Just curious, what assembler do you think has the best syntax and why.(This includes macros and all other built in features to ease your coding):alright:

the "best" syntax is the "correct" syntax :)
Why? I like it, is that an accepted why? ;)

The one in my head. :grin:

I can't believe: more than 12 hours, FASM leads vs MASM. :grin:

no spasm? :grin:

look at the manuals fasm and MASM ....
Are U supprised ?

no? I'm not too...

In my opinion Fasm is more flexible than Masm but iczelion's tutorial are the best so your choise.

I prefer FASM but MASM ins't hard too it depends on your habits.
(almost)The same source after assembling is shorter and it is not the only reason.
You should to try both of them and then choose.

FASM - 39%
MASM - 43%

Not so bad after 3 days of voting.

But the poll falls too down in the thread list. Let bring it up... ;)

Seriously I cannot decide whether which asembler has the best syntax. For me I code in which ever I can. Whether it is fasm or masm, it does not matter. However I am somewhat shocked that the number of people that supported fasm was leading in the beginning. But of course one thing for sure, there is a greater pool of people coding in MASM (like me though I code in fasm for much smaller projects).

Guess what assembler has the most dedicated fans with lowest pool response latency... :P ;)

Well, we will see what will be the proportion at the end. :) Especially when we release the first working version of Fresh. ;) ;) ;)

i'm for Tasm !! Reason ? I've bought it 5 years ago :(

The list should have more items:Tasm,GoAsm,Spasm

contact a mod or admin to change it, its okay with me.

Guy on ASM,

No problem. :)

On the 11-th day:

MASM 40%
FASM 35%

Still, not bad. ;):)

you know:( nasm should be up there with those two, i use that more often than so compared to my masm and fasm packages. I only really use masm when im rushing and creating something smallfor someone, for some reason ,i actually like reinventing the wheel, not using others packages(if i can help it) and using procs that i've made in just about all my progs.

Guy on ASM,

What's the linker you are using with Nasm? Alink?
Posted on 2003-09-26 10:47:13 by Vortex

Guy on ASM,

yes alink, and for access to the functions of the dlls, i create the lib using alib, which is from the creator of alink.

Hi. I think that popularity of FASM is because it is written on FASM. It's sound like a magic. Like something eternally. Something infinitely. :) BTW, I think that popularity of the C language is because the same. :)
Also, FASM prove, that assembler programs can be highly portable and this is very important.

Regards.
