What's new in this version

Verifications for NetBeans versions

Plugin is not subject to any verification


- currently supported x86 and SPARC assembler/disassembler
- syntax highlighting (instructions, labels, registers etc.)
- hyperlinks on jump and call targets - ctrl+ click on a label or a function name
- selected register usage highlighting (read/write with different colors) - place caret on a register
- navigator works the same way as it does with Java or C/C++
- register usage information (shown in Registers Window) - Window->Navigating->Registers
- register live ranges - select a register in Registers Window

Open .s, .asm or .as file (other extensions are not supported now)

(C/C++ pack is required)
- go to Tools->Plugins
- go to Downloaded tab
- click on Add Plugins...
- select nbm
- accept everything
- restart IDE on request

Known issues:
- selection in registers window table lost on any action if sorting is not default
- memory and cpu usage is not always optimal
- register usage and liveranges only work for global functions (marked as .global)

How to use

Download the latest Netbeans. The plugin is already there, just open any .s or .asm or any other asm mime type file and you'll see highlighting, hyperlink etc.
