Hey,

I'm new in a forum, but i have programmed about 5 years with C++ and 2 years with a NASM. My frend told me about a FASM and i tried and loved it! Now i have one question.

Can someone tell to me is it possible to reuse same lable?

I mean something like this:
Code:
      mov ECX, 10

   _loop:
      dec ECX
      cmp ECX, 0
      ja loop

      release _loop

      mov ECX, 10

   _loop:
      dec ECX
      cmp ECX, 0
      ja _loop

    

I hope you answer quickly.

PS. Sorry my bad english.

You have a few problems above:
  • repeated label "_loop". Try either use unique label or use the anonymous "@@" and "@B" set.
  • What is "release"? It is not an opcode or an assembler directive. Is it a macro you have defined?
Maybe you can try this:
Code:
      mov ECX, 10

   _loop1:
      dec ECX
      cmp ECX, 0
      ja _loop1

      mov ECX, 10

   _loop2:
      dec ECX
      cmp ECX, 0
      ja _loop2     
or this:
Code:
      mov ECX, 10

   @@:
      dec ECX
      cmp ECX, 0
      ja @b

      mov ECX, 10

   @@:
      dec ECX
      cmp ECX, 0
      ja @b     
BTW: you don't need the cmp instructions if there is no code between dec and jcc. So you can also do this:
Code:
      mov ECX, 10

   @@:
      dec ECX
      jnz @b

      mov ECX, 10

   @@:
      dec ECX
      jnz @b     
Lastly, you can use the loop to make the whole thing very neat and tidy
Code:
      mov ECX, 10
   @@:
      ;other code goes here
      loop @b

      mov ECX, 10
   @@:
      ;other code goes here
      loop @b
