I'd like to have some sentences defined in data referenced by a table for faster acces... Erm... Let's see:

Text1 db "hello",0
Text2 db "wassup",0
Text3 db "welcome",0

TextTable dd <insert here addr/offset of Text1>,
dd <insert here addr/offset of Text2>,

So I can just use a variable and multiply it by 4 to get the offset instead of having like a huge table of IF's...

Anyone knows how to do this?

Yup is As Simple as that :

Text1 db "hello",0
Text2 db "wassup",0
Text3 db "welcome",0

TextTable dd offset Text1
dd offset Text2
dd offset Text3

A note:
offsets will not be the same on all OS/boxes just do not save the on file and reload later...ok?

(This thread) shows a more compact way using a macro - easier to edit, IMO.

Alright, I see...

but what about that Offsets who aren't the same on all OS/boxes mentionned by Bogdan ?

Doesn't that imply that I should compute the Offsets at Runtime just to make it compatible for every system?

Relocation information stored in the PE file does that for you.

heya BitRake,

I used Bogdan's suggestion in .data and it seems to work fine,
I tested it on WinME and 98SE...

Well, I use it as I couldn't figure out how your macro works... I just pasted that thing inside my macros file and called it from .data and then the error messages flood began...

Anyway... thanks a lot both of you.. :)
