386 assembler C or C++ source code needed

I have a C++ program that would benefit by having a built in assembler. By which I mean it would take a string (or file) as input and generate machine code op-codes.

I don't need fancy linkers, it would just generate small segments of executable code, it would need to cope with simple labels (forward and backward references)

Ideally C or C++ source code which could be incorporated into my program.

I have searched for source code to no avail. Oh, it must run on Windows (Linux source code not suitable) using MS C++ compiler.

Thanks
Ian

>> by having a built in assembler

Why don't you just run e.g. the GNU assembler 'seamlessly' from your app? This one is also available for Win32 and is OSS, BTW.

Oh, and there is of course NASM that comes with source code: http://nasm.sourceforge.net/

Interestingly I just found the NASM assembler and so far it seems to do what I want. I think I can just bring in the source code modules I need and build them into my application.

I had not thought of the GNU assembler. I will look at it but I don't want to have external exe files if I can help it which I suspect is what you are referring to.

I had just come back here to delete my question, but I see I will have to award you the points now :)
