A general-purpose cross assembler named gpca using Franz Lisp on a VAX11/750 with Berkeley Unix BSD4. 2 was developed. All the user has to do is to provide rule lists to a rule-database for code generation. The rule-based technique used in the gpca can enhance the productivity for developing cross assemblers for 4-, 8-, 16-, and 32-bit microprocessors in a short period of time through the rule independency. The implemented cross-assembler is composed of database management routines, lexical pattern matching routines, and a few other routines. The cross assembler, which is small enough to be understood completely by the user, has a flexibility and an expandability in terms of user extensible pseudo-operations and macro functions.
