Thanks, NoCforMe. The point is that Deer44 criticises others a lot because they dare to post here snippets in MasmBasic, C/C++ and other languages but never ever has made a contribution to this forum. Check his posts in his profile, it's really ugly.

Sorry I offended anybody. I'll avoid any comments regarding "masmbasic" in the future.
I won't metion cpp or "c++" either.

I'm learning C now, but I'll keep it to myself.

I think you majorly misinterpreted the objections to your postings here. Nobody's suggesting you not[/] post anything referring to other languages. People do that all the time here. The objection (from JJ) was exactly the opposite of that. Maybe you ought to reread what he wrote.

Oh, I think I'll probably be posting a lot of questions regarding C! I don't know squat about it.

By the way, I am a 'he'.
I think that's one of the acceptable pronouns.

I think of C as a just a slightly more compact way of [almost] writing assembler. Some C translates almost 1-to-1 to assembly. You'll see that once you start looking at source code.

And if you use macros (I don't), you can make your MASM almost look like C. (I.e.,without all those JMPs that are the only way to transfer control in MASM.)

I don't mind those JMPs.

Guys,

Lets keep the criticism of other people down, while this IS an assembler forum, many folks here write other languages and sometimes interface their other language with assembler.
