I can't get the display_offset macro (from the manual) to work in my elf file ('format ELF'') :/
it fails with this error:
Code:
macros/macros.asm [7] display_offset [1]:
    d1 = '0'+ $ shr 12 and 0Fh
error: invalid expression.    

I remember having this error some other time, but I cat seem to rememder when (and I can't find any posts about this)... or if I got the answer to it.

I've tried calling the macro from both data and code sections - still same error...

but if I add this line before the display_offset line "display $"
I get this bizzare error:
Code:
flat assembler  version 1.57
W
_lib.asm [54]:
display_offset
macros/macros.asm [11] display_offset [5]:
    if d1>'9'
error: invalid use of symbol.

This happens when $ is relocatable symbol (and so the d1 also becomes the relocatable symbol), when the object or PE format is selected for output.

It was asked (in different variants) many times already, so I think it qualifies to the FAQ. I will add it.
