I wanted to create a struc which after defining all data in it would also create a constant which consists of dot. I found it impossible. Code:
Code:
struc name data {
 . dd data
 .#\.size = $-. }

test1   name 100    
I got "Error: Illegal instruction" test1 .size=$-test1
So it seems that fasm puts space (20h) before the dot in constant name and it cannot define such constant then. Any other option like .#.size = $-. or .#=.size = $-. didn't work. I couldn't also get it done using match anyhow. Is there any solution for this?

Ooops. Sorry. Nearly equal example is shown in documentation. I checked it now. Should be:
Code:
struc name data {
 . dd data
 .size = $-. }

test1   name 100    
Shame on me Neutral for not looking into documentation before posting ne thread.

i think you don't need to escape "." when used inside name, it is regular part of name just like any other character, only some of whole names have special meaning. So i believe this should work too (and is closer to what you wanted with your original macro, because it leaves with another global label than in your 2nd post)
Code:
struc name data { 
 . dd data 
 .#.size = $-. } 

test1   name 100    


correct me if i am wrong
