I was trying to make a version string macro like this:

Code:
; Some version information
VERSION_MAJOR     = 0
VERSION_MINOR     = 1
VERSION_REVISION  = 0
VERSION_BUILD     = 0     

section '.data' data readable writeable

        ; Version String
        version_string          db      `VERSION_MAJOR # "." # `VERSION_MINOR # "." # `VERSION_REVISION # " build " # `VERSION_BUILD, 0
    


I must be doing something wrong because it isn't working Wink

Could someone help me please Very Happy

Cheers Wink

Code:
macro version_string [string*]
{
        common version_string string
}



VERSION_MAJOR     fix 0
VERSION_MINOR     fix 1
VERSION_REVISION  fix 0
VERSION_BUILD     fix 0

version_string db `VERSION_MAJOR # "." # `VERSION_MINOR # "." # `VERSION_REVISION # " build " # `VERSION_BUILD, 0    



` - works only in macroinstruction???

From Understanding fasm, section "Tokenization of source and line makers":
Quote:
(...)lines that are preprocessed, are actually the sequences of tokens, not the raw text of the source. And such sequences can be born in a two different ways - either created directly from the source text, or generated by macroinstruction. Thus we've got a two different "line makers" - one being "source reader" and one "macroinstruction processor".

As we have seen, there is a bunch of special commands, like concatenation operator or LOCAL directive, that may be issued while macroinstruction generates a new lines. In a similar way, there are special commands that are understood and obeyed only by the source reader.(...)

PS. I would recommend doing it this way:
Code:
VERSION_MAJOR     equ 0
VERSION_MINOR     equ 1
VERSION_REVISION  equ 0
VERSION_BUILD     equ 0

match major:minor:revision:build, VERSION_MAJOR:VERSION_MINOR:VERSION_REVISION:VERSION_BUILD
{ version_string db `major # "." # `minor # "." # `revision # " build " # `build, 0 }
