Wanting to start sizecoding on a 6502 platform in this day and age can be tough.
So here is a bit of help to get you started:
The 6502 processor
The 6502 processor can be seen as the 8-bit micro ARM chip. It has only has 3 registers (Accumulator, X and Y registers) and a handful of instructions to work with.
To be added.
When using the 6502 for sizecoding, you'll mostly be working from zeropage
