     THis program translates a subset of C into asm, currently, it supports looping (for, while), conditions (if), maths (+,*,-,/), boolean operators (&&, ||), arrays(partly) This outputs asm code that should work, the output is currently generic asm code, without conforming to the rules of any specific asm compiler, but that can be easily taken care of. THis program is written in excel Visual basic, because my version of Visual basic was deleted, and i lost my visual basic installation cd. anyway, you can still run it. TO view the source code, press ALT+F11 to enter a editor, much like the normal VB editor (sorry about that...) Sample Code Translation is below (in the "Windows API section" below):

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
