assembly vim syntax highlighting
The default assembly syntax file didn't work well and searching the web about gas assembly I found nothing about a gas (AT&T) syntax file for vim. Has anyone found this? I can't write my own syntax file.
This may get you started. Is that more like what you're looking for?
Just had a quick search - it looks like there are a few different sorts of assembly syntax highlighting built in. Which one are you using?
Copy-pasted from :help syntax
Currently these syntax files are included: asm GNU assembly (the default) asm68k Motorola 680x0 assembly asmh8300 Hitachi H-8300 version of GNU assembly ia64 Intel Itanium 64 fasm Flat assemlby http://flatassembler.net masm Microsoft assembly (probably works for any 80x86) nasm Netwide assembly tasm Turbo Assembly (with opcodes 80x86 up to Pentium, and MMX) pic PIC assembly (currently for PIC16F84) The most flexible is to add a line in your assembly file containing: :asmsyntax=nasm Replace "nasm" with the name of the real assembly syntax. This line must be one of the first five lines in the file.
This additional syntax script is from vim.org
It looks like your screenshot is using the default asm filetype. Try
and you should get some colour changes as per these screenshots.
From your screenshots above I've made a couple of quick modifications to the fasm vim syntax and called it gasm. It can be found here on pastebin.
Copy and paste that into your personal .vim/syntax or vimfiles/syntax directory and call it gasm.vim Then in your assembly file :set ft=gasm
This vim script relies on comments being of the form % comment with the space included. You can see this (or change it if you wish) on line 116 of the script.
Please note: Don't copy the line numbers.
I started to write a complete GNU as syntax from scratch.
In addition to the basic instructions it will recognize the following extended Intel / AMD instructions:
