I was wondering if the "Format" directive could be extended so that we don't have to rename 'xxx.bin' manually after compile.

Very basic example:
Code:
;mycursor.asm
Format BIN '.cur' ;  ??? default '.bin'

file 'hand.cur'
    

Produces a copy of hand.cur in a file called 'mycursor.cur'. ???

If you use the command line version of fasm then you can select whatever extension you want. For the GUI then maybe the author can add a dialogue box to select the extension. Some OS's don't use filename extensions so there would seem to be little sense in defining one in the source code.

I can remember there was a discussion about it, but I've learnt a clever batch command now that makes it just as easy to use batch scripts and add a right click "Compile As..." option.
