Hi all,

I just wanted to prevent any possible misconception that Visual ASM I've been uploading from its very begining (V1.0.0.0) has, by any means, any relation to visualasm.

I've developed Visual ASM from ground up and the latest version (currently V1.0.0.9) can always be downloaded from this forum.

Regards to all,

akyprian, We know that you wrote your editor from scratch and it is independent from old "visualasm". But IMHO, you must think about changing the name of your IDE, because there will be many people that will mess both "old" and "new" visualasm" IDEs. Look, I know that your one is "Visual ASM" but both names are too similar, especially now, when old project resurrect from the ashes :grin: :grin: :grin: . Don't be angry on me, for this suggestion. It's for good I think.

Regards

JohnFound,

Thanks very much for your interset. I do appreciate it. I am not saying that I had not thought about it, but, it is a very painful decision. Let's see what other users say...

Regards,

Unfortunately, I agree with JohnFound. Initially, this misconception lead me to not trying your IDE - I thought it was the "old" Visual ASM. Surely, you can create a better name - "Visual" this or that is so 90's while your IDE is more modern and a part of the future. :)

Well, "Visual ASM" is Sleak And Really Compact, so how about SARCasm? (j/k)

Since it's small, yet packs alot of features, it shouldn't be too hard too think up another name related to these traits.

Minide
Minasm
Midasm
...

Masmer,

The intention is to make Visual ASM an IDE with all necessary features (but I will refuse to include unnecessary things just to make the file size bigger). If I manage to do this while keeping File Size to the minimum possible value this would be ideal.

So, I consider your name recommendations that include words like "min" are out of the question. SARC sounds good.

Regards,

SARC seems to remind me of the term "SARS" which happen to pop out of the newspaper every now and then. Just my opinion only.

SARCasm get me to think of sarcasm which in my world means malice, irony, gibe, scorn or taunt

Thanks minor28,

I know very well what sarcasm means; It is a Greek word (I am Greek Cypriot).

I enjoy thinking up acronyms.

Another Greek-based word ...

Cataclasm (CASM for short)

Compact
Assembly
Tool
And
Code
Learner
ASM

Masmer,

Put into the list, anything else?

Maybe Cypasm? :grin:

I'm visiting my parents so am using their Mac, otherwise I would have access to a number of dictionary programs in which to get inspiration.

If someone is also willing to try acronyms, here's a few words to play around with:

Windows (Win32)
Api
Tool
Compact
Masm
Asm
IDE
Visual
Rapid
...

Because akyprian IDE is very flexible,
i suggest the term " FlexAsm ".

Manos.

I like "fission" - creating great things from small little bits.

Fission IDE

The whole universe of complexity has been built up from fission. :)

Come on guys, simple is better:

"Advanced assembler editor" - AAE

What you think?
Posted on 2003-06-19 10:03:41 by JohnFound
Or maybe "ACE"?

Assemby
Coding
Environment
