Works fine for me (VC++ and GCC). My only question is why the 32 character limit on the symbol names? Why not just tack " DATA" onto the end of the name instead of trying to line up all the "DATA"s in the same column? I don't think that makes an excessive mess of the .def file, and avoids any possible future problems. (Any such problems wouldn't be difficult to find or fix, but why suffer them at all just for the sake of slightly beautifying the .def file?)
