'emit' syntax. MSVC 4.1

Posted on 1998-09-25

I seem to remember there being an 'emit' command that could be used to get past the limitation of '_asm' which cannot do 'db' commands.

I want to create in-line assembler where I specify the hex values for the op-codes. Something like:-

emit {
  0x72
  0x01
}

Can anyone tell me the exact syntax?

The command is _emit and it can only define one hex value each time, to do what you want you will need:

__asm {
  _emit 0x72
  _emit 0x01
}

etc...

For more details you can check the doc under _emit

Thanks for the (very) prompt reply. The reason I asked the question was that there appears to be no on-line help for _emit.

I found the help in the last delivery of MSDN (July 1998 I think) although it is up-to-date for VC 6.0 the _emit syntax did not change.
