind' reading it over and over. I'll correct the errors and update the first post attachment.

Sorry, I should have made it clearer. I'd been editing my original post as I found any issues, but seemed easier to just upload an annotated file.

Updated the first post with the latest edition 1V3. Spent a lot more time going through and picking out all the missing/extra full stops and commas.

It may need a serial number added! . . . I have the program and have asked IanS to take a look at it for me.

More info as we find out.

Yes . . . The answer is to run what you have through the Serial Number App.

I'm trying to get a copy that I can eMail you. Let you know ASAP. I should ask: will you be able to get the image I send you onto your machine - and, which machines do you have?
