Subject: Z80 to 8086 translator
A translator which does this is available from Sorcim. Its called TRANS86,
and it runs under CPM-80. It takes 8080 or Z80 code and translates it
to ACT86 code. ACT86 code is Sorcim's answer to Intel's mnemonics for the
8086. If you have a "normal" 8086 assembler, it will barf on ACT86 code,
but an ACT86 assembler is also available, which produces .HEX files.
Of course, the translator sometimes has problems converting 8080/Z80
code to 8086, but fortunately it flags everything that could cause
problems. If you get disgusted with the ACT86 mnemonics, you could
probably write a postprocessor in PASCAL, etc. to covert them to Intel's
standard. Hope this helps...
