TASM NASM Differences

TASM NASM Differences

TASM NASM Differences

Hi all,

i've bought a book about coding in assembler, which shows the use of MASM and TASM. But I use FreeBSD with NASM and I can't run the code from the book on NASM.
Does anyone know, how I can run the example codes, which is written for TASM/MASM, on NASM? Is a converter for [TM]ASM2NASM available?

Thx 4 help.
CU Dieter

RE: TASM NASM Differences

      As much as I know there is nothing like a ASM2NASM
converter. You can read the documentation of NASM to know the differences. Porting is very easy and not as hard as you think, I've done it. All that you need to change are some of the assembler directives and the way addresses are written & your ported program should run with out a hitch.

RE: TASM NASM Differences

    Well another thing is that MASM & TASM are especilly for
DOS so programs written in them can be compiled in NASM after a bit of porting but they won't work in FreeBSD.
