I am an experienced MASM 5.0 programmer, but with FASM 1.52 operating under Windows XP Pro, I cannot get the "ORG" (or equivalent "$=") directive to do anything. I am using "format binary" output. What is the proper usage for the "ORG" directive?

Read the Faq?

Well in FASm the ORG directive is not going to jump you in the output file. Instead it will just setup the address reference counter. If you also want to jump arround (forward) in output file you have to use a form of "db" aka rb (reserve byte) and do some "simple" arithmetics for determining how much...

Why is this?

Well a decission of the creator i guess.

Since FASM is able to directly output binary without a linker imagine what will happen if ORG 07C00h would jump in output location... --> you will get a 7C00h od zeroes or whatever in front of your code Wink


MASM and TASM and other assemblers use the linker to fix this Wink

IMHO in SOl_ASM i will use another directive for this issue Wink

SOL_ASM is going just fine, but as all of my projects pretty slow in development Rolling Eyes

The slowness is because i have to work in other areas to make a living and i can only allocate small ammounts of time for other projects

I guess there will be a demo of SOL_ASM pretty soon
1-2weeks up to 1 month, keep me hot and it might be even faster Razz
