ARM SDT to GCC asm conversion tool

This is the ARM SDT to GCC asm conversion tool I used to port PocketNES and Goomba Color to GCC.
This tool does not do the whole job though.

Re: ARM SDT to GCC asm conversion tool

How to use it:
For example, I'll use PocketNES:

Make a "Project" file:  (I named it project3.txt)

6502.s
apack.s
boot.s
cart.s
cf.s
io.s
link.s
mem.s
memory.s
ppu.s
sound.s

Make a batch file:  (I named it convert.bat)

cd directory_containing_your_code
..\asmconv.exe ..\project3.txt ..\output_directory
cd ..

Make sure output_directory and any necessary subdirectories exist already.  Maybe copy all the original versions of files there too, files that need modification get overwritten anyway.

More stuff:
The generated code may depend on macros, here's a portion of them you'll need:

	.macro adrl2 reg,label

 _map_address_ = \base

Afterwards, you may need to change some stuff:
* Replace .include with #include so that devkitarm's makefile works better
* Get rid of any excess MAPs, the tools only support one MAP.
* Change any incbins to be relative to the "Build" folder of a devkitpro project
* Some complex math expressions may not work on Gnu assembler, maybe equate them before you use them
* If you use register names, .unreq them at the end of a source file
* Because ADR can not cross source files, you may need to make a master asm file that #includes all other asm code
* AREA directives probably need to be rewritten:

example: change this
	AREA wram_code0, CODE, READWRITE
to this
 .align
 .pool
 .section .iwram, "ax", %progbits
 .subsection 0
 .align
 .pool

* Get rid of 2_ prefix for binary numbers, replace with 0b
* Maybe remove any unnecessary .includes if you move your project to the 'master source file that includes everything' model
