Anybody thinking about writing 64-bit assembler for the AMD64 chips? These chips are an extended architecture of the Intel 32-bit architecture. So 32-bit ASM should be fairly portable.

There already are. IIRC, NASM did it first, then GAS, and then MASM.

HI Thanks for replying.

Do you have any links on the web to this ASM/64-bit activity? I've been looking...

Not exactly nasm, pheraphs a rewrite (yasm), http://www.tortall.net/projects/yasm/

There exist a nasm64 somewhere, but I think is not already complete... ;)

Have a nice day or night.
