Try compiling the following:

Code:
;
; Case I - Everything is fine
;

array           db      00h, 01h, 02h, 03h, \
                        04h, 05h, 06h, 07h

;
; Case II - Blank line after '\' => error: invalid argument.
;

array           db      00h, 01h, 02h, 03h, \

                        04h, 05h, 06h, 07h

;
; Case III - Comment line after '\' => error: invalid argument.
;

array           db      00h, 01h, 02h, 03h, \
;
                        04h, 05h, 06h, 07h
    


Is this a bug?

No, case I is the right way.
Cases II and III needed another '\' because otherwise you will have a line ending in ',' and other line starting by 04h

Well, I still think that the compiler should be able to skip blank or comment lines, though it seems that this is not fasm's architecture.

Thank pelaillo and JohnFound for the input.
