I put the following in my code and it caused FASM to report an "Out of memory" error (after taking a fairly long time to run). Once I realized that I had forgotten the backslashes before the curly braces on the inner struc definition and added them, FASM no longer reported the error. I think the lack of backslashes caused the macro processor to enter an infinite loop for some reason.

Is this a bug?

Code:
macro SP_DATA_NO_INIT   ; included in 'data_no_init.asm'
{
   struc SP_ITEM_DATA
   {
      ;-- INPUT -- MUST BE INITIALIZED PRIOR TO CALLING PROCS ------
      .wefwef      rd 1
      .qweqwe       rd 1
      .zxczxc   rd 1
      .tyutyu       rd 1
      ;-- OUTPUT ---------------------------------------------------
      .iopiop      rd 1
      .ertert       rd 1
   }
}

Thanks! Well, I admit I changed the field names to random garbage to hide what I was using the structure for. I'm pathologically secretive that way.

You have to "escape" the inner closing curly bracket:
Code:
...
      .ertert       rd 1
   \} ;<--- add the backslash here
}
