I've started to see somethings about TASM, because I want to play with it a little bit, but I want to know if there is any way to develop a simple micro-kernel written on it, also, what is the full command to compile it?

Best Regards,
Nathan Paulino Campos

Micro-kernel as in microkernel OS architecture?

First of all, make sure you have TASM32 5.3, or 5.0 at the very least.
Learn about built-in OOP support in TASM and about its cool macro engine <-- these two really save you a lot of coding.

To compile the code you need perfect understaning about segmentation (both in real mode and protected mode) and how to properly declare/define stuff in TASM.

Actually, you should thoroughly read TASM32 User Guide. It will tell you things you won't find anywhere else (mainly because most people use MASM).
