Hi all !

a) Why FAsm does not have an option for listing generation ?
b) Is there any way to get the preprocessed and assembled listings ?
c) Why FAsm does not have a uniform way of declaring sections for all
formats.
d) Can we not specify format on command line ?
e) Why declaring a section twice creates two sections of same name
and type ?

Somebody, Please Answer !

a-b) See:
http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=3908
http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=4490
http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=4645
(and use this thread: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=4816 as a general reference)
c) Because each of the format has different sets of settings and features. Blame the format specification designers.
d) Read about the SSSO principle here (this text was also originally posted on this board, you may find it if you try)
e) The general answer (also to be found in a few places on this board) is: it is a work of linker to merge sections of the same name, assembler has nothing to do with it. This is also somehow related to the SSSO principle and to the "flatness" of fasm - which means that everything in output, including order of all things, exactly reflects the source code.
