You use this, make a few tweaks to Notepad++ and you can have a cobbled together fully functional IDE environment for the SNES if you'd like.https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/749/
Quote from: Squall_FF8 on January 14, 2018, 04:49:45 PMThank you for the suggestions guys! My responses are slow, because I try to evaluate each one! Could you elaborate more? More precisely I'm interested in your observations on macros.
QuoteNote that WLA's macros are in fact more like procedures than real macros, because WLA doesn't substitute macro calls with macro data. Instead WLA jumps to the macro when it encounters a macro call at compile time.
.macro Clear clc.endmClear
