Hello
Im playing with some crusty old 16bit code with Borland 3.1 and TASM.
Some of it is written in C and some in ASM.
I am using medium memory model also...
Can fasm make .obj files so i can drop TASM?
I tried format COFF but maybe i need special public declaration for BC?

you just have to keep focused and take it one 'byte' at a time.

There is a FAQ on the top Evil or Very Mad

Depends. For 32-bit DPMI code, you need a COFF linker and have to use the COFF format. For 16-bit code, there is no way to use a linker, since FASM can't output 16-bit OMF objects.

NO. COFF is 32-bit or 64-bit only.

Solution:

- Pressure or pay Tomasz about OMF support in FASM
- Use NASM, Lempel-Ziv's LZASM, ...
- Brew OMF through format binary as "OBJ" (no idea how feasible ...)

It's Lazy Assembler not Lempel-Ziv's assembler :
