The PROC directive used with arguments requires a language specifierin the .MODEL directive in the Microsoft Macro Assembler (MASM)versions 5.1, 5.1a, and 6.0, and also in the Microsoft QuickAssemblerversions 2.01 and 2.51. The language specifier is required because itdetermines which parameter passing convention will be used with thePROC arguments. If you do not specify a language on the PROC line, theerror
A2022: Operand must be type specifier
will be generated by MASM 5.1 and 5.1a, and by QuickAssembler 2.01 and2.51. The error
A2119: language type must be specified
will be generated by MASM 6.0.
More information
To correct the code, specify a language in the .MODEL statement. Tocorrect the following program, replace the statement ".MODEL small"with ".MODEL small, language" where language is either FORTRAN,PASCAL, Basic, or C.
