  • bugfixes reported by Nemeth Miklos
    • added a warning when assigning a value to an array (not item of array)

This release is a very early Alpha version. If you have any ideas or suggestions or if you discover any bugs, just e-mail

The compiler runs from AmigaOS V3.0, CPU 68ec020, 4MB RAM and 3-4 MB empty space on the hard disc. The compiler doesn't need FPU. But the created programs need a FPU if they use floats. The PPC binaries run via the powerpc.library.

Apart from the compiler 'phxass' and 'phxlnk' are needed to create 68k as well as 'pasm' and 'vlink' to create a PPC code. These programs can be found on the homepage of Frank Wille.
