The documentation can give you the necessary information:

As far as I understand Hidden64 aims to simplify access to RAM that
shares address space with ROM.

- On a 64k Apple II the 16k 'Language Card' falls into this category.
This RAM is already accessable to cc65 programs all of the time. So
there's no need for something like Hidden64.

- On a 128k Apple II additionally the 64k 'AUX Memory' falls into this
category. There's a cc65 EMD driver for the Apple II accessing this
memory. You might check out its source if you feel like implementing
an alternative access method.

To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
