Privalov, I have the following suggestions for comments in fasm: Very Happy
1. Bypass comments on continuated lines. Ex.
Code:
invoke CreateWindowEx,NULL,_class,_title,\
  WS_OVERLAPPED+WS_VISIBLE+WS_CAPTION+WS_THICKFRAME+WS_SYSMENU,\
;WS_VISIBLE,\
  144,128,320,200,NULL,NULL,[wc.hInstance],NULL
    

2. Inline comments as C++ pair /* commented */. Ex.
Code:
invoke CreateWindowEx,NULL,_class,_title,\
  WS_OVERLAPPED+WS_VISIBLE;*+WS_CAPTION*;+WS_SYSMENU,\
  144,128,320,200,NULL,NULL,[wc.hInstance],NULL

Hi Privalov,
There is a way to provide these enhancements in the ver. 1.50?

At least the first, because if I tell the fasm to continue a row, and the comments will be neglected, the logical consequence is that the continuation must be the next valid row. Doesn't it?

Why the row with a commend only would be "invalid"?
The logic of this operator is that it concatenates two lines into one, no matter what those line contain.
When you comment out a line in a chain, just put the backslash before the semicolon and all will be nice and logical.

Sorry, I mean "empty", not "invalid".

The commented line is "empty" for the preprocessor, in other words it contains only CRLF or equivalent.

The concatenator operator issues an error if the line that follows is empty. A different measure for the same concept.

IMO, the backslash before the semicolon is unnecessary. Wink

Still, you have the last word, in case my arguments were not enough to convince you.

There is no error when the next line is emtpy - you've got an error only when there's no next line at all.

Yes, you are right.

What about the second suggestion, please?
