idk how hard this could be or how easy it might be,

i saw something like below eg.

Code:
.no_zero_return:
  mov eax,NO_ZERO_RETURN
  jmp somewhere
    


then in the somewhere
cinvoke wsprintf,buff,<'the return error is : %i'>,eax
msgbox, or printf buff

i am thinking,
why not a macro that able to return current scope name

eg.
Code:
; global variable
errscope db 0xFF dup(0)

.no_zero_return:
  error here
  jmp somewhere
    

after error here or whatever magic name, errscope would have ".no_zero_return:"

so we skip the double naming job.

then user can choose to output those error using printf or debug.print or etc mechanism.

Hi sleepsleep,
i wrote once macros for that at compile time to enable
logging,ondebugging, output to console or file of
symbols,addresses,module names,regs etc.
they store names/functions only if LOG/DEBUG=TRUE
it was very effective, iirc
bad is that i cannot find them at the moment, perhaps
in the develop\macro\mrk_macrow.inc of x32lab

Cheers,

If you don't mind losing the colon you can use a struc:
Code:
struc error somewhere {
    .:                                       ;define the label name
      local   .skip
       call    .skip                   ;put error text address on stack
    db      `.                      ;place the error text
    .skip:
     pop     eax                     ;retrieve the error text address
    jmp     somewhere               ;jump to error handler
}

;some dummy test code
       test    ecx,ecx
     jnz     .no_zero_return
;...

.no_zero_return error err_handler

err_handler:
;   cinvoke wsprintf,buff,<'the return error is : %s'>,eax
;...
