Macro Assembler (MASM) includes a full set of development tools
editor, compiler, linker, debugger, and browser

WorkBench (PWB) integrated environment, or you can use the tools separately to
develop your programs.
Environment and Tools
describes the following development tools:
The Programmer’s WorkBench (PWB). PWB is a comprehensive tool
for application development. Within its environment is everything you
need to create, build, browse, and debug your programs. Its macro
language gives you control over not only editing but also build
operations and other PWB functions.
debugger. This is a diagnostic tool for
finding errors in your programs. Two versions of CodeView are
described: one for
and one for Microsoft Windows
. Each CodeView version
has specialized commands for its operating environment, as well as
other commands for examining code and data, setting breakpoints, and
controlling your program’s execution.
LINK, the Microsoft Segmented-Executable Linker. The linker
combines object files and libraries into an executable file, either an
application or a dynamic-link library (DLL).
EXEHDR, the Microsoft EXE File Header Utility. EXEHDR displays
and modifies the contents of an executable-file header.
NMAKE, the Microsoft Program Maintenance Utility. NMAKE
simplifies project maintenance. Once you specify which project files
depend on others, you can use NMAKE to automatically execute the
commands that will update your project when any file has changed.
LIB, the Microsoft Library Manager. LIB creates and maintains
standard libraries. With LIB, you can create a library file and add,
delete, and replace modules.
HELPMAKE, the Microsoft Help File Maintenance Utility.
HELPMAKE creates and maintains Help files. You can use
HELPMAKE to create a Help file or to customize the Microsoft Help
BSCMAKE, the Microsoft Browser Database Maintenance Utility, and
SBRPACK, the Microsoft Browse Information Compactor. BSCMAKE
creates browser files for use with the PWB Source Browser. SBRPACK
compresses the files that are used by BSCMAKE.
