error: Possible causes: recursive EQUs, macro abuse
« on: September 13, 2019, 10:04:15 PM »
Please help me!!
i have been finding it difficult to run this code in sequence but it usually stopes at displaying my name.

Code: [Select]
global _start

_start:

  mov  eax,4              ;sys_write
  mov  ebx,1              ;To stdout
  mov  ecx,urname       ;'Input some data: '
  mov  edx,urname_size
  int  80h                        ;Call kernel

  mov  eax,3                 ;sys_read. Read what user inputs
  mov  ebx,0                 ;From stdin
  mov  ecx,inp_buf                 ;Save user input to buffer.
  int    80h

  push eax

  mov  eax,4
  mov  ebx,1
  mov  ecx,Yname         ;'You entered: '
  mov  edx,Yname_size
  int    80h

  mov  eax,4
  mov  ebx,1
  mov  ecx,inp_buf
  pop  edx
  int  80h

  mov  eax,1
  mov  ebx,0
  int  80h

;next line

mov  eax,4          ;sys_wite
  mov  ebx,1           ;To stdout
  mov  ecx,old           ;'Input some data: '
  mov  edx,old_size
  int  80h                    ;Call kernel

  mov  eax,3            ;sys_read. Read what user inputs
  mov  ebx,0             ;From stdin
  mov  ecx,inp_buf               ;Save user input to buffer.
  int    80h

  push eax

  mov  eax,4
  mov  ebx,1
  mov  ecx,age                ;'You entered: '
  mov  edx,age_size
  int    80h

  mov  eax,4
  mov  ebx,1
  mov  ecx,inp_buf
  pop  edx
  int  80h

  mov  eax,1
  mov  ebx,0
  int  80h

section .bss

inp_buf resb 1000

section .data

urname: db 'What is your name: '
urname_size: equ $-urname

Yname: db 'Your name is: '
Yname_size: equ $-Yname

old: db 'How old are you: '
old_size: equ $-old

age: db 'Your age is: '
age_size: equ $-age

Hi direser.

Welcome to the forum.

You exit the program right after printing your name! Commenting out that section makes it work perfectly for me. Nice job!

Best,
Frank
