The following coding has been given in our Assembly Language course book, but it is not running on FASM ( Windows version). What shall i do.
Thanx.

Code:
; This probram adds two 8-bit words in the memory locations
;called NUM1 and NUM2. The result is stored in the memory location called
; RESULT. If there was a carry from teh addition it will be stored as 0000 
;0001 in the location CARRY.

DATA SEGMENT

NUM1 DB 15h  ;First number is stored here
NUM2 DB 20h  ; Second number stored here
RESULT  DB  ? ; Put sum here 
CARRY DB ?  ; Put any carry here
DATA ENDS
CODE SEGMENT
           ASSUME CS:CODE, DS:DATA
START:    MOV AX, DATA                        ;Initialize data segment
               MOV DS, AX ; register            ; register
               MOV AL, NUM1            ; Get the first number
               ADD AL, NUM2            ; Add it to 2nd number
               MOV RESULT, AL          ; Store the result
               RCL AL, 01                ; Rotate carry into LSB
               AND AL, 00000001B      ; Mask out all but LSB
               MOV CARRY, AL ; Store the carry result
              MOV AX, 4C00H
               INT 21h
CODE ENDS
               END START

More literal conversion:
Code:
FORMAT MZ

SEGMENT _DATA ; CODE and DATA are reserved words in fasm,
              ; so other have to be used for segment names

NUM1 DB 15h ;First number is stored here
NUM2 DB 20h ; Second number stored here
RESULT DB ? ; Put sum here
CARRY DB ? ; Put any carry here

SEGMENT _CODE

START: MOV AX, _DATA ;Initialize data segment
MOV DS, AX ; register ; register
MOV AL, [NUM1] ; Get the first number
ADD AL, [NUM2] ; Add it to 2nd number
MOV [RESULT], AL ; Store the result
RCL AL, 01 ; Rotate carry into LSB
AND AL, 00000001B ; Mask out all but LSB
MOV [CARRY], AL ; Store the carry result
MOV AX, 4C00H
INT 21h

ENTRY _CODE:START

Very thanks. But you didnot tell me what is the problem with my code. After all i have to depend on my book, for reference. Are all my code incapable of running on FASM?

Your book is for the different dialect of assembly language - that's why the translation was needed. You might try reading the fasm's Programmer's Manual (especially section 1.2) to see what the differencies are.

Also, your code is a DOS program, you should have posted in the DOS forum instead.
