Anyone using it?
How easy is to interface it with some procedure coded in FASM?

I was using it in previous semester on Programming classes (and a few years ago as a hobby). IMO it is not worth using for programming (but it is about Pascal language, not particulary about FP), because it is too high level (C gives more control). But it seems to be doing well as a learning tool.
It is based on COFF modules (source is compiled to .o file and then linked). So you could write fasm code with 'format COFF' directive just like you would write fasm module for GCC (but remember about other calling convention!). Then link everyting together.

Just tested it. You're right.
I think its ok for those learning programming.
But it took more time to me to find out how to do something that I could do in 1 minute with FASM or a C compiler. Laughing
And it's a very big package.
Now that I can code most of things with FASM I'll use it only. FASM is fast, small package, clean sintax, makes small EXE's, have full low level access that assembly has, plus it has very powerful macros to help me develop fast.

It's because you are used to FASM and C. I didn't feel very well when I began learning C and its library, I was confused with it as you're with Pascal.
