            Bug ID: 3392749
           Summary: macro do not recognize the function keyword
           Product: NASM
           Version: 2.15.xx
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: OPEN
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium

Dear my friend,

I have made a shared library with more than 100 functions made with nasm.
When i tried to use this macro to declare all of my functions as external
function :

%macro cglobal 1
    global %1:function

I get the following message : "error: cannot use relocatable expression 
as symbol size".

But when i use (F)unction with a capital F it works and i can link my
application with the whole functionnalities of my shared library.

%macro cglobal 1
    global %1:Function

Is that normal ?

This library works on Debian and Mac OS 64 Bit
I use the latest relase of nasm.

This lib works on static mode and now on shared mode but i'm suprised to use
the capital F with the function word.

Best regards.
