While converting some old TASM code to FASM I've found one feature of TASM that I have never used in FASM before: & as dummy argument separator in macros body.

I can't find similar feature in FASM manual so I suspect that situation might be similar to ifndef: you need to write own macro to handle it. However if anyone has already solved the problem of using TASM & dummy arguments and symbols in FASM macro I would be grateful for any tips.

ACP,

Dou you mean & macro operator that replaces following parameter with its actual value? It is used (mostly) to concatenate symbols in macro body (fasm uses # operator for this).

If you post some examples, it may become clearer.

Thank you baldr! This was exactly what I've been looking for.

I'm porting DESQView API library to FASM and most of code are either equates (no porting needed to be done there) and macros. Thanks to your tip I've been able to fix some errors I had during compilation and first example file compiled successfully under FASM for the first time Smile Now I just need to fix some errors I've made during porting and hopefully everyone will be able to write DESQView apps with FASM.
