Code:
cr equ 13
lf equ 10
CR = 13
LF = 10
crlf equ cr,lf
CRLF equ CR,LF

db "hello",crlf,"world",0
    


impossible to do a CRLF = CR,LF cause = is a label/value assignation
and CR,LF is not a value, it is two values separated by comma.
etc...

Ah, I forgot! Too much pain medicine. define does the substitution but does not resolve equates
"Never use preprocessor with assembly directives" - We do it all of the time. Example:
Code:
a equ 1
b=a    
I'm not going to follow John's stupid absolute rules. I write code however I want and don't give a damn what John thinks.

JohnFound did and does a diligent and extensive job making Fresh. I would rather respect his experience and rules evolved out of it. But I try to avoid following unfounded dogmata. That is why I wanted to know the reasoning behind his statement.
