    ASM Compiler

    I'm looking for a good ASM compiler, preferably one like TASM. I can't seem to find a good one that compiles most ASM code. I don't really want a Windows specific compiler, but it should be able to compile and run on Windows. Any links are appreciated, thanks.

    How about MASM32?
    System: Debian Sid and FreeBSD 7.0. Both with GCC 4.3.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I can't imagine why you would expect to.

    >I don't really want a Windows specific compiler, but it should be able to compile and run on Windows.
    Then you're SOL, basically. You can get an assembler that will work on multiple systems, like NASM or GAS, but any code you write still won't be portable.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    NASM will work for you with the restrictions that Prelude has mentioned.

    Thanks, I got NASM but haven't tried it out yet.
