is assembly language and monitor covered in the x16 manual?

Recommended Posts

We are planning a separate guide for that, but for now just click Downloads above to be taken to the current documentation.

No. Assembly language is something you need to learn from other sources - like Jim Butterfields book for the C64 still one of the best books to read.

Here are some links (depending on the language you speak/read)

German:

https://www.retro-programming.de/programming/assembler/

English:

https://skilldrick.github.io/easy6502/

Here is Jim Butterfields book...

http://www.1000bit.it/support/manuali/commodore/c64/ML_for_the_C64_and_Other_Commodore_Computers.pdf

Also a good thing to understand the C64 book. It is actually everything that is referenced from the X16 dokumentation (e.g. BASIC, KERNAL calls etc.)

http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/c64/manuals/C64_Programmers_Reference_Guide.pdf

And this documentation to understand all the different inner workings of the Commodores ... very extensive and also quick reference.

The Monitor is covered in this document:

Thanks for that!  While I wrote a lot of 6502 "back in the day," my work was almost exclusively on the Apple ][ series. As such, the books I have are all centered around those systems.  Having a good C64 reference will help with some things I want to fiddle with for the Commander X16!

Will there be appendices listing tables of things like the Vera registers, or special memory locations as a quick reference?

There is a reference chart in the works for that kind of thing yes. More info when we have it.
