A guy named Simon Tatham has written a 386 assembler that supports most
object file formats, including elf and obj (and maybe the version of COFF
used by gcc). EXE file formats are fairly easy to find info on, except
I still haven't seen info on the windows NE format on the net. Someone
sent me one somewhere though...

Anyway a good place to ask about such low-level MSDOS issues is on
comp.lang.asm.x86, they deal with this stuff all the time and know
various URLs.
