Well, You have the same problem I do.... to get an OBJ out
of an ASM, use either TASM or MASM as follows: MASM
                                TASM asmprog.asm

The subroutine must be declared in your basic program like:

DECLARE SUB subname(var1%,var2%,etc.) you know what I mean...

Then compile the basic program using BC.EXE and apropriate parameters.

Then!!!! you link it like this.....: LINK /o basprog.obj+asmprog.obj

the /o is for stand alone programs I think. Well, that's as
far as I can help you, hope I was of service. till later
