Here is a simple example demonstrating the usage of libc.lib with Masm. This library comes with the free Visual C++ Toolkit 2003

.model flat,stdcall
option casemap:none

include    \masm32\include\
include    \masm32\include\
include    \masm32\include\
include    \masm32\include\

includelib  \masm32\lib\kernel32.lib
includelib  \masm32\lib\user32.lib
includelib  \masm32\lib\masm32.lib
includelib  libc.lib ; CRT static library


dest    db 'strcat example : ',0
        db 20 dup(0)
source  db 'Hello my friend',13,10,0
string2 db 'friend',0
crlf    db 13,10,0

buffer  db 20 dup(?)


invoke strcat,ADDR dest,ADDR source
invoke StdOut,ADDR dest
invoke strstr,ADDR dest,ADDR string2
call  print
invoke strchr,ADDR dest,114 ; look for 'r'
call  print
invoke ExitProcess,0

print  PROC
invoke dw2hex,eax,ADDR buffer
invoke StdOut,ADDR buffer
invoke StdOut,ADDR crlf
print  ENDP

END start

      Thanks for your post. I am just asking you a simple question

includelib  \masm32\lib\kernel32.lib
includelib  \masm32\lib\user32.lib
includelib  \masm32\lib\masm32.lib
includelib  libc.lib ; CRT static library
  It seems that you have set your lib path correctly.
  But I just set the path as the attachement in Radasm, and it does not work.
  I am using 2003 and radasm ,the current path is :
  D:\Microsoft Visual Studio.Net\Vc7\lib\libc.lib
  Would you please help me?

Hi Luckrock,

RadASM , does it accept path names with spaces?

D:\Microsoft Visual Studio.Net\Vc7\lib\libc.lib

There are space characters between Microsoft & Visual / Visual & Studio

My trick was to copy libc.lib to my project folder. ( I know, this is not the best method )

It's a good idea to use C libray, but the problem is how to translate .h to .inc
We can do that by hand.
But if there is a program that can do such a chore will be appreciated by all of us.
Any one know what and where is the program that can translate *.h to *.inc ?

Japheth's h2incx :

This tool's purpose is to convert C header files to MASM include files. It is much more powerful than Microsoft's h2inc tool. The main purpose is to convert the Win32 include files, but it should work with any C header files as well. It is a simple Win32 console application, but a 32bit DOS extended binary version is included as well to be used on Non-Win32 platforms.

i posted an example of using libc.lib with masm in this thread, or directly this attachment.
it contains a custom made include file, and it was made with help of the great
h2incx by japheth. Many thanks to japheth for making this utility.

Hi drizz,

Nice work.

Here is my own for libc.lib from MS VC++ Toolkit 2003

Yes, that was what I always wanted.
