I found a copy of The Netwide Assembler NASM(1.5a), and once I start assembling anything, i get this:

nams: invalid option to '-w'

I'm kinda stuck with this. I've been trying everything throughout the day to fix it.

if you want help with fast quality help i suggest you use masm. you will not find another assembly board around like this one. most people who visit this board use masm. check out this thread http://www.asmcommunity.net/board/index.php?topic=86.

greg, what command-line parameters are you passing to nasm?
What version are you using? And are you trying to assemble masm-style code?

smurf, i don't want masm :- ) I think this should make things clear.

f0dder,
I'm not passing anything to nasm at all, I just hit "Assemble" from the IDE menu. version 1.5a. I'm not trying to assemble masm-style code. (Why do you think I started learning nasm?!?:- )

Hrm, IDE menu? The IDE you're using is probably passing bogus
parameters to nasm :). Or perhaps you're using a bugged version
of nasm (not that there's any entirely bugfree versions available ;)).

Also, why do you want to use nasm instead of masm? Do you have
a real use? (The nice way ORG works, easy binary output, etc).
Or do you prefer the syntax? ( enforced, no need to write
OFFSET all the time - this is also a valid reason). Or do you just want
to look 31337 and "microsoft stinks and all they made sucks"?
Just curious - nasm users seem to come in those three flavours.
:grin:

There are a few reasons why I choose NASM. First of all I would get rid of all the Win fuss & muss, (include files, awkward invoke's, and such which would distract me from learning the assembly language. It's a personal thing), secondly, the only book on the assembly language I have has examples for nasm-ide assembler. With all that said I am also exploring some of the source codes from old games (e.g. Wolfenstein, Doom) which require knowledge of that stuff. So it's all basically for the sake of knowledge.

Ah, you went there before...

If Frank Kotler does not know what is NASM 1.5a, there is
no chance anybody else know. Why don't you reload the last
NASM version? You must be confusing some NASM IDE version
number and the NASM version number (no relationshisp).
