If we compare RosAsm to NASM, I can say that NASM has ok syntax. But the
real diffrence is the insane speed you can work at with RosAsm.

If Randall own words are anything to judge by, then his textconverter is

I dont read code for an app that I havent seen run first. And I cannot

should be six of them?
I cant find them. Please supply direct links.

I don't run an app I haven't read the source code to! :)

Since you seem to find links challenging, I could post some of Randy's

While I can't find an actual copy of LISA anywhere, she left some
