$EXTERNAL Myroutine [, myroutine2]




You can place ASM routines in a library file. With the $EXTERNAL directive you tell the compiler which routines must be included in your program.

'In order to let this work you must put the mylib.lib file in the LIB dir
'And compile it to a LBX
'define the used library
'you can also use the original ASM :
'$LIB "mylib.LIB"
'also define the used routines
$external Test
'this is needed so the parameters will be placed correct on the stack
Declare Sub Test(byval X As Byte , Y As Byte)
'reserve some space
Dim Z As Byte
'call our own sub routine
Call Test(1 , Z)
'z will be 2 in the used example
