Are you asking for the source code to the 30+ years old original PC clone?

I think he's asking for a version of FASM or some other assembler that can run on an 8088 and fit on an IBM PC ROM chip.

In that case then the answer is no for fasm. fasm requires a 32-bit CPU at a minimum.

Hm, have you tried playing around with MS-DOS/FreeDOS Debug.com? Is that kinda what you're looking for?

Get what? Please explain more about what you need. It is not clear what you are asking for.

What would you do with it in ROM? You'd still have to manually enter stuff every time you boot up. That's far from efficient.

Anyways, FreeDOS has both DEBUG and ROMOS (although a slightly newer version is available on the original author's site).

But I've never burned anything to ROM, though, so I'm no real help here.

the same thing you would with IBMBASIC only in assembly.

also to write and load programs onto/from floppy/hard drive as raw data

no file system or operating system.

then rip the image as a bin to convert for any x86 based operating system you want, or no operating system at all

kinda like atari game cartriges in a way.

Except much more verbose (i.e. more tedious to type in).

Like Forth (blocks)?

I think source code would be a better (portable) alternative. Or some kind of bytecode (UCSD P-code)?
