I'm proud to announce version 2.13.2 of cc65. cc65 is a complete cross
development package for 65(C)02 systems, including a powerful macro assembler,
a C compiler, linker, librarian and several other tools.
cc65 has C and runtime library support for many of the old 6502 machines,
- the following Commodore machines:
C16/C116 and Plus/4
CBM 510 (aka P500)
the 600/700 family
newer PET machines (not 2001).
- the Apple ][ and successors.
- the Atari 8 bit machines.
- GEOS for the C64 and C128.
- the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
- the Supervision console.
- the Oric Atmos.
- the Lynx Console.
The libraries are fairly portable, so creating a version for other 6502s
shouldn't be too much work.
This version is a bugfix release against 2.13.1. Changes have been made in the
* Some error corrections in the docs.
* Added a document that describes how to use the cc65 toolset with a
currently unsupported hardware platform. Constributed by Bruce Reidenbach.
* Fixed crlf->lf conversion problem in .INCBIN (ca65).
* Fixed problems with 80 column mode (C128).
* Added C64 mouse driver patches by Greg King to remove "crosstalk" between
mouse and keyboard.
* Fixes for the ptvjoy drivers (C64, C128, VIC20) by Marco van den Heuvel.
* Fixed an optimizer problem (cc65).
* Use the drive from which the program was started as default for all
following file ops (Commodore machines). Patch by Oliver Schmidt.
Precompiled binaries are available for the most common platforms. On many
other host platforms, the sources compile out of the box, so you'll able to
create your own binaries.
For RedHat Enterprise Linux 5, ready made RPM packages are available. These
packages may also work on other rpm-based Linux systems. Please note that
there are separate RPMs for the compiler proper, the docs, and the target
specific libraries. To develop code for one of the target machines, you need
the compiler RPM package *and* one of the target machine packages. Be sure to
download the documentation package if you're new to cc65.
For windows users, there's a user friendly installer package (the one with the
..exe extension). All subpackages are selectable from within the installer
dialogue. The installer will also setup the necessary environment variables
and start menu entries. It is recommended that Windows users choose this
package instead of the .ZIP files.
Precompiled binaries for DOS, OS/2 and Windows are available in ZIP archives.
As with the RPM packages, you need the package for the development host system
(Windows or whatever) *and* one or more of the target machine packages, plus
optionally the doc package.
All packages are available from the MU software FTP server:
More information on cc65 can be found on the cc65 web page at
There is also a mailing list for discussing cc65 related issues (programming,
suggestions, bugs, ...). See
for information on how to subscribe to this list.
While I'm the main developer of cc65, it is actually a joint effort. I would
like to thank the target library developers, all the people on the cc65
mailing list, all those sending suggestions and feedback, and even those
bugging me for a new stable release:-) The CREDITS file is probably
incomplete, but you know who you are.
