Was it ever standard with Windows or DOS? If memory serves, it was always
an add-on package. IIRC, MASM 1.0 was abouit $100, which didn't make it
much of a bargain.
LIB and LINK were packaged with DOS, but not MASM. ASM was standard with
CP/M, but it was kind of brain-dead (no macro facility, linking or
relocation). Most folks who wanted to program assembler seriously on 8 bit
stuff picked up either M80/L80 or RMAC.
Didn't the Polymorphic or Processor Tech systems box ship with a resident
editor (BASC-style with line numbers) and a simple assembler? I seem to
remember hacking the I/O in it to work with my MITS box. Even added a few
of my own commands.
