Mine runs on a GUI because I find GUIs easier to interact with.
In the tek code, I found a modified pascal string, where the first
byte 4 MSB are set to something other than 0 (I think it's a message
type tag) and the last 4 are the string length. MSB are set at times
in the characters in the string. Tek used this (in the DM5010) for
the 488 bus vocabulary.
Mine's not designed to put out source quality disassembly (some were),
but more as a tool for reverse engineering. The source quality stuff
is simply a matter of reformatting the output, so that's not a big
The whole nature of the thing is to be interactive, of course.
Ok, it was easier for me to continue work on the existing disassembler
than it was to learn and support python, and every other disassembler
was also command line driven, and I couldn't add features.
