I Write Assembler

  Description

I use assembler almost exclusively, and do not know C (OK not enough to do much), with all high level languages I have studied it is way easier to read write and maintain assembler than any of the high level languages (with the possible exception of old ANSI BASIC). Knowing that there must be others for whom this is so, I would request that some one rewrite the source in assembly, even if this means that the assembler source version is perpetually a couple steps behind the main version).

Yasm's codebase is very large and would be very time consuming to rewrite in assembly.  It would also lose its ability to run on other platforms.

There already exists FASM written in itself, and it supports pretty much everything and the kitchen sink and can run on like 9 or 10 x86 OSes . Of course, it's not 100% NASM or YASM compatible, but still, close enough. See flatassembler.net
