While experimenting/debugging we sometime need to disable some code, often several lines.
It would be nice if FASM could provide a simple way to do it.
For example
Code:
/*
some disabled code here
*/

Code:
match +,-{
some disabled code here
}    
works if you don't have embedded closing curly brackets ('}') characters.

I prefer something like
Code:
variant = 7
if variant = 0
…some well-formed code…
else if variant = 1
…some well-formed code too…
else if…
…
…
else if variant = 6
…some really good well-formed code…
else
  display "You're crazy, don't you know?", 13, 10
  error
end if    
Well-formedness is defined as all braces are matched, whatever they are (just as in XML)


booter,

In your case simple if 0 … end if will do.

This only works if there are no preprocessor directives within the if/endif.
