The mach-o patch
« on: January 25, 2005, 03:39:08 AM »
I saw mention of a mach-o patch for nasm in the
mailing list section of this site
is there a way to download it?

Okay... I have attempted to add this to the "contributions" section on the "download" page... but can't get it to "go" at the moment... So:





(hope the "wrap" doesn't screw those up - you can figure it out...)

I think the "-2" version is (one day?) newer. Note that this patch is against an earlier version of Nasm than current. Here's hpa's advice on how to "rescue" a patch...

-------------------------
Also, note that I did run Nindent on the source before the release, so
that any new patches people produce will have the new formatting.  There
are two tags in the tree:

before-reformat-2005-01
   after-reformat-2005-01

... taken immediately before and after the indent.

If you have patches based on the old source, this is how to rescue them:

-> Check out one tree with cvs [blah] co -r before-reformat-2005-01 nasm
-> Check out one tree with cvs [blah] co -r after-reformat-2005-01 nasm
-> Apply your patches to the first tree.
-> COPY any modified files from the first tree to the second tree.
-> Run Nindent on the modified files.
-> Now you can "cvs update -d" in the second tree to bring it forward to
    current time.
---------------------------------

If this is for your private use, it may not be neccessary to go through all this. If you think that "macho" ought to be actually added to Nasm, give us a hand with an "updated" patch, if you're able...

I'm delighted that Michael Weiser's (hope I've remembered that correctly) contribution is useful to someone. I'd be happy to discuss this further - here or on the nasm-devel list or privately, if you have/need anything further on the subject...

Best,
Frank

Guess I screwed up... only the "-2" version of the above links seems to be working... should suffice...

Best,

Hello

As you may have guessed, this thread would come back soon enough with the arrivals of Apple (Darwin/x86) Macintosh Dev transition kits arriving at the doorsteps of developers.  We've  just received ours, and compiled NASM 0.98.39 without a hitch, that said, I soon realised the apple GCC 4.0 only seem to use mach-o, so i will try to run this patch when i have a chance. (i really dont want to have inline AT&T stuff in my projects :).

Idd like to know if anyone has had a chance to look into outmacho.c more recently that im not aware of from google/SF search, that would mean a lot to us.

Thanx a lot NASM is really great.
