Oh,No way at run_time,At design time you can use {$L 'YourObjFile.OBJ'} to link the obj file into your Delphi Program.

shenqw, how can i start the linked .obj and pass the commandline to the linked.obj when i use {$L 'name.obj'} at design time ?

i have a delphi program (with source) and a asm program (with source) and i like to link this two programs into one executable.

the reason is, i like to write a GUI for the asm prog.
and i cant include the asm file in the delphi program because there are some unsupported asm funtions in the asm tool

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>unsupported asm

There's no such thing. If there's an mnemonic which Delphi doesn't decognize, just use its opcode (by using dw, dd, etc).

brain3000,

actually your question is a bit confusing because you are talking about an object file and command line parameters etc. This makes no sense as an object file is something like an unusable collection of routines which must be linked with other code to do something useful.

What you need to make it work is:

1) compile your asm file(s) into obj file(s), unfortunately D4 and 5 don't include TASM anymore so you have to find another assembler which can produce the correct object files (note: you need the OMF format as produced by TASM or BCB, VC++ creates COFF object files)

2) link your object file(s) by using the already mentioned {$L xxx.obj} directive

3) either use a call to the API GetCommandLine in your assembler code to retireve the command line or use ParamCount and ParamStr from Delphi and pass the results to an assembler routine of your choice (in both cases you need a routine in your assembler code to be called from Delphi, so the second way is probably the better one).

Ciao, Mike
