EasyCode: The standard macros that come in the fasm download only include imports that are used within the code. They are wrapped within an "if used" clause. This eliminates many problems with missing API functions unless the code actually needs them. Can you make your setup do the same? That way users won't have to keep manually editing includes until they find things work for them.

Hi,

First of all I would like to thank all help and support you have always given to me, I really appreciate it, and I must say that Fasm is an excellent tool.

Quote:

That is absolutely right and I am sorry if I did not explain exactly what I meant. As you know, Fasm does not use a linker, so for EC v2 "classic" projects there is no problem. However, in order to build "visual" projects EC v2 needs to link some libraries. That is why it includes various ".inc" files for classic and visual projects in the "\EasyCode\Include\Fasm" folder. Since the ".lib" files are the same that AsmC, Jwasm, Masm, PoAsm and Uasm use, I cannot adapt them exactly to Fasm, but I carefully work on that and they work in most cases as demonstrated in the Fasm examples, both 32-bit/64-bit, which build and work fine if everything is well configured.

If I make an include and library file from a Windows 10 dll and use them to build an application, it works perfectly well in a previous version of Windows (of course not calling any of the exclusive functions of Win10) if built with Masm (or any of its clones), but not always with Fasm even if none of the Windows 10 functions is called in the source code. However, this is an EC v2 responsability, NOT FASM, that I cannot avoid completely, but in most cases EC v2 can deal with it and works fine.

That is all what I meant!

Regards,

Ramon Sala

Tomasz,

Quote:
You can use a macro wrapper for "extrn" with the "if used" block to generate symbol entry only if it is actually used by the project.

Could you please show me how to make that "macro wrapper"?

Thanks in advance!

If all the "extrn" lines would have exactly the same form as in your sample, then this very simple macro would suffice:
Code:
macro extrn def
{
        match ename =as name:size, def
        \{
                if used name
                        extrn ename as name:size
                end if
        \}
}    
But to cover all possible syntax variants of "extrn" macro needs to become a bit more complex (unfortunately fasm 1 does not have the "else match" feature like fasmg):
Code:
macro extrn def
{
        define state 0
        match ename =as name:size, def
        \{
                if used name
                        extrn ename as name:size
                end if
                define state 1
        \}
        match =0 ename =as name, state def
        \{
                if used name
                        extrn ename as name
                end if
                define state 1
        \}
        match =0 name:size, state def
        \{
                if used name
                        extrn name:size
                end if
                define state 1
        \}
        match =0, state
        \{
                if used def
                        extrn def
                end if
        \}
}

Rebuild the project and it will probably run, but if there is another function that cannot be located, repeat the previous step, that is, search for the function name (both), comment them and rebuild the project.


woo-hoo! Very Happy Yes, it works. Thank you very much.

Hi Tomasz,

My good friend Héctor A. Medina (and EC v2 contributor), has programmed a macro based on your example that works fine and solves the problem.

Thank you very much indeed!


Regards.

My intention when posting it was to make it public domain. You're free to use it however you require.

Easy Code, I don`t say anything about IDE, sorry. Initialy I dislike it (not because it is bad or something else, it is just not for me - because thistool is only for Windows, I code for windows for now, but I hate windows from Vista and above)...

But your includes are perfect (the way you realize them I mean). There are more to clean (duplicates: for example "if defined APP_WIN64" could enclose not only whole structures or all import names, but structure parts or just specific to bitness import names) (Ofcourse that what I see as duplicate, may be isn`t it if you target that includes looks same in different assemblers and they can`t do things as fasm can)

I have a little suggestion about 1 peace of includes. this aproach is much faster - first three if blocks completely unneeded
Code:
macro extrn def
{
        define state 0
        match ename =as name:size, def  \{ define state used name \}
        match =0 ename =as name, state def \{ define state used name \}
        match =0 name:size, state def \{ define state used name \}
        if state | used def ; If fasm not parsed second condition in case of truliness first one - this row is workable
                extrn def
        end if
}    


P.S. Could I steel NTDDIs constants and way apis separated with NTDDI without including that they grabbed from your includes (I could have such information from other source - but you combine it in one place and in convinient form).

Hi ProMiNick,

I really appreciate your words about the Easy Code IDE!

Yes, you are right, the IDE was thought for MASM32 and Windows, which is its natural environment. The 2.0 and later versions were adapted to other assemblers.

Thanks for your suggestion, I will take it into account.

Regards!
