I want to provide a version of FASM Z80 version for some LINUX users and not sure what is the difference between the LINUX version and LIBC. Both is ELF format. Shocked

Is the LINUX FASM an executable program for LINUX ?
I don't use LINUX by now. Wink

The console FASM for Linux is native Linux application and this way it possibly will not run in other Unix systems. (Because it uses Linux syscalls for all I/O - file access, console write, etc.)
The LIBC version of FASM uses LIBC functions for the same purpose and because of this is little bit more portable across the different POSIX compliant OSes.
In general, the proper port of FASM for some particular OS should not use LIBC. IMHO, using LIBC is "quick and dirty" way to port FASM.
