Anyway I think that for procedural languages mangling is absolutely unnecessary and what is does is just a mess. Having unmangled names exported in Dlls is de facto standard on windows platform and almost every compiler is able to generate normal names. I don't care about static libs but for DLLs i ...

May I ask why names are mangled?

Couldn't there be an option to disable mangling?

There is no extra operation with >= I belive because actual compare is done in single instruction: cmp dword ptr [_Ii], eax and I think the execution times of cmp for > and for >= are same. Jumps jl .Lt_0002 and jle .Lt_0002 Exactly the same speed their jump is based on flags filled by cmp

Yes but to have fully fd32 supported images would be kickass, think about it, you could even write driver or something (I've heard such thing was done only in xbasic) really low level. You could call their kernel functions they describe and everything like big c guy.

EDIT:

I think that maintainer of current FBDOS branch had interest in creating at least for testing native FB for freeDOS32 version. He has expressed his ideas in the mailing list. I'm unable to check my mail now, but there were couple of posts about trying to run FB uner fd32 DPMI emulator, don't know wh...

I've written my first parser according to Jack Crenshaw book about simple compilers, there is ASCII version on the net ;). It might be good for you if want to get it how it works. At least it was good reading for me.

Type suffix isnt that bad idea, for example with syntax highlighting it can make code even more readable as you always know type of variable don't you think. Instead of using hungarian notation you can use suffix. Both are same.
