[quote=jcarlock] [QUOTE date="2013.04.01"] Hello! Not sure, because I do not speak English well completely. Before giving my doubts, I want to be sure of this. These converting C code to MASM K-Meleon? For desert, I'm no programmer but it seems very interesting topic [/QUOTE] First, the conversion ends up as a project currently only supported by one individual, myself. Second, the conversion ends up going from the GNU C++ (or GCC, they call it G instead of C because they are GNU http://www.gnu.org/software/software.html) to NASM (another open source, free language, but assembly language ends up a bit harder to understand, thus providing the reasons that the C/G languages came into play, http://www.nasm.us/). NASM seems relatively easy to download and get a hold of but the GCC language requires a little searching for when you get the GNU page above (just search for "GCC" or go here, http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/). I suspect not much help comes into play, as the high-tech guys that work on this try to avoid ASSEMBLY LANGUAGE as much as possible. That's OK, though, I want to work on it to LEARN more about the NASM language and directives. I'm starting out by converting the "About.cpp" and the "About.h" files to "About.nas" and "About.inc" respectively. If you'd like some direct links to the NASM versions I use, feel free to ask. I do not use GNU much at all, and hold no intentions on compiling with GNU GCC at all, everything gets converted and compiled with NASM-X. http://www.asmcommunity.net/projects/nasmx/ http://sourceforge.net/projects/nasmx/ NOTE The developers of NASMX are tired of the SOURCEFORGE.NET problems that started happening in 2011 or earlier and the changes within SOURCEFORGE so they set up their own really nicely laid out site but still depend upon SOURCEFORGE to provide the files for downloading. They supposedly want to move away and out of SOURCEFORGE but I do not see that happening this year, yet. The programmers at NASMX all come from the NASM family and represent a really great bunch of individuals, as I personally know at least two of the original developers. I personally know Randall Hyde as well who at one time asked me to take over a newsgroup (nntp alt.lang.asm (???)). It's been awhile since I looked at the newsgroup stuff because the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT tried to destroy the protocols for some reason, as I started as a co-moderator for the "comp.lang.asm.x86" newsgroup and when Charles Crayne passed away I ended up learning about the nntp protocol (all of which ends up as getting sent and received as SMTP and POP3 protocols and served by a server that waits for approvals from a moderator or co-moderator before posting the messages). It's been a few years, but I now live again in Saint Petersburg, FL and am starting to get back into NASM. I see that Randall Hyde still provides his HLA (High Level Assembly) language and I know Nathan Baker, also, who helps/helped with the "comp.lang.asm.x86" newsgroup for a long time. I shall send some messages to Randall Hyde and Nathan Baker and see if I can get them to help in this project and I imagine some more enthusi_asm_ soon. I suspect that Randall might want to see some help or provide some interest for the conversions into HLA. Cheers!!! I hope to see more enthusi_asm_!!! And remember, the language ends up as NASM, not _Micro_ASM. If anyone wants to help out, feel free to post and provide some support. I moved to Montana a few years ago. I plan on getting married soon, in July or August, when my wife flies to me as I LOST everything I owned in February in my car and I now must start all over again. Anyways, cheers!!! I hope to get more support on this project and currently hope to re-learn the NASM language, which includes getting to know the C language all over again, as my only "TRUE" grips and understandings currently reside with HTML and CSS (I used to run web-servers, mail-servers).[/quote]
