rgbds(7) — Rednex Game Boy Development System

To get a working ROM image from a single assembly source file:

$ rgbasm -o bar.o foo.asm
$ rgblink -o bar.o
$ rgbfix -v -p 0

rgbasm(1), rgbfix(1), rgblink(1), rgbds(5), gbz80(7)

1997, Carsten Sørensen (AKA SurfSmurf) writes ASMotor as a general-purpose assembler/linker system for DOS/Win32.
1999, Justin Lloyd (AKA Otaku no Zoku) adapts ASMotor to read and produce GBZ80 assembly/machine code, and releases this version as RGBDS.
2009, Vegard Nossum adapts the code to be more UNIX-like and releases this version as rgbds-linux on GitHub.
2010, Anthony J. Bentley forks that repository. The fork becomes the reference implementation of rgbds.
2017, Bentley's repository is moved to a neutral name. It is now maintained by a number of contributors at
