Suggestion to improve Nasm
« on: December 11, 2004, 10:47:11 PM »

There is one "feature" of Nasm that IMHO should be updated.

When you use dq to declare a value, it only supports floating point.

This should be fixed - dq should be available for integer declarations as well.

If I want to declare the value 123456789ABCDEF0h, it seems I have to split it up into 2 dd declarations.

This is silly as some MMX commands use the 64 bit int data type, eg PADDQ. Also SSE2 supports packed quad word integers.

If you could add this improvement it would be greatly appreciated.
