The FWORD data type, allocates & optionally initializes 6 bytes for each initializer, can be used as a type specifier anywhere a type is legal.

I was just browsing through the MSDN assembly reference and came across this:

FWORD. Allocates and optionally initializes 6 bytes of storage for each initializer. Also can be used as a type specifier anywhere a type is legal.


I honestly never had heard of FWORD, but I couldn't help but laugh at it's name. I'm quite surprised I've never heard of it.

You are not alone.. :) I just tried it (fwTest FWORD 0) and it worked. Seems to be quite useless IMO, however.

Hey Savage! ;)

You teasing me over my Falling in love post? Ha ha.

I warned you, I'm old now which means I have Arthritis in my middle fingers. :D

Anyway Kido, check your mailbox. I have to finish that service call this morning and will check back this evening. ;)

fword is basiclly used in the multimodule, especially in linking with higher level programming, such as Pascal :tup . Hence it gives this correspondence:
Integer - WORD
Real - FWORD
Single - DWORD
Pointer - DWORD
:coder
Hope I helped a bit regarding your comment:
