NASM and ARM64 MacOS (or ARM64 Windows)
« on: March 28, 2023, 09:05:55 PM »
so are there any plans to mod NASM and make it also assemble ARM64 MacOS assembly sources coz all new MacOS from the latest or last x86 MacOS looks like solid ARM64 all the way..

or ARM64 for native ARM64 Windows just in case Microsoft goes with the meme??

I think the link you provide is for x86. I don't think Nasm will touch  ARM.

Best,
Frank

Correc, I don't have an Mac ARM machine to test it on , using ARM instructions that is.

What I understand from here is that when you source a language for assembly you get more applications in the multi-platform fields however you can confirm that NASM is based on x86 that is in fact different from Apple's ARM. Unless you have another active research reference I would suggest you try the NASM-X pages for more on the platform resources or if you really like to make a new reference for such a build.

Cheers!

well, they call that cross platform development. :D

like visual studio 2010 full versions can create Itanium executable files under Windows 7 x64 bit intended for the Windows Itanium OSes..
