Hello Tomasz Grysztar and Community:

Congratulations for Fasm, it's an excellent assembler.

I'm working in a script compiler that uses Fasm. It will be possible to the installer to install my compiler and also optionally install Fasm into the user computer under C:\Program FIles\Fasm

I want to freely distribute Fasm through my Setup WIzard which is my copyright software, my question is: could exist some legal problem doing it?



Regards.

Surprisingly Tomasz doesn't answer, my understanding: you can include FASM that way (FASM isn't GPL), but you should mention Tomasz's (C) on FASM and the fact that FASM is licensed and available separately, with link to "flatassembler.net".

I don't really understand about all the licensing things, but I think it is much simpler than that. IMO, as long as you make a clear separation as to what is yours and what is tomasz's, I think you are good to go. Its called Honesty Licence ;D

Guys, Tomasz clearly stated his position in LICENSE.TXT. Had you read it?

That's the spirit. TBH, I haven't donated yet coz I am broke and my boss won't give me a raise, probably will never give me a raise. I don't know why coders are paid the lowest in the whole universe. It's a total insult to human intelligence.

Hi,

You can now take a look at my compiler a:

http://www.teimsi.org/tsi-download/programs/TeimsiFreeSetupWizard.exe

It's better than a Javascript or Php to .exe (I think Smile ). It uses the FASM assembler. Example:

Code:
var number1=0.0
_direct{
    fld1
    fld1
    faddp st1, st
    fsqrt
    fstp qword [number1+reg.vo]
}
alert(number1) // Shows square root of 2 = 1.4142135...
    



Greetings to Tomasz Grysztar.

Kind Regards.

uydario,

It's quite surprising that your installer require fasm 1.68 nowadays.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I think Fasm 1.68 is Ok, my project has things to be done, so far from the version topic.

Did you like the TEIMSI language? I hope so. Smile


Kind Regards.

I'd suggest using FASM.dll: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=6239
If you use FASM.dll, you would also have to include FASM's licence.txt in documentation or somewhere. As for distributing an installer of anything that is free with your app, it probably is *always* fine.
I also use FASM in a scripting language, namely Lua.
