Oh!!! Yes. You make me recalling of this. Sorry, this is old...

Yes, this Demo can *not* work in Debugger mode, as this is for
Applications (in user mode). The reason why it refuses the CLI.

And yes, it work stand alone. Now, this is the very same problem
as with Drivers: You cannot debug Drivers with RosAsm's Debugger.
I think R�mi found a trick for Drivers developments, but you'd
better ask him, as i did not followed up with what he was doing,
and i have no idea how his method could serve in this case. I
suppose that what he did was for Drivers only.

I don't know if a free external Debugger could do. I suppose not,
but it might be worthy to give OllyDb a try.

If it were advertised as such, no problem whatsoever at all.
The problem is, it's called "RosAsm: The ReactOS Assembler".
Check out the web page.

Now I'm sure that if Rene changed it to the "Rene's Open Source
ASseMbler", the issue would be completely gone.

Visit Rene's Web page.
It says ReactOS.
When it changes, the issue goes away.

Something that you, for sure, will never experience, clown,

Maybe when it's changed to "Wine-Asm" we'll see a glass of Chardonnay,

Yes, RosAsm users often act like they are on drugs. Your analysis

You mean, other than the ability to link in library code to make

Unless, of course, you have to stop to write your own "whatever it
does" function that is found in other assembly libraries. Whoops! An

You seem to believe this is unique to RosAsm? Try using Visual Studio

Which begs the question: why did you have to rewrite it in the first
place if using RosAsm makes you so productive? Seems to me that if the
RosAsm method were so productive, you'd have gotten in right the first
time around.

And as long as you call people names around here, you're going to

stand in the way of your stated goal.

Yes, people are exiting the assembly scene every day because of

Dude, get a life!

You're like the proverbial politician ("you can tell he's lying, his

Yes, that is a joke. We're laughing our heads off.
When RosAsm supports static linking, so you can enjoy the productivity
benefits of using static libraries, come back and talk to us about

In one respect, I must admit that this (carefully worded, intentional
or otherwise) statement is not a lie. RosAsm *does* have potential. It
*could* have lots of features added to it so that it could compete
with the "big boys". Alas, for the past ten years that potential has
been unrealized.

> If you dont belive me. Thats just sad.

No, we don't believe you.
Yes, it's sad you keep blathering on with this nonsense about the
productivity of RosAsm. If it were truly so great, why aren't more
people using it?

> You should at least give it a
> _real_ try.

It doesn't even have the most basic features (like static linking)
that most people need. That feature alone is a non-starter for almost
everyone. When they find out it doesn't support static linking, they
move on to a different product. If you really want people to give
RosAsm a "real" try, you need to convince your fearless leader to add
the appropriate feature set to the assembler so people *will* consider
giving it a try.

RosAsm isn't the proper tool, period.

This is 100% evident, clown. Why do you think such guys
work? Yes, clown, for the very same reason as yourself.
