You can download it from my ZX81-webserver from directory

http://zx81-siggi.endoftheinternet.org/ ... /compiler/

file "zxas2.p"

Load and run it (will copy the assembler into ram address 8192 ...) and start the assembler by
RAND USR 8192

So this version requires a special RAM-PACK at address 8192, and a regular 16K RAM-PACK will not work. :(

Yes, a "special" ram pack having ram at 8K like ZxPand or memotech 64K ram or chroma or ....

Or EO ;-)

Do you know if anyone has made a converter from the source in REM-line 2 to readable format like "zx81-scii" or ascii?

Carlo's site does no more exist :(
but the "way back machine" helps:

There you can download the complete package.

No, but according to the manual (see your first link) you can LLIST the source to the printer (or into a BMP-file when using EO): SHIFT-G

Maybe me? :mrgreen:

No, I don't have a line-2 converter. But I wrote a "network printer driver" for ZeddyNet, which "prints" into an ASCII file located on the TNFS-server. Thus if ZXAS2 uses the standard rom-routines for printing, my patched rom could be used to catch the ZXAS2 LLIST output and write it into a file.
If you have a ZXAS2 source file, which is small enough to be used with the ZXAS2-version running at 25000, I could try to "print" the source into an ASCII-file.
