C sources of the A-code to C translator acdc. This translator
is used (and built) automatically by the bash advbld script, but it
can also be used on its own. Once compiled and linked ("cc *.c -o
acdc", which is done automatically by advbld), it will show
usage if given -h (or --help) command line option. See
acode-c-build.html for an explanation of
translator's uses, if advbld is not available or cannot be used.
Contains the following A-code bash script tools:
An all-purpse bash script for building A-code game executables. See
a separate page for a guide to this script's
use. If, for whatever reason, you cannot or do not wish to use
advbld, there is a separate
page explaining how to create game executables from supplied C
sources, and another page explaining
how to convert A-code source to derived C source. Please note
that in order to work, the script must be executed where it is in the
supplied directories hierarchy, since it expects other parts of the
hierarchy to be in the same relative positions, as supplied in the
tarball. The top level directory acode-12.83 can, however, be
renamed as you please.
A library of shell functions used by the advbld sript.
A-code documentation in HTML format.
A-code kernel C sources to compile and link with derived game C
sources created by the acdc translator. The extras
sub-directory contains bits and pieces required by specialist build modes
