Hi,

There is a weird issue in my assembly program. When I link the assembly file, an error says "Error A2006: Undefined symbol :FFFFFFFFh"

I did define this as a dd in .data area.
And, I found that whenever I define values greater than 10 (a , b,c,d,e,f in hex) , it gives me this error. How am I suppose to fix it?

Hi icysmarty,

You didb't specify which asm you use.

Did you try the C-like 0xffffffff notation? Or you can try $ffffffff.

Cheers!

Stefan

Assembler needs somehow to distinguish between variable names and numbers.
FFFFFFFFh is valid variable name... And in MASM, TASM or NASM they decided to do this way.

i see...
last quick question, if I do not specify a number by either d(decimal), h(hex), b(binary),
what will the assembly recognize it as?

Like 037AF – 861273 – 0FFFFFFFF + 1111111?

I suspect that it will be an error.
Decimal is: {0-9}*
Hex is : 0{0-9,A-F}*h
So 037AF is illegal number, but maybe "clever" compiler will set it as 037AFh automatically because of A and F...
