I had a look at the various source files... the differences in the
syntaxes are pretty superficial, it wouldn't be hard to come up with
a small Perl script (or C program, or set of m4 macros, or whatever)
to covert between the 3. In fact, if different people from this list
start using different assemblers, it'll be a necessity..

For instance, I can't run tasm at all (there is a Linux version, but
it's a precompiled binary and it doesn't work on any of my systems).. And
are there xasm and tasm versions for Macintosh?

It's too bad nobody could port MAC/65 to modern OSes, that would have
been my assembler of choice :)

(Actually, I have managed to successfully use the text version of the
Atari800 emulator and a shell script, to let me use the Atari 800 version
of MAC/65 directly from the command line.. but it's tricky to set up, to
say the least, and probably won't work on anything but UNIX variants)
