Hi friends,

Is it possible to code string macros such as CATSTR for Fasm?

fasm9,

Thanks for the links;but I am looking for string macros which can be
adapted from Masm to Fasm.It would be good to have a CATSTR macro
for Fasm.

fasm9,

CATSTR is a predefined macro used by the Macro Assembler (Masm)
It concatenates one or more strings to a single string.

Code:
num     =       7
newstr  CATSTR  <3 + >, %num, < = > , %3 + num ; "3 + 7 = 10"
    

assign the string "3 + 7 = 10" to newstr.

Full information about using macros in masm32:

ok. thanks

i wouldn't learn masm, imho, fasm is equal to masm.
moreover, fasm is *open*.

PS: slightly off-topic, i see something similar like this in lisp..

FASM has no ability to return values from macros. You cannot use a macro as a function.

Maybe,in the future,we can think this feature (macros returning values
like functions) can be added to Fasm.

you can check out my library that has some basic functions for string work. StrLen, StrCat are there. Still working on others. It uses a macro that privalov provide so it doesn't put unused functions in.

Beaware that the CVS is broken and it won't let me commit a fix copy.
