Thread: problem

  1. #1


    i have this code:

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <bios.h>
    void StandardVideoMode(int mode)
    	asm{move ax,mode
    		int 10h
    int main()
    	return 0;
    im trying to get to videomode (im starting to learn some graphics programming)

    and it gives me the following:
    gra.c: In function 'StandardVideoMode':
    gra.c:6: parse error before '{' token
    gra.c:7: invalid suffix on integer constant

    what to do ?

    my compiler is djgpp(2.3 ?)/gcc

  2. #2
    Do you mean 10 hexadecimal? In c++ this is notated not with the "h" but instead with a 0x prefix. So try A as that is the hexadecimal equivalent to 10.

    asm{move ax,mode int 10h}
    Try using parantheses
    asm{move ax,mode int 10h}
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    Try it this way, though it may be compiler specific. I've had more success in using shorts than chars

    unsigned char mode;
    /*  or */
    short mode;
          mov ah,00h   ; set mode function
          mov al,mode ;  your desired mode with char
          mov al,byte ptr mode ; your desired mode with short 
          int 10h
    I doubt that this will work with a 32 bit compiler. You'll need something that creates 16 bit apps for dos.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P
