Defining Labels with Inline Assembly

Defining Labels with Inline Assembly


I just downloaded a copy of Borland C++ 1.01 from the Borland Museum. Great compiler, but when I use the ASM{} directive to define Assembly code, I get "Error: Undefined label 'label1' in function clear_screen" if I try to define a label!


int clear_screen(void){
        mov ax, 0A000h
        mov es, ax

        mov di, 00h


            mov es:[di], 00h

            inc di

            cmp di, 0FA00h
            jl label1


I've also tried _label1: and just _label1 with no ":". No matter what it completely ignores my label definition line. What is the correct syntax?

Thank you in advance,


RE: Defining Labels with Inline Assembly

OK, I think I found the only solution to this problem:


asm {
It's kind of sad that I have to exit the ASM block completely to define a label, but it seems to work.
