Quote from: RyanfaeScotland on April 05, 2018, 07:23:04 PMI've always wondered what the tools for programming were back then? I get that you programmed assembly but was it really just with 'notepad' like editors? Was there at least syntax highlighting!? This is something I've always wondered so if anyone here can shed some light on I'd love to hear it.
Quote from: KingMike on April 05, 2018, 07:52:03 PMIf it was DOS, it was probably a text editor. You open, you type. You hope you don't get mistakes.You run it through the assembler. It tells you if you got an error, then you go back to the code and fix it and try again. Repeat.Syntax highlighting? In the '80s? I'm doubting it.
