jAsm currently compiles with CMake for Linux or Visual Studio 2015 for Windows.
Command line build with CMake in Linux
To build with CMake you need CMake 3.5, Clang, Mercurial and python3 installed. On Debian, Ubuntu or Mint systems you can use apt-get to fetch the dependencies like this.
sudo apt-get install cmake clang mercurial python3
Clone the repository into a directory called 'jasm' and build it like this.
hg clone ssh://email@example.com/bjonte/jasm cd jasm export CXX=/usr/bin/clang++ mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .. sudo make install
Visual Studio on Windows
Download Visual Studio 2015 from www.microsoft.com and install it. Double click on the
jasm.sln file to open the project. Select the
Release configuration and build the solution. You will get a
jasm.exe binary in
Running Unit Tests
Run the unit tests using the python script
unit_test_run.py. It runs under Python 3.
Add a unit test by placing a file called
test_something.asm that produce the correct output in the unit_tests directory and run unit_test_generate.py. This will add the generated output in unit_tests/results and be considered the correct output for then on.
When building a release you must run the python script
increase_revision.py to inject the current revision and hash into the source code. This change should never be submitted! Building with CMake run this automatically.
There are also small scripts to update the major and minor revisions. These changes should be submitted.
python3 increase_major.py python3 increase_minor.py
