Exactly.  The assembly code is Borland specific inline assembly code.
And not a macro in sight.  I spent a couple of days looking at his CPU.
There's maybe 20K lines of code, apparently hand written.  Amazing
stuff.  Maybe he generated it somehow, but that's a lot of assembly code
to port by hand.  I think even Brad uses some macros in his C++ cpu.
It's definitely an easier way to go.

But I couldn't understand a lick of his TIA engine...  Too hard for me.
