PowerBasic assembler
« on: January 16, 2018, 12:48:30 PM »
I am trying to do the following in power basic using the inline assembler:
create an assembler block

asmdata tof
    dd 0000000
end asmdata

the following instruction fails

mov dl, [ebx+tof]

I tried numerous things including codeptr(tof)
nothing seems to work.
I get Error 427 Integer constant expedted.
a defined constant works, but it does not help me. I need to line up with the asm block and increment using ebx.
Any ideas?

I am not sure what you are doing but try this.


! mov ecx, tof
! mov dl, BYTE PTR [eax+ecx]
