Works here:

uz@trixie:~/src/cc65/src/ca65$ cat t.s
uz@trixie:~/src/cc65/src/ca65$ ./ca65 -l t.lst t.s
uz@trixie:~/src/cc65/src/ca65$ cat t.lst

Maybe there's something weird with your source file. If you cannot get it
running, please strip it, making it as short as possible. Then zip it to
protect it against encoding errors in the mail client and send it to me in
private mail.

If this is really the same source file (shared over a file server or similar)
it may have to do with different line endings on the Mac and Windows side. Try
to recreate the file on Windows using a Windows text editor.

You can only post to the list using the subscribed address. All others will
not work. This is sometimes inconvenient but protects the list against spam.
