Here's a little extended version of the Lucida Console font... It has some characters replaced with som DOS-characters to show the Fasm Manual as good as possible... Please test it!

Sorry my english!
Regards... Take care!

FASM rocks!!!

Looks superb. Now if I just new what tap stops to use, I'd be set.

Isn't 8 spaced per tab an assumed standard? (But I prefer to use the tab char (9h) over spaces, it takes less space (one char against 8), Is it possible to make Fasw to use the space char instead of replacing it with paces?)

4 spaces is standard and using 9h is bad because the width is different in various fixed-width fonts.

I have used 4 spaces in the past, but recently have switched to 8 spaces. I like to put comments inline for blocks of code - rather than putting comments after the code. This way there can be rather lengthy comments and I don't have to worry about exceeding the line limit of the window or scrolling to read the comments. Individual line comments become rare.

I prefer 3 spaces and don't believe that 0x9 should be in a file. The text editor in use can apply its own tab spacing.

When I mentioned tab stops, I was refering to actual column positions, not the width of the tab character.

I've tried different tab widths and tab stops, but I could not properly format the tables in FASM.DOC

In HLL's I use 3 spaces too, while in ASM I use 32 spaces (long labels), then 16 (for instructions), then again 32 (for operands), and after that the comments, of course.


MOV P32 [ESP],.returnaddress
JMP P32 [.systemstartaddress] ; Comment
.returnaddress: MOV ESP,P32 [.oldesp]

; -- Sometimes I also use full-line comments
NOP

Large screen, eh? :)

8 spaces for tab was an assumed standard, it's used by BIOS/DOS functions and the most of standard editors interprete tabs this way (EDIT/Notepad/etc.), as a DOS-guy ;) I'm following this standard.
If you don't want FASMW to convert tabs into spaces on saving, just turn off the "Optimal fill" option.

Ok, thanks. Btw, I think there should be a little tool tip (in the status bar) for the options in FASMW.

Well SOaB! I guess the combination of 8 Spaces for a Tab AND the new font worked. :confused:

Oh well, not like I spent an hour on it.



POW, if you're still in font h4xer mode, I could go for the rest of the line characters,
Thanks
