Title: Too big job for me
Post by: minor28 on May 31, 2012, 04:44:57 AM
I am working on a masm language extension for visual studio 10. I got it to work in
experimental instance. It is a C# project (MasmPackage.sin). Coloring is inspired by
Alexandre Mutel's Asmhighlighter.

As a part of this work I must translate the c++ header files to masm inc files. This is a
RadAsm project (MasmTool.rap). The translation process works without errors but assembling
the windows.inc file generates a lot of errors. I have worked quite a while with these
errors. Some are fixed but new arises.

Now I have come to the conclusion that this job is too big for me and because of that I ask
if someone wants to take over the work. In that case, I presume that I can access the
resulting source code.

The projects can be downloaded from http://minor28.divdev.se/index.php?mt (http://minor28.divdev.se/index.php?mt)

Best regards

Hi minor28,

What tool did you use to do the translation from C++ to .inc?

The tool is my RadAsm project. Scanning each line in windows.h and referenced files.

Hi minor28,

You can check Japheth's translator h2incX. Maybe, it can give you an idea.

Hi Vortex,

OK, I read about the Japheth's translator h2incX as you wrote. I see that the restrictions he has stated, I have also taken account of in my tool. Have you looked at my MasmTool code?

I have written code for macros but for the moment it is commented out.

In all, I have given up. At least at the moment.

the downloads do not work with the IE9... probably because of the java script

I'm not very happy about the tampering with my links.

i apologize, Minor - i thought you'd want them to have your files
they were unable to access them due to the PHP code on your site

by the way....

i have used this PHP code by Gary White to force downloads
the last 5 paragraphs show how to alias files, too
(use one url to render it and another to force download)

http://www.apptools.com/phptools/force-download.php (http://www.apptools.com/phptools/force-download.php)

what i like about Gary is, he explains everything so a dummy like me can understand it - lol
very cool stuff   :t

I wanted to know how many downloads. That's why php.

Now I have changed the download page. Not working downloads may be due to a bug in ie.

The only way I can get the zip files with IE 6 is by right clicking the link and selecting Save target as...

I see a lot of energy spent on the downloading of the files. When I put the files on the board to download, my hope was that the energy would be on the assembly code. :biggrin:
