After retrying the latest Yasm, we didn't found it supported COMDAT section for Windows like what generated by declspec(selectany) by Visual Studio. Please support this feature because it is a solution for some C++ features.

Any suggestions as to the assembler syntax for this?  Also, an example object/source file would be helpful.  Thanks!

Microsoft COMDAT specification can be found here:

segment .text comdat=

If yasm doesn't support multiple segments with the same name (COFF does) and combines them automatically, we have the option to create segments with a sub name, separated by $ e.g. .text$one and .text$two The MS linker combines such segments later to .text [all must have the same RWX access or multiple segments according to RWX are created].
