Let's assume you have a void function which takes no parameters, which prints "Hello, world" in C tradition. The function is, however, written in assmembler. Let's call the function Hello().

Here's a possible TASM/MASM source.

hello.asm:
--------8<--------
.MODEL small,C
.DATA
    message DB "Hello, world$"
.CODE
PUBLIC Hello
Hello PROC NEAR
    MOV AH,9  
    MOV DX,OFFSET message
    INT 21h
    RET
Hello ENDP
END
--------8<--------

The memory model matches the memory model used in the C/C++ compilation. The .MODEL is supplied the C specifier to prefix public symbols with a leading underscore just like C does. That way the Hello PROC is seen by the linker as _Hello. .CODE and .DATA names segments in the same way that they are named by C programs.

In your C++ module you should prototype the Hello function with extern "C" to prevent C++ name-mangling.

main.cpp:
--------8<--------
extern "C" void Hello(void);

int main()
{
        Hello();
        return 0;
}
--------8<--------

You can use tcc to compile main.cpp and ink it with the start-up code, libraries and hello.obj thus:

        tcc main.cpp hello.obj

Alternatively, you can add hello.obj to the link in the IDE.
