   The NewSphinxCmm is a mixing of SphinxC-- ,HJWasm , fasm , fasmg ,SmallerC , borland c++ 6.0 and alink  in one package.

So SphinxC-- ,HJWasm , fasm   always compile to Coff object file,  borland c 6.0 always compile to OMF object file  , then linked later by alink linker.

fasmg , SmallerC  always compile to asm code that inserted into SphinxC code.

also SmallerC  compiles to masm code.

see my following Examples to got it well.

Hi All,

Here is the first Example that mix SphinxC and HJWasm.

some roles you have to care of.

1- masm block of code must started with term '^^' and end with the same term.
2- masm bolck will extract from sphinxc then compile and later linked with alink.
3- this process will accomplished by MasmPlgIn , you have not use the cpu directive.
4- MasmPlgIn will specify tha path of include directory.
5- take care of function call convention , it may crash your code.


the next masm code was taken from http://www.masmforum.com/board/index.php?topic=14696.105
it determines the cpu of computer.

Hi Emil,

The compiler does not work on Windows XP SP3 :

Quote
c--.exe is not a valid win32 application

Tested on XP 32-bit and 64-bit, the result is the same.

The old version 0.239 from narod.ru works fine on XP :

http://c--sphinx.narod.ru/indexe.htm

NewSphinxCmm is the opensource code of C-- . ported to MSVC2012

VC++ 2012 does not support WinXP.  Any chance to rebuild the project with VC2010 Express?

Hi Vortex,

I am afraid , i have no machine with MSVC2010.

i have an idea , does MSVC2010 linker can link obj file that done by MSVC2012.

also my problem is how to import MSVC2012 project to codeblocks , so i can rebuild it with any another compiler?

Hi TWell,

thanks for the link.

i have changed the 'platform Toolset' option in msvc2012 to be 'Visual Studio 2012 - Windows XP (v110_xp)' then rebuild the entire solution.


please download the  newSphinxCmmXP.7z then copy it's contains to the old one.

hope that will work.

Edited:

i erased newSphinxCmmXP and correct the original one for the sake of confusing.
so reload it again , please let me know if it worked well.

Hi Emil,

I downloaded the new release and it works on Windows XP, thanks.

I am trying to compile a simple GUI example, the output is intended to be a MS COFF object module. Here is the output :

I can compile the same source code with the old compiler from narod.ru  After, the object module is linked with GoLink.

Hi Vortex,

first i will explain the deferent between old c-- and the modified c--.

1- NewSphinxC always produces obj file so there is no need to  #pragma option coff   //coff format.
2- because of using alink as a default linker , there is new directive '#includelib' that tells alink which libs and objs will be linked, there is no need to put the obj name of source code.
Code: [Select]
// this links win32 library & msvcrt library
#includelib  win32.lib MSVCRT.lib
3- when using '#includepath' you just use '$' term then the path so NewSphinxC will insert the correct path automatically for you.
Code: [Select]
// $ will replaced with SphinxC-- main path
#includepath "$\winlib" 

4-there is no need to include windows header as you did , just include windows.h
Code: [Select]
// those feet my needs
#include <windows.h> 
#include <MSVCRT.H-->
5- there is no need to use '#pragma option J0' directive so NewSpinxC allows to determine the entry point with '#Entry' directive. the default is main function
Code: [Select]
// tells linker to start from main function.
#Entry  main

here is you code compiled & worked okay
Code: [Select]
#pragma option w32     //create Windows GUI EXE.
#pragma option w       //enable warning.
#pragma option 3       //386 CPU.

#includelib  win32.lib MSVCRT.lib ole32.lib

#includepath "$\winlib"
#include <windows.h> 

#include "Menu.rc"     //resource file.

                                        break;
                                       
                                    case IDM_EXIT:
                                   
                                        DestroyWindow(hwnd);
                                        break;
                                }
                            }

            default:

                }

I get some copies of the source file after the compilation

the PlugIn System of NewSpinxC works like that , each PlugIn will delver the source code and make it's processing then pass back.
so Macro Plugin will get the original source code the process it and save it as ....$0.c-- , the second PlugIn will get ....$0.c-- then process it then save as ....$1.c--    and so on.
finaly c-- will get ...$n-1.c-- and compile it as original filename.exe

it is useful when debug the output of a certain plugin.

Hi Emil,

Thanks for the reviewed code but yet the compiler is crashing after creating the executable. Any option to disable the plugins? I wish to use other linkers with C--  As I mentioned in my previous message the compiler crashes if I want to display the command line options with c--.exe /? Also, how to get the latest documentation of your C-- release?

No , but i will try to do that

you still can use an other linker just feed the necessary libraries and original filename objet ,also any objs file produced while compiling your code.

Quote

because there is no command line options , just put the source filename

there is no documentation , sorry , later i will write it.

Hi

there is a new directive  '#OnExit'  that allow you use an other linker just like golink.

here is one that i was using with alink.
Code: [Select]
#OnExit "$PATH$ALINK -oPE $FILE$.obj -L $PATH$ win32.lib MSVCRT.lib  -subsys con -entry main -o $OFILE$.exe"

the term '$PATH$' will replace with actual plugin folder path , so put you linker there.
the term '$FILE$' will replace with latest processed file name without extension
the term '$OFILE$' will replace with original file name without extension

edited

here is the ilink , borland linker
Code: [Select]
#OnExit "$PATH$\ilink32 /ap  -Gn  $FILE$.obj cns.OBJ , , , import32.lib cw32.lib , ,   "

Hi Vortex,

I have modified NewSphinxC , so you can now disable the plugins except the Macro & linker which are part of C--.

Code: [Select]
c-- /NOPLGIN  yoursource.c--

the commend line will compile yoursource,c-- without plugin processing, do not use it with #pragma option in your code ,only from a command line.

also the directive '#pragma option obj'  tells NewSphinxC to only compile the source without linking.

also c-- now has a commnd line.

just redownload the new version c-- '250 c b26'

hope that help you.
