A New Name?
« on: May 12, 2017, 10:28:30 PM »
So we've been thinking about the name HJWASM... it doesn't really roll off the tongue. We'd tried to keep it close to JWASM out of respect for the work done to that point with the prefix H, but I think now it's time for a change.

So I'd like to invite suggestions for the new name  8)

Won't be easy to find a good alternative name. I got used to it :bgrin:

Pro:      HJWasm cares for Habran, John, Japheth and the Watcom gang :biggrin:
Contra: The name is not sexy enough for Oprah's and Letterman's shows :(

 I'm thiniking that and present name is not bad, but name of exe and env varibale possible stay WAsm - as it compatible with it originally. And that's very simple to do, and I'm already using such - that not to type much in command line.

I have been thinking that AWASM is the coolest and sexiest name your imagination can find - "A" means Advanced. You keep the family radix WASM, you keep the technology radix ASM.

HASM sounds the best of the lot, OASM (Open Assembler) sounds OK, IASM (Independent Assembler) has a good ring to it, drop what you can with the Watcom name, WASM was an old toothless pig and Japheth performed miracles to turn it into JWASM. Perhaps even IA (Independent Assembler), no need to follow anyone else's naming convention.

Hi,

   How about ASM*?  Call it ASM Star.  Joking of course.

Sorry,
