therefore, I do the following:
tlink abc.obj 123.obj
123 calls other standard C routines and
there is no links to the library functions.
If I have to do a lengthy typing of all the libraries' names on the command line (e.g. tlink 1.obj 2.obj ..... xxx.lib)
It would be tedious and error-prone. How can I link all the libraries without typing the long DOS command?

I lost one line of the above question?

The first line should say
'I got an assembly program which calls the C routine'

Sorry if you are confused.

For your sanity I would suggest a different approach.  Write an "empty" C++ program whose main() calls your assembly procedure and then that calls back to the C when needed.  This will proably make linking easier, but the real reason I suggest that is that if your program calls C++ code, then the program needs (potentialy) to do some initialization.  The C++ run-time libary needs to be initialized.  If not some of its procedures will fail (you may or may not be using these, but why take the chance.)  Also if your C++ procedure has any static variables or accesses global variables, these need to be initialized.  You can potentially do these initializations from assembly, but it is a lot easier to let C++ do it for you.

Does that sound like a better approach?

By the way.  If you want to go with your original approach.  The easiest way is to use a batch file.  But the more typical way is to use a make file.
