I checked quickly but it does not seem to support FreeBSB?
You might try asking on the FASM board about plans for FreeBSD. I dimly
recall some discussions about FreeBSD.
Besides running fasm under Linux Emulation, it (fasm) does have a libc
port, should should effectively run under *any* OS that has a generic
libc and has a compatible linker (eg supports ELF). However IIRC, most
people just run it under Linux Emulation for ease...
Of course, it certianly runs under BSD if you have the Linux emulation
enabled. And I'm *pretty* sure the object code you write can run
natively under BSD (without emulation), though I'm not 100% sure about
this (there might be *something* in the ELF file that tells FreeBSD it
needs the Linux emulator, even if the object code itself makes no Linux
You can certainly use fasm to generate *BSD native code, you just need
to use the 'brandelf' utility to mark the binary as Linux or *BSD.
(IIRC fasm by default marks them as Linux).
on this. Can someone clarify this? Looks like FASM support a lot
more than NASM. I believe NASM still does not support
I recall that *someone* had a 64-bit version of NASM. But it wasn't
folded into the main release and I don't know if it's publically
I too have heard of a 64bit NASM version, but was never released to the
However my vote goes for FASM... due to it's active maintenance, active
user community, excellent macro support and the ability to produce
