tom tobias, you have a wicked sense of irony. But remember that a lot of people here use English as a second (or third) language and may not realise what you are really trying to say. Parhaps you can be just a little bit less succinct and a little bit more transparent also?

If your C compiler (e.g., GCC) is too slow, either turn off optimizations (until you're done developing, no -O and definitely no -O2) or use a different compiler (e.g. OpenWatcom). Yes, a makefile can help, but makefiles are hardly portable (at least, to my eyes), and they are a bit annoying to write (and worse to read, yuck!). But, in theory, they can be useful (not having to recompile a large project over and over and over again on a slow computer).

Lots of little files are annoying (to me) unless the project is fairly big. Plus, don't forget it wastes clusters. Smile Besides, I believe GCC does optimize better if you compile all the modules in one go (-funit-at-a-time ?). If you have trouble navigating around a 5000 LOC file, use vi/emacs/joe + tags.

btw, 2, if you love using FASM to just generate ...erm... files?..then you should see some other topics regarding outputting TGA and BMP files, also using FASM to produce some imput data to other programs. The macro facilities are the BEST for this.
We have IDs here in Estonia, that are 11 numbers long. Mine for example is 38410190245 and from that you can read persons sex, date of birth and I needed to generate some random million of them Very Happy I used FASM and btw it also automatically checked the validity of this.

(I must have it somewhere Razz)


Yes,my ways are strange. You have 2 remember that I have hex edited
EXEs,MIDI,monochome bitmaps,and of course save files of games.
I usually do a lot of C programming. It my opinion,C is the next best thing 2
assembly. I think ASM is the coolest thing in existence,but I probably won't
do my coding in it much because it's time consuming.

Fasm is better than TASM/MASM. is this true? And can we build every programs with Fasm? (I believe = YES! and you ??? )

MASM has 3 things FASM doesnt: inline macros, support in "official" circles, and symbolic information.

Yup, we need heavier optimizations to the extreme... Razz

look at the new chips, they are so much complex and optimized than previous versions (i.e efficient power consumption, etc). Wink
