At me such question. IDA (Interactive dissassembler) produce asm source code which is incompatible not with masm not with tasm syntax. At least I cannot compile it. Whether probably to write macros for FASM which would allow to compile source codes given out IDA?

P.S. sorry for my english.

The newest IDA has AFAIK "TASM Ideal mode" which is very similar to fasm's one. Also IDA will NEVER create such output that you will be able to compile it without any manual change, neither for MASM, nor for any other assembler.

The author itself says IDA's output is not designed to recompilation, it is only for information.

It is very a pity. I have casually rewritten a code of the program and I very much would not like to copy all anew:\.

Where to find this option?

I don't think so. Besides this, DataRescue is located in Belgium.

Most of the time the goal is not to get a compilable text. What would one do with such a text? Recompile and link it to get a copy of the input binary program? The only legitimate situation I can imagine is when the source text has been lost and the owner of the program tries to recover it.

Threre are alternitives to recompiling the programs source. there are a few tricks that can add functionality to any program. one of my favorets is DLL injection. where by you wrote your dll and insert some code into the program and have it run it somehow. then have your dll modify the program to allow your dll to work the way you want. (this procedure is wondows specific but i am sure there are simialr methods for diffrent platforms.)

It is certainly interesting but not that that I wanted. Then a question such: What options to me need to be noted in IDA to receive an initial code most close to syntax masm or tasm?
