HLA v1.58 is now available on Webster at

HLA, the High Level Assembler, is a very powerful
macro assembler for 80x86 CPUs. Employing a high-level-like
syntax, it allows beginning programmers to learn assembly
language much faster than if using a traditional assembler.
HLA is fully supported by over 4,000 pages of documentation
on Webster (http://webster.cs.ucr.edu) and is the assembler
used in "The Art of Assembly Language" published by
No Starch Press (http://www.nostarch.com).

HLA is totally free (public domain) and all source code
is available for both the compiler/assembler and the
HLA Standard Library.

HLA is available for Windows and Linux users.
Carefully written HLA programs are portable between
the two OSes with nothing more than a recompile (thanks
to the HLA Standard Library).

HLA v1.58 contains a few minor corrections to HLA
Standard Library routines plus a vastly improved installation
system for Windows users. HLA v1.58 also includes a
special version of the RadASM integrated development
environment that integrates with HLA much better than
previous releases. Included are templates for creating
console applications, Win32 GUI apps, and Win32 GUI
apps based on the book "Windows Programming in Assembly"

A new user's guide for RadASM/HLA is also available on
Webster, http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/Page_hla/HLADoc/RadAsmUser.pdf

I've just uploaded a new copy of "hlasetup.exe" (HLA v1.58)
to Webster (http://webster.cs.ucr.edu - on the HLA download page).
The one I uploaded yesterday was severely broken. My install
script was completely messed up and several important files were
left out of the installation.

My apologies to those who already downloaded this file.
Cheers, (or not)
