Is it possible to add "comment" to MS COFF file in FASM? This comes handy when you want to create "default library dependency", instead of having to specify every lib in command line.

In MSVC, you use following:
Code:
#pragma comment(linker, "/entry:main")
#pragma comment(lib, "kernel32")
    


I presume this is not yet possible in FASM. How hard would it be to add it?

How do the comments get presented inside the .obj file? Is it a separate section (data xx/end data)? Maybe it can be emulated, like imports, with macros?

Yeah, that's it. Good job!

Sidenote: MSVC compiler sets align for .drectve section to 1, not 4. So technically for best compatibility with MSVC, one should also use "align 1". But I am not really sure if it matters anywhere.
