This directory contains SixtyPical example programs, categorized in subdirectories by machine architecture.
In the rudiments directory are programs which are not for any particular machine, but meant to demonstrate the features of SixtyPical. Some are meant to fail and produce an error message. Others can run on any architecture where there is a routine at 65490 which outputs the value of the accumulator as an ASCII character.
demo-game: a little game-like program written as a "can we write something you'd see in practice?" test case for SixtyPical.
The second version of Ribos has been translated to SixtyPical.
petulant: "The PETulant Cursor", a tiny (44 bytes) "display hack". Originally written in the late 80's. Rewritten with the P65 assembler (now Ophis) and re-released on April 1st, 2008 (a hint as to its nature).
Translated to SixtyPical (in 2018), after adding some optimizations to the SixtyPical compiler, the resulting executable is still 44 bytes!
In the atari2600 directory are programs that run on the Atari 2600 (4K cartridge). The directory itself contains a simple demo, smiley.60p which was converted from an older Atari 2600 skeleton program written in Ophis.
