I've been porting SEDForth to FASM, but have run into difficulty with one of the core macros that it uses.

%macro code 1
$1:
%endmacro

How would I code this using FASM?

I'm not sure what the macro exactly does but here's what I've got:
Code:
macro code arg1 {
arg1:
}
    


So now you could do code start or something.

To make it easier for conversion, this also does the same:
Code:
macro code 1 {
1:
}

Thanks for your help. The macro you supplied works perfectly for what I needed to finish the port of SEDForth to FASM. While there are a few (minor) problems left to fix, it compiles the handful of small test programs easily now. I've attached a copy here for those who want to look at it.


Description: This is the initial port of SEDForth to FASM. It *does* have a few minor problems, but works at least as well as the NASM version, at least in my quick tests.

Excellent!

I am porting RetroForth, and I want it to work on both Windows and Linux. Cool...

Well, porting RetroForth over will be a much larger task than porting SEDForth (which is why I started with a SEDForth port). As far as I know, you'll have to redo the entire dictionary macro system, a big pain since it is heavily dependent on NASM's xdefine macro functionality. I'll help where I can once I finish the 6.20 release (which brings a lot of cleanups to the core codebase). If you can get RetroForth ported over to FASM, please share the source - I'd love to see it Smile

I am at the point where I have an executable which crashes Sad

But I think it should be pretty soon... (if I didn't have lots of other things to do, like paying work Smile

If you send me a copy of the code you've got, I'll see if I can help you get it working. I have a decent amount of free time right now. If you've already got it to assemble you're doing good! Congratulations on your current progress.

I sent you a copy via email - I didn't want to post something half-baked on the board.

Thanks, and all the best.
