> I'm trying to make a really simple compiler, and i'm getting there, but i have one problem. The program makes a tree of the program, so i can traverse it and generate program code. But i would like to generate the (binary) object code, so it can actually create .EXE files, which can be run under DOS / windows.

There is somewhere on the net a book online called "linkers and loaders".
And for the assembler part you can have a look at the sources of nasm.
