If I wanted to use the flat assembler within my code, how would I go about doing it. For example, if I wanted to write a simple program where a text box pops up, the user types in the name of the file to be assembled, and the program then calls flat assembler to assemble it (this is simplistic for example's sake). Fresh does this, I think, and I would like to know how.

In C, you can just do something like

Code:
system("program");
    

Where program is replaced by the name of the program and command line you wish to call. You WANT the quotes;)

For example, a common usage is

Code:
system("pause");
    

to use the shell pause command.

So, to use fasm to assemble example.asm, you'd do
Code:
system("fasm example.asm");
    


Is this what you wanted?

I think he mean including the source code of fasm in his own program and then call the assembler...? Do you Imagist?

Well, in Fresh, FASM is not external module, but built-in. You simply can download Fresh sources and see yourself. It is not too complex. In generally, you need to create one "interface" module to the core FASM modules. Read Privalov's documentation on FASM internals (it is included in Fresh sources also) - there are all requirements for the interface module functions. Fresh uses all core modules without any changes.
Of course you can use FASM as external program as well.

Regards

ShortCoder had what I wanted, but I wanted to be able to do it in FASM, not C. I may use the method JohnFound described.

Basically, I am building an HLL compiler which will compile the source code into a .asm file. There would be an option then to edit the .asm file, or to assemble it automatically.

This is really a Java question, but the problem might be with how I am calling FASM in the parentheses. Note that I am calling FASMW instead of FASM, since there is no file called FASM except a .ini in the source file.

Code:
public class PreCompiler{
      public static void compile(String filename){
           //String output=ReadWriteFile.readFile(filename);
           Process p=Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\Program-Files\fasmw152\FASMW.EXE");
                System.out.print(output);
   }
}
