This directory contains example sources which demonstrate the rudiments of SixtyPical.

Examples that are meant to fail and produce an error message when being compiled are in the errorful/ subdirectory.

The other sources are portable across architectures. They use include directives to bring in architecture-dependent libraries to produce output. Libraries for such are provided in the architecture-specific subdirectories of the include directory in the root directory of this repository; make sure it is on the compiler's include search path. For example:

sixtypical --run-on=x64 -I../../include/c64/:../../include/stdlib/ vector-table.60p

chrout is a routine with outputs the value of the accumulator as an ASCII character, disturbing none of the other registers, simply for the purposes of producing some observable output.

(There is a KERNAL routine which does this on both the Commodore 64 and the Commodore VIC-20. It should not be hard to find or write such a routine for most other architectures.)
