Inline Assembly Procedure Crash When Accessing Arguments

wish help you to fix your issue As it turns out SEGMENT was defaulting to USE16 instead of USE32/FLAT, which was causing it to be assembled in 16-bit mode, despite little explanation in the documentation.
Also as Michael said, the assembly file can be simplified to:
.model flat, C


funcf   PROC
    push    EBP
    mov     EBP,    ESP
    sub     ESP,    4                   ; make space for x (4)

    mov     EAX,    DWORD PTR 8[ebp]    ; move v1 into EAX


    mov     ESP,    EBP
    pop     EBP
funcf   ENDP

Accessing a register without using inline assembly with gcc

Tag : c , By : Grik
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
should help you out I want to read the stack pointer register value without writing inline assembly.The reason I want to do this is because I want to assign the stack pointer register value to an element of an array and I find it cumbersome to access an array using inline assembly. So I would want to do something like that. , There's a shortcut:
register long rsp asm ("rsp");

void foo(void)
    register long rsp asm ("rsp");
    printf("RSP: %lx\n", rsp);

int main()
    register long rsp asm ("rsp");
    printf("RSP: %lx\n", rsp);
    return 0;
 $ gdb ./a.out 
GNU gdb (Gentoo 7.2 p1) 7.2
Reading symbols from /home/user/tmp/a.out...done.
(gdb) break foo
Breakpoint 1 at 0x400538: file t.c, line 7.
(gdb) r
Starting program: /home/user/tmp/a.out 
RSP: 7fffffffdb90

Breakpoint 1, foo () at t.c:7
7       printf("RSP: %lx\n", rsp);
(gdb) info registers
rsp            0x7fffffffdb80   0x7fffffffdb80
(gdb) n
RSP: 7fffffffdb80
8   }

passing arguments between c and inline assembly

To fix this issue I have a question about passing arguments between c and inline assembly , Incase anyone else comes across this I got it working.
void main()
    char name[] = "thisisatest";
        __asm__ ("\
        .intel_syntax noprefix     \n\
        lea, eax, %[name]          \n\
        inc BYTE PTR [eax]          \n\
    :/*no output*/

Accessing address of a string in inline assembly in gcc

this one helps. Here is my solution slightly different than above, FUZxxi for pointing it out. I should say that retrieving assembly helps in a great extent, it can be hard to understand but it gives you the actual problem. I have written enough comments if somebody wants to understand what i'm trying to achieve.
/* code to convert from lower case to upper case */
int convert(char *str)
   __asm__ __volatile__ ( "movl %1,%%ebx;"  // Get the address of str
                "subl $1,%%ebx;"     
        "REPEAT: addl $1,%%ebx;"    
                "movl 0(%%ebx),%%edx"  // Move the contents to edx
                "movzbl %%dl,%%ecx;"   // moving last character to ecx
                "testl %%ecx,%%ecx;"   // compare if it's null
                "je END;"              
                "cmpl $97, %%ecx;"     
                "jb END;"
                "cmpl $122,%%ecx;"
                "ja END;"
                "subb $32,(%%ebx);"  // if its lower case, subtract 32
                "jmp REPEAT;" 
                :           // No output specified
                :"r"  (str) //input
                :"ecx","edx" //clobbers
  printf("converted string =%s\n", str);

How Get arguments value using inline assembly in C without Glibc?

Tag : c , By : Antony Briggs
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
fixed the issue. Will look into that further As specified in the comment, argc and argv are provided on the stack, so you cannot use a regular C function to get them, even with inline assembly, as the compiler will touch the stack pointer to allocate the local variables, setup the stack frame & co.; hence, _start must be written in assembly, as it's done in glibc (x86; x86_64). A small stub can be written to just grab the stuff and forward it to your "real" C entrypoint according to the regular calling convention.
Here a minimal example of a program (both for x86 and x86_64) that reads argc and argv, prints all the values in argv on stdout (separated by newline) and exits using argc as status code; it can be compiled with the usual gcc -nostdlib (and -static to make sure ld.so isn't involved; not that it does any harm here).
#ifdef __x86_64__
        ".global _start\n"
        "   xorl %ebp,%ebp\n"       // mark outermost stack frame
        "   movq 0(%rsp),%rdi\n"    // get argc
        "   lea 8(%rsp),%rsi\n"     // the arguments are pushed just below, so argv = %rbp + 8
        "   call bare_main\n"       // call our bare_main
        "   movq %rax,%rdi\n"       // take the main return code and use it as first argument for...
        "   movl $60,%eax\n"        // ... the exit syscall
        "   syscall\n"
        "   int3\n");               // just in case

        "bare_write:\n"             // write syscall wrapper; the calling convention is pretty much ok as is
        "   movq $1,%rax\n"         // 1 = write syscall on x86_64
        "   syscall\n"
        "   ret\n");
#ifdef __i386__
        ".global _start\n"
        "   xorl %ebp,%ebp\n"       // mark outermost stack frame
        "   movl 0(%esp),%edi\n"    // argc is on the top of the stack
        "   lea 4(%esp),%esi\n"     // as above, but with 4-byte pointers
        "   sub $8,%esp\n"          // the start starts 16-byte aligned, we have to push 2*4 bytes; "waste" 8 bytes
        "   pushl %esi\n"           // to keep it aligned after pushing our arguments
        "   pushl %edi\n"
        "   call bare_main\n"       // call our bare_main
        "   add $8,%esp\n"          // fix the stack after call (actually useless here)
        "   movl %eax,%ebx\n"       // take the main return code and use it as first argument for...
        "   movl $1,%eax\n"         // ... the exit syscall
        "   int $0x80\n"
        "   int3\n");               // just in case

        "bare_write:\n"             // write syscall wrapper; convert the user-mode calling convention to the syscall convention
        "   pushl %ebx\n"           // ebx is callee-preserved
        "   movl 8(%esp),%ebx\n"    // just move stuff from the stack to the correct registers
        "   movl 12(%esp),%ecx\n"
        "   movl 16(%esp),%edx\n"
        "   mov $4,%eax\n"          // 4 = write syscall on i386
        "   int $0x80\n"
        "   popl %ebx\n"            // restore ebx
        "   ret\n");                // notice: the return value is already ok in %eax

int bare_write(int fd, const void *buf, unsigned count);

unsigned my_strlen(const char *ch) {
    const char *ptr;
    for(ptr = ch; *ptr; ++ptr);
    return ptr-ch;

int bare_main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
    for(int i = 0; i < argc; ++i) {
        int len = my_strlen(argv[i]);
        bare_write(1, argv[i], len);
        bare_write(1, "\n", 1);
    return argc;
