I'm wondering how many people actually have Macs that would be interested in a potential Mac port of FASM. (Hopefully not putting too much pressure on Tomasz, heh. I don't actually have a Mac, so it's all moot to me. Just curious to quantify Mac OS users who frequent this forum.)

I can't cast a vote, none of the options fits with my position so this is my textual vote: "No, I haven't got one and I have no future plans".

BTW, I think that Latin American region has very few Mac users, such computers are more frecuent in Europe and USA (also Canada?).

Loco, you basically are in sync with probably many here: don't have, don't need. I did consider that (since I also feel that way), but I figured "no, and I hate Macs" was good enough (since if you don't want one, you probably don't like 'em). Granted, maybe a little too black-or-white / cut-and-dry options, but whatever, it's not meant to be scientific. Wink

fasm syntax must be used for many others platform.
68HC11 to texas DSP 32x families.
why?
just to be efficient and program multiplatforms with a single program.

LDAA XX, it can become mov A,XX
it's more simple, and mnémonics respect is not an obligation as all intructions have a binary translation.

"Don't like" is not the same as "hate".

No, but I was being less technical and more jokingly exaggeratory (or whatever). So, it's close enough for this poll. Wink

good idea.
and then mac will become less Precioussss

elitist machines, totally commercial company, IPOD, ITUNES, IBOOK, IMAC, IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
they are a little egocentrist...
how to boot a little system on a mac??

and material inside, it's like a chiness tictactoe. really hard to open and disassemble, forced to go to the shops...
it's an end user company. for miss and mister lambda.

wow,, it's beautyfullllllll

i voted yes, absolutlly, but i don't have macs.
just it's good to make asm, on all machines.
if my mobile phone had a fasm compiler, yeah, i can then code everywhere.

i want to make a precision:
I'm totally unable do mae a program as or better than fasm.. for the moment...

I don't use MacOSes but I think it'll be a good idea...then FASM will be available on 6 different OSes

FASM is already available on (at least) 9 OSes that I know of. But Tomasz has indeed somewhat planned / imagined Mach-O support, so it's more of a reality even than just fanciful talk.

lol I love edfed's "Precioussssss", like the creators of mac's are ugly, stupid, and searching for the Ring Smile. Mac's weren't meant for work, they were meant for the user. All of their products are totally centered around how they look and how user-friendly they are, nevermind the fact that THEY DON"T PERFORM!!! They're totally non-compatible with stuff, I havn't even heard of assembly programming on a mac before, and who would bother?? Maybe someone with a mac, but to convert a whole software line like OllyDbg and all other awesome ASM tools to mac's would take forever. I say just stick with Windows if you're a programmer.

Perhaps you searched wrong? Search for PPC assembly, or PowerPC assembly or Motorola 68000 assembly that was the processor used while in the IBM side was used the shitty 8086 and its moronic way of addressing memory.

The stick with Windows if you are a programmer, come on! what kind of constraint is that?

lol I mean in general os's other than mac, 'cause windows vs. mac is the usual two competitors I used their name instead of generalizing...
