For example, I need a macroincstuction for debug output:
Code:
macro DebugOut v1, v2 
...
    

And I need 2 parameters: a value to output (v1) and color (v2). But sometimes I become very lazy and I don't want to write color. Does FASM support some features for assemblying with default parameter value? Now I have to use this:
Code:
...
 if ~('c'#v2 eq 'c')
   mov   cl, v2
  else
   mov   cl, clWhite
  end if
...
    

It works,
Code:
DebugOut rax, clRed
DebugOut rax
    

but I hope there is another way.Smile

(...) you can provide the default value for argument, by placing the = followed by value after the name of argument. Then if the argument has an empty value provided, the default value will be used instead.

Oh, thanks. I've read russian translation of this document. Probably it is too old, because I didn't find this information here.
