Very large ASM file - stalls nasm 2.11.02 and later
« on: January 09, 2023, 10:05:04 AM »
I have a very large ASM file, about 71 megs - 2.2 million lines. I've found NASM 2.11.02 and later stall with this file, It just sits there forever. NASM 2.11.01 will work with it though. Any idea how I can debug what is happening with NASM 2.11.02 and later? RunYourPool

Why do you need such huge file? You can split your code in multiple objects and link them later.

How on earth to you find and fix the inevitable errors in a source file that large?

That's HUGE Is that the ASM source code for the Windows OS? Did you run a disassembler on Windows, and are now trying to reverse engineer it at the assembly code level?
