Hi all,

I'm a bit new to x86 assembly programming. I was wondering what are the arthmetic operators for fasm? Like +, -, etc. I did a quick look through the documentation, but using / for division comes up with reserved word error when I try to compile.

fasm uses the standard +, -, *, / for basic arithmetic.

Show the code that gave an error. Division definitely uses /
Code:
mov eax, 10 / 3

I'm trying to make a wrapper for Raylib, its a WIP.

https://github.com/raysan5/raylib/blob/master/src/raylib.h

Code:
;this works as well
format PE GUI 4.0

include 'macro/struct.inc'
include 'macro/import32.inc'
include 'macro/export.inc'

;this works
RAYLIB_VERSION_MAJOR = 4
RAYLIB_VERSION_MINOR = 5
RAYLIB_VERSION_PATCH = 0
RAYLIB_VERSION = "4.5"  

PI = 3.14159265358979323846f
DEG2RAD = PI / 180.0f ;this produces a error
RAD2DEG = 180.0f / PI ;same error

;this works too
section '.idata' import data readable writeable
        library raylib, 'RAYLIB.DLL'

        import raylib,\
        InitWindow,'InitWindow'

fasm able only to define floating point constants, not produce operations over them.
All arithmetic operations operate only integers and they are only integer operations.
so, applying integer operation over floating point constant cause error.

That not mean thou have no ability to produce fp operations at all.
Thou could define fp constant in virtual memory and emulate producing of such operations (split producing of mantissa and so on...).
With much of time thour and preprocessor you both could do so. But more productable to calculate fp outside of fasm and define only fp results of such calculations.

For floats you need to precalculate.
Code:
PI = 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288
DEG2RAD = 0.0174532925199432957692369076848861271 ; pi /180
RAD2DEG = 57.2957795130823208767981548141051703 ; 180 / pi    
Note: Those have far too much extra precision for the standard 64-bit IEEE, but fasm will round it to fit.

Thanks for the tips. This has come in handy.
