any body remembers how to create .fas section? do not be confused with .fas debugging symbols file.

iirc, there was a way to force fasm to stuff all data and imports along with code into one flat section named .fas or .flat i dont remember.

p.s. please change title to reflect correct section name {.fas|.flat}
pps. i really need this to test some nt loader specific bugs.

IIRC, '.flat' is the default section. The trick is to not use a "section" statement. Wink

There is no need to force anything. Place your section with any name you choose (you can also choose to name it ".flat") and put all your code, imports, exports, data, etc. in there.
Code:
format pe

section '.flat' readable writeable executable

entry $
        call $

data import
        dd 0x01234567
end data

data export
        dd 0x76543210
end data

my_data dd 0xdeadbeef
my_string db 'Hello, world!',13,10,0

Btw. it's not necessary to call the section '.flat'. You can choose any name, as long as it fits into 8 characters.
