atoi(), itoa() - conversion routines

Postby tcat » Thu Jan 25, 2018 7:38 pm


I have always taken for granted, standard input/output routines in higher level languages such as `BASIC' ,`C' ,`Pascal', etc . I was therefore wondering how to code simple conversion routines in assembly language.

This sets a basis of my assembly learning excercise, I reused a Simon's template in effort to adopt some good ST coding practise. Sharing both code and prog.
