VisualMASM Source on Github

VisualMASM_1_0-MainI decided to release the source code of VisualMASM on Github. VisualMASM is an IDE for Microsoft Macro Assembler (MASM) and makes it a little easier to create Windows and MS-DOS applications in x86 assembly.

The move to release the source code allows me to share the code base for more feedback and also keep the project going with potential project contributors. The source code that I will be adding to Github is not the current code base but a new version of VisualMASM 2.0. I want to make some big changes to VisualMASM and I figured this is a good way to also share the source code at the same time. You can follow along the changes of VisualMASM as I will build it out more over time and when time permits at the Github repository here.

I’m a confirmed speaker at the appsworld North America 2015 at Moscone Center West, May 12-13 in San Francisco, CA.  Discover the future of multi-platform apps. See all confirmed speakers. This sure will be an exciting event. I’m still working on my presentation that will include Redis, Amazon AWS, C#, and more. I will see you there.

Hash Generator Tool

There have been many times where I needed to generate hashes either from strings or from files. I usually use one of my code snippets depending what programming language I’m currently using. But, this time, I needed to generate hashes that do not change and need these hashes as constants. I actually needed these hashes in my Visual MASM IDE that I’m working on. So, I finally created a small tool called Hash Generator that can create MD5 hashes from either a string or from any file on your system. I may extend this tool to create SHA1 and other hashes but for now, it does the job for me and maybe you will find it useful, too. Let me know. 

Download it here. It’s about 2.5 MB in size and runs on Windows XP and up. It’s one exe file, no setup or any other files required. Just run the HashGenerator.exe file.
