Hello,

I would like to know if there is something like nested functions in fasm preprocessor. This way one could do something like

Code:
start:
 func1:
  func2:
 func3:    


So the nest is defined by spaces or tab spaces (further apart from start of line = deeper in nest).

Using it like this
Code:
start.func1.func2    


Is there such feature or similiar? Thank you,

JVFF

I tried to design some clever macros doing such things:
Code:
macro undefine [name]
 { local undefined
   name equ undefined }

macro func name
 { match any, subs@func
   \{ tmp@func equ subs@func
      restore subs@func
      subs@func equ tmp@func,name \}
   match , subs@func
   \{ restore subs@func
      subs@func equ name \}
   match parent, fullname@func
   \{ fullname@func equ parent\#.\#name
      fullname@func: \}
   match , fullname@func
   \{ fullname@func equ name \}
   subs@func equ
   name: }

macro endf
 { match subs, subs@func \{ undefine subs \}
   restore subs@func
   restore fullname@func }

fullname@func equ    

Use them like:
Code:
func start
 func func1
  func func2
  endf
 endf
 func func3
 endf
endf


func start2
 call func1             ; calls start2.func1
 call start.func1
 call start.func1.func2

 func func1
 endf
endf

well - there are no "functions" in FASM's preprocessor. Did you mean macros, procedures or just nested labels (namespaces) - there was thread about these, try searching.

Thank you very much Smile I'm slowly migrating from NASM to FASM and I'm quite perplexed by it's macro abilities. That's exactly what I needed. I will try to learn more about macros so I can do some changes to it so I can use it with proc, invoke, and as labels. Again Thank you,
