and makes TMP a real crossassembler.
For the record, a "cross-assembler" is an assembler for microprocessor architecture X running on architecture Y, where X != Y. (E.g., a CP/M Z-80 assembler running under the Commodore 128's 8510A processor.)
A target assembler
is one where it runs on host
X and assembles for target
Y, obviously where X != Y. The cable connecting the two is said to be an umbilical cable
, and the monitor which runs on the target the monitor
or umbilical monitor
TSM is not a cross-assembler, it's a target-assembler.
Just trying to reduce confusion in nomenclature used in the industry.
