Hi friends,

The COFF linker Polink from Pelles C package can be used to link Masm/Fasm/GoAsm object files. This linker has allmost the same command line parameters used by MS Link.Polink can use Masm import libraries;just it cannot handle OMF type object files.

Polink creates smaller executables compared to MS Link, Iczelion's paint example reduced from 3072 to 2048 bytes.

Pelles C software development kit is free to use:




Thanks to Jeremy Gordon for his GoAsm example source code.

Thanks for the link, its a nice linker that seems to perform well with a smaller output file.

Have you fathomed how to save a RC script in the IDE, I can get it to work and its well written but the save option is greyed out so I could not save it.

Hi Hutch,

Yes,I had also this problem.An easy solution is to close the project window after being O.K. with the resource editor. The IDE will display a messagebox asking if you want to save
the file (here,the resource file) The rest is easy.
