Timex/Spectrum Next Arcade Game Designer Compiler 0.1 (Windows 32-bit)

This is a PC command-line cross compiler which turns programs written in AGD into assembly language.  There are no editors, the idea is that you type the whole program into a code editor Sinclair BASIC style then run the compiler to create an assembler listing.  This version is designed for machines with the Timex 8x1 attributes mode only and features ULAplus support.  It is also considerably more powerful than the Spectrum and CPC versions with WHILE loops, READ, DATA and much more.  Included are the compiler, engine, test program, skeleton program and a directory of example coding templates.  Also included is the compiler C source code for those who want to use a different operating system.
