Suggestion for NASM
« on: May 17, 2011, 01:34:38 PM »
Hi guys I am a new NASM user. Thanks to the devs and the webmaster. Thank you for saving the world from as(s). I mean it.

I have a small suggestion but I think it would be very worthwhile to date and timestamp the listings and maybe even checksum the input. It saves mucho time and hassle when trying to compare old listings to code or a memory dump. I don't know if there's date and timestamp stuff in the elf format but it would be nice to print it on the listing if it exists. If not, NASM could at least put out the date and time the assembly was run. Thanks.
If you can't code it in assembly, it can't be coded!

If I understand what that is it's for embedding date/time in the executable which is also essential but not what I was saying. I was suggesting the NASM listing (if selected with -l) should have a date time stamp.
