Hello guys,

I have been searching around with no luck. Probably some of you might want to kill me for my question...but here it goes Very Happy

Have anyone managed to create macros in FASM to be able to fully parse and compile MASM source code format with FASM?

Many of you might be totally in disagree with that idea, but well, many of us assisted to Iczelion tutorial classes in MASM... Smile

So, my idea is to use FASM but without having to adapt all MASM source code to FASM (and I don't want to compile it in separate MASM/FASM OBJs Smile)

Or maybe it's totally impossible that idea of FASM fully compile MASM format? In that case, what the heck, I will suffer with mixing MASM/FASM Smile

Thanks!!!

I think with all the obscure things that can be put into MASM code (think macros for one) that it would extremely difficult (and perhaps impossible) to do with just macros alone. You would need to limit just what you want to parse, then you might have a chance at achieving something working on simple cases.

It would be a very nice project to work on alorent. Unfortunately, I don't think a full MASM parse would be possible with macros alone. Maybe a small lib written in FASM to parse MASM to FASM. ASM. Smile

Hehe, MASM could parse the MASM source and create a binary, then you use 'file' directive to include it in the fasm code Twisted Evil

I think the point is to take the dependency AWAY from the MASM compiler Smile.

I use that term quite often to reference... just about anything

It's kind of hard to tell sarcasm with you Revolution, expecially without facial expressions (and if you post a smiley face that's just not funny.)
