Hi everybody!

I have finished an Atari 8-Bit specific 6502 disassembler designed for
both Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. It's called DIS6502: 6502 Disassembler
for Atari.

My software represents a new approach for disassembling Atari programs
or boot disks, it is an interactive and iterative process (not a batch
process on which you have no control).

The goal is to generate a listing __ready to assemble__ with your

The features for the unregistered version are:

- Complete disassembly of
  + Atari binary files (stand alone executables), 
  + Atari binary files within .ATR/.XFD disk images, 
  + Boot sectors of .ATR/.XFD disk images, 
  + Any part of any sectors in .ATR/.XFD disk images, 

- Knows all Atari equates, including XL/XE equates

- You can set each byte of the disassembled file/disk a special type so
the disassembler will handle it in special ways. The types are:
  + Code,
  + Byte directive,
  + Word directive,
  + Label in a .Word directive,
  + String,
  + Screen bytes (using .SBYTE for MAC/65)
  + Display List.

- Display sprites in a file or a disk image, various graphics modes
- Fully customizable for different assemblers,
- Write boot disk from a binary file,
- Display dump of files and sector using Atari font.

The features for the registered users are:

- Support for .PRO disk images and .ATR/.XFD of any size,
- Disassembly of Spy data (a special feature to disassemble crypted
- Save listing in several files using .INCLUDE directive (if the
assembler supports it),
- No more 10 seconds to wait in the about box.

If you have a PC and Windows, you should try it!

The unregistered version is available at

the co-author of the registered version of DIS6502.
