Hi maplesirop,

would this work?

probably not, because you've the same label (warn) two times in your source.

Hi maplesirop,

that's not so clear. Where is the label stop? What would you like to do? Do you need only the if-tree or the if-else-trees? In any case, that ressource could be of interst for you: http://www.drpaulcarter.com/pcasm/. I hope that helps.

Hi maplesirop,

that looks like a case select:

Code: [Select]
  case 0:
    x++
  case 1:
    x++
  case 2:
    x=0

Is that your goal?

{
if (x=2)
{
x=0;
}
else
{
if(x=0)
{
x++;
}
}
}


can be translated to.

Code: [Select]
cmp ecx,1
jne elselabel1
inc ecx
jmp endiflabel1
elselabel1:
  cmp ecx, 2
jne elselabel2
mov ecx,2
jmp endiflabel2
elselabel2:
cmp ecx, 0
jne endiflabel3     ;;jump to endif directly
inc ecx
endiflabel3:
endiflabel2:
endiflabel1:

I would suggest to follow a label naming convention like this when you code a nested if-else constructs.

Try it and let us know.
