format does not support 32-bit absolute addresses
« on: February 12, 2018, 01:31:14 PM »
I tried to build on my Mac but I get this error:
Mach-O 64-bit format does not support 32-bit absolute addresses

Code: [Select]
mov       rax, [num1]
section   .data
num1:     dq        100

nasm -f macho64 test.asm

Try "default rel". (I don't know why this works)

Best,

I think OS X uses rip-relative addressing. I just found this after search on the internet.
