Hi guys!
Is there a way to use statically linked libraries (.lib) with FASM? I do not mean that .libs for the corresponding dll's - we don't need them at all I mean .libs that go along and invlude all the functions code...
Also I'm very interesting in the solution without using any external linker... Just FASM itself. Is it possible?
There is no answer to this question in the official FASM documentation. Examples that I've found on the net didn't use the mechanism of static libs... So I'm relly lost...

Thanx a lot for your attention to my post.

Hm, maybe I am not the proper guy to answer this question, because I don't like precompiled libraries at all, nor dll, nor lib, obj etc. Very Happy

But on the subject: You can compile your part in COFF or MS COFF format (ses the FASM manual for options you must set) then link libs and your object files together with some linker. (I think MS linker will help).
But, IMHO, better think about, how to make whole project at source level. It's not so hard as it looks at first glance. Wink

Regards.

When code size going bigger, code management getting difficult.
and when code management easier, code flexibility getting harder.
i agree TheRawGod, i agree JohnFound. Smile

These problems can't be solved easily!
if not, why vs.net so complex?

Yes, it is possible. There were several threads over at FASM section in Win32ASM Community messageboard on producing COFF files and linking them.

TheRawGod,
If you want to joint me in that adventure, give a look at this thread
http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=188

There is a lot still to do but IMHO this and the source level debugger are a *must* for fasm.

TheRawGod,

You can check the attachment in the post for some linking examples:

http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?p=423#423

The examples are about using Fasm with GoLink,Fasm+MS Link

The attachment in this post contains an example of using Fasm with
the static library masm32.lib:

Is there a way to link a static lib without creating a coff file? I just want to use some big number library for my dll. I do not like the idea of having to get a linker to link it though.

Roticv,

As you know, a static library is a collection of object files, so there is no way to link a static lib without creating COFF files.
