I've been trying to figure out to program for bankswitching in DASM.
I've read through the "Size.txt" file, and looked up Manuel's
bankswitching template in the Stella archives. In the template I saw
codes I'm not familiar with such as "SEG.U" and "RORG".

So I went looking for the documentation to DASM (the explaination about why I didn't do this earlier makes me sound like the idiot I am so I'll skip it). ...and guess what... there I found an explanation of the codes.

Though I'm sure the DASM documenation is well written, I have found the the code explanations rather confusing. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone can recommend a book that can explain concepts such as segments, relocated origins, and declared data to a novice. In other words, is there a "DASM for Dummies" type book out there?
