We tend to prefer the syntax used for examples in official documentation in our disassembly. The documentation used the hex string H'89AB' notation, so we go with that. IIRC the pseudoregisters you’re talking about are now represented as an address space, so you can view them in a memory window.
I wonder when the syntax changed, it has been $ since... way back, version 0.80 from 2004... is as far as I can go, guess it's a new thing wanting to type more, instead of less. ;-)
The registers held in the Fairchild 3850 CPU that are addressed using ISAR (should we call them pseudoregisters?) are used a lot - as it's the only default RAM in the machine. It was extremely convenient to have them listed.
I'm fine with H, K, Q now being listed as the full 16-bit versions instead of their valid 8-bit versions HU, HL, KU... etc - but skipping the majority of the registers - why, who will benefit from this? Was it a user request?
I see now that they are in the register space memory in the memory window - thanks.
Which is very handy if you want to change a register. It's not very handy if you want to check a value - the list that was shown in the debugger before was excellent (shown in decimal but still). You pressed the debugger button and it was there in a list on the left.
Now: debugger button, Ctrl+M, mouse, click selection table, select register space memory... then calculate what the register is in Octal (as it's always addressed in octal in the code) or decimal as is used in all the old code since 20 years back, then in the evenly spaced data (without an x-axle marker, chunk size doesn't help me much), count by stepping one hex number at the time pointing with the mouse pointer
It's a little bit more work, a little bit of time a lot of times that could be spent on other things.
It would be highly useful to have the list of the registers (R16-R63) where they were before, with decimal numbering as before - or preferably - octal which would be R20-R77, I mean R O'20' - R O'77'
I'm used to the list it being there, it's very helpful when programming, I'd like it to continue to be there, please.
I think we're four or five people programming for the Channel F - in the world - please don't make it harder.
