What you don't know, I think, is that all programs that are not translated to assembler are lost for ever. For exemple, If nobody translate all windows 98 to 100% assembler code, it will be lost for ever,... It is exactly the same for Linux, even redhat linux that seemes so fast, if nobody translate all linux redhat to 100% assembler code, it will be lost for ever,... You guys are living whitout thinking about problems that could be seen before the end of this century. Think it over, but your running to HLL is just a road to nowhere!!! Anf it could happend very soon!!!

and I am asking for LESS options...

Well don't use them. What's with the fascist tweak that wants to prohibit the options from others? So that you can show off how well you're doing without? Pissing contest?

Why are you using Fasm anyway, Real Men code in hex, you sissy!

For example, I don't understand why FASM is able to evaluate mathematical expressions like 1+2*3. a VERY GOOD assembler would oblige to calculate inside a comment:

MOV AL , 1+2*3 ==> STUPID, SHOULD BE FORBIDDEN
MOV AL , 7 ; Because 7 = 1+2*3 ==> THIS IS OK

It's only stupid because you omit commenting why 1+2*3 is there. Much easier to maintain in the future if there's any chance of the values changing. And if the change is upon someone's whim, then we'll have MOV AL,1+2*PISSLENGTH instead. You'd want to hardcode that?

You don't like it, don't use it. Simple as that. But you have no say as to how others want to write their code. You're no better or worse than anyone else.

How's about 'live and let live' instead of 'my way or highway'? Because the former at no point asks you to give up anything, whereas the latter asks for everybody else to give up everything that differs from yours.

(Edit: former/latter changed places, must be that Intel reverse syntax that got me Smile)
