Hi Vortex,

Very nice additions :)
This can be eventually added to the PellesC distro ?
It can be interesting to have several ways of making Executables :)

BTW, do you have the equivalent tiny CRTs for a DLL and a Static LIB please ?

Thanks again for this wonderful job !

Hi friends,

Here is the latest release of my C startup code very easy to use, now this time the sample projects both GUI and console are supported with ppj files. The startup codes are assembler with Masm.

Hi Gerome,

Thanks for your kind words. The linker extracts and links only the necessary member functions from static libraries, these ones doesn't  require any startup code.

I will post an example for DLLs.
Code it... That's all...

Hi Gerome,

The tricks to create small DLLs are again avoiding using static C run-time libraries, plus setting the entry point of the DLL to:
Code: [Select]

DllMain@12


The project I posted is an example of an autotyper. The application launches notepad.exe and characters of a message starts to appear one by one on the notepad! :)
The autotyping function is called from a DLL sized only 3072 bytes.
Code it... That's all...

Hi friends,

Here is another C run-time startup module coded with GoAsm
Code it... That's all...

Here is a new version of the library coded with POASM
Code it... That's all...

vortex, the console startup code didn't check for 'tab'..  it failed to read correct argv[] when running the program with batch file that exist tab as commandline separator.

i make fixup like this:

Code: [Select]

; POASM
.586
.model flat,c
option casemap:none

WINBASEAPI_GetCommandLineA typedef proto stdcall
externdef stdcall _imp__GetCommandLineA@0: ptr WINBASEAPI_GetCommandLineA
GetCommandLine equ <_imp__GetCommandLineA@0>

WINBASEAPI_ExitProcess typedef proto stdcall :DWORD
externdef stdcall _imp__ExitProcess@4: ptr WINBASEAPI_ExitProcess
ExitProcess equ <_imp__ExitProcess@4>

main proto c :DWORD,:VARARG

.data?
_p__args db 144 dup(?) ; 32 for argv[x8], 128 for buffer

.code

_setargv proc uses esi edi
invoke GetCommandLine
mov esi,eax
mov edx,offset _p__args
push edx
lea edi,[edx+32]
xor ecx,ecx
mov ah,32
@@:
lodsb
test al,al
jz @5
cmp al,9
jz @b
cmp al,ah
jz @b
@0:
mov [edx],edi
add edx,4
inc ecx
jmp @2

This version checks the TAB character.

New version of the tiny C run-time startup library ( Wcrt0_7.zip ) :

The NULL terminator character of the last command-line argument was not copied to the destination buffer by the module crt0cons. This bug is fixed now.

ParseCmdLineParam.zip : Command-line parser for Jwasm \ Masm \ Poasm console applications
Code it... That's all...

Thanks Vortex.

Here is similar code converted to C :
Code: [Select]
//#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN
//#include <windows.h>

#ifndef _WINDOWS_H
void _stdcall ExitProcess(unsigned int);
char __stdcall *GetCommandLineA(void);
#define GetCommandLine GetCommandLineA
int __stdcall lstrlenA(char *);
#define lstrlen lstrlenA
int __cdecl wsprintfA(char *, char *, ...);
#define wsprintf wsprintfA
#define DWORD unsigned long
int __stdcall WriteFile(void *, char *, DWORD, DWORD*, void*);
void * __stdcall GetStdHandle(DWORD);
#define STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE -11
#endif

#pragma comment(lib, "kernel32")
#pragma comment(lib, "user32")

char szCmdLine[1024];

int ParseCmdLine(char *pCmdLine)
{
char *pPos, *pP2, cSp, cTab;
int iArgs;

pPos = GetCommandLine();
pP2 = pCmdLine;
cSp = 32;
cTab = 9;
iArgs = 0;
do { // scan commandline
if (*pPos == ' ' || *pPos == '\t') // strip whitespaces off
continue;
iArgs++;
do { // loop cmdline
if (!*pPos) {
*pP2 = *pPos; // store 0 too
break;
}
if (*pPos == cSp || *pPos == cTab) { // if not quoted it is separator
break; // end of parameter
}
if (*pPos == '"') { // quote ?
cSp ^= 32;
cTab ^= 9;
continue;
}
*pP2++ = *pPos; // store char
} while (*pPos++);
*pP2++ = 0;
} while (*pPos++);
return iArgs;
}

int __cdecl mainCRTStartup(void)
{
int nLen, nIdx, nCnt;
DWORD dwWrite;
char *pPos, szTmp[1024];

nCnt = ParseCmdLine(szCmdLine);
pPos = szCmdLine;
nIdx = 0;
do {
nLen = wsprintf(szTmp, "par %d = %s\n", nIdx++, pPos);
WriteFile(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), szTmp, nLen, &dwWrite, 0);
pPos += lstrlen(pPos) + 1;
} while(--nCnt);

ExitProcess(0);
return 0;
}
