Most microprocessor manufacturers are offering microcomputer development systems for software production. These usually consist of a diskette-based programming system, a PROM programmer, and a processor or memory emulator. Programs are developed on the system, tested on the target machine using emulation, and then burned into a target machine PROM. Alternatives for micro-computer software development are cross-assemblers or hand-coding of machine instructions. (cbb 5/80)
