NASM.exe doesn't stay open
« on: April 07, 2006, 08:46:53 PM »
Hi all,

I'm new to NASM and learning assembly. I downloaded nasm-0.98.39-djgpp.zia but when I click on the .exe file it doesn't stay open. Also, the manual says there are 4 .exe files but there are only 2, the above mentioned and ndisasm.exe. Need help.

Thanks

nasm.exe is a command-line application. There are two basic versions - nasm.exe and nasmw.exe. The first is a 32-bit DOS version and the second is compiled as a windows command line version. Likewise for ndisasm.exe and ndisasmw.exe, the disassembler. The DOS and Windows versions are separate downloads.

I should have added in case you don't know - being a command line application means that you have to type the command from a command prompt, as it does not open a window. The manual tells you what options to add after the application name for the type of output file you want.
