Hi,
Is it possible to write a macro which will be exchanged with its result (calculated value) everytime it is executed in the code? To make it clearer, something like:
Code:
macro SQUARE value
{
  result = value * value;
}
...
mov eax, SQUARE 5
...
    


Any ideas? thanks

Short answer: No
Long Answer: Yes, but you (or someone else) will have to modify/reprogram fasm, else without modification/reprogramming, No

Inline macros have been discussed before. Perhaps someone knows where the old topics are and can post a link?

The very recent topic (just two rows below in this forum) contains a link to one of those old ones: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=6437

OK, then I'll try to find some other way. Probably something like this will do:

Code:
macro SQUARE rn*, v*
{
 MRV#rn = v*v
}
...
; and then
SQUARE 1, 10
mov eax, MRV1
    


Anyway thanks for the answer.

Well, you could use a C preprocessor...

If you have a C compiler, check if it has any options on preprocessing only. If it does, you could use it to generate a file, and then send this file to fasm.

It is kind of a long shot, but if you automate you compilation, it might give you the flexibility you are looking for...
