I only use ASM, I find the rest useless except for Basic to teach the basics.

I consider AT&T syntax as all the other assemblers. Just Fasm the best Very Happy

Can we say that fasm macros are a different language from MASM macros? Or that fasm macros are a different language from asm?

Macros aren't 'languages' are they? Anyway I don't use them so I don't care.

my mind is simple:
asm is asm (x86, pic, motorola, etc)
c is C, borland, gcc, etc
java is java, netbeans, eclipse,.?
etc for all other languages categories.
qbasic is qbasic, basic, picbasic, tibasic, etc basic.

do you take it?

I believe it's a good idea to know a whole bunch of languages, and use the right one for the job.

As for languages used in one project, it depends a bit on how you defined "used" and "project". Most stuff I do will only use one language for the main program, which would typically be C++, or Java or C# for school/work related things. C++ sometimes gets used with external assembly modules, though, and I predict I'll make use of JNI and/or P/Invoke in the future.

Apart from the main executable, I often use other languages during the build process. Batch files for not-so-tough jobs, Python for less trivial scripting, and if you consider XML a "language"... well Smile

So I voted "3 or more". Most stuff I do is single-language, though.

I hate scripting languages for "projects" instead of just small scripts that help your workflow only. I know Perl (just pattern matching though) because Total Commander can use it for multi-rename, I use it a lot... and in that context I am in 100% endorsement... but to code a bloated app in a scripting language, and not for improving workflow... hmm that's what I call "bloat" Razz

so what are your suggestions on projects written in PHP, Python, Ruby, etc?
rewrite them in C/asm?

wow I can't imagine that... Wink

No, Borsuc is just suggesting that you hate them. Borsuc said nothing about rewriting them. Cool

Right tool for the right job - I am fully agree with that.
Every particular program needs the most appropriate language.
And its name is FASM, you know. Razz
