Okay--I am apprehending this at a pretty novice level right now.
From what I see the assembler takes a text file in the appropriate syntax and spits out a *.dat file which, if given the appropriate name and dropped into the emulator home directory (or, alternately, concatenated with calc.bin via "join" and flashed to the calculator) for running, copying to and from flash on the emulator, moving over to the calc via SEND* and the cable, etc.
This is only slightly more complicated than using hp41uc to create *.raw files from text to get into HP41C and HP42S emulators and or, in my case a lot, may barcode files for laser printing, wanding into the calc, the writing to cards.
I will play with the assembler in the days to come. I broke a pin on the plug of my cable so I am awaiting the replacement from Gene, so I will have to wait to see i things move over to the real calc okay.
