You will ned a working executable to assemble the executable. Yeah, I know, chicken-and-egg thing.

When you download fasm it has in the archive file an executable and the sources. So you can use the executable to compile a new executable file from the sources. And aside from a few changes where the date/time is newer the two executables should be byte-for-byte the same.

byte-for-byte?

Anyway, it reminds on the Operating Systems..
The answer is most obvious:it has to be self-evident from multiple perspectives.
(otherwise, it's only some operating turdware)

Thanks!

But how?
It seems that the source code doesn't have a makefile!
It will be easy to compile if so.

Download the FASM for Linux package. Unpack it somewhere. Enter in the directory "source/Linux/" and run in console:
Code:
../../fasm ./fasm.asm
    


The same way you can compile the versions for Windows - only enter the "source/Win32/" directory instead of "source/Linux/".

It isn't C code, there is no makefile. And actually it assembles, it doesn't really compile (although I think a lot of people conflate the two). See JohnFound's post above. Just run the executable from the download.
