Should AT&T syntax/Intel syntax/elf/a.out/flat link to independent articles?

I was wondering if each file format should link to their own articles? --Brynet-Inc

I placed AT&T syntax and Intel syntax as sections of the article on assembly. Someone who is technologically savvy could link those sections in there. I think the file formats should link to their own articles, under maybe a Executable File Format category, under a more general File Format category? Just a suggestion. --FMota 16:52, 29 November 2006 (CST)

16/32/64 bits?

To add or not to add a support 16/32/64-bit column? May be useful as nasm does not support it, as well as things like gas that chokes on 32 bit instructions when compiled for a 64 bit x86... Please remove if unwanted --Combuster

I've filled in the Yasm and Gas fields, Nice idea. --Brynet-Inc

Other tools

I like where this article's gone. Let's add more tools. Also, I need to fix my {{ref}} and {{note}} templates. --Jhawthorn 00:23, 1 December 2006 (CST)

The table comparing compilers has some minor issues.

I'm trying out this interesting tool called HLA, for High Level Assembler. Check it out at [1] Should it be under assemblers or compilers. I'm thinking compilers because it relies on a separate assembler, yet it claims to be an assembler with a really advanced macro feature. --Mr.Confuzed 20:24, 3 December 2006 (CST)

It remains an assembler at the basic level, and therefore should be qualified as such - Combuster 03:05, 4 December 2006 (CST)

Visual Studio

Visual Studio does support inline assembly (it isn't gas or nasm however)

It also can output .com files. Telexicon 06:19, 2 December 2006 (CST)

Added the info to the page, please check it -Combuster 07:11, 2 December 2006 (CST)

Compiler separation

Wouldn't it be useful to split compilers by language (possible consequence: rename visual studio to Visual C++)

Watcom compiler

AFAIK, WASM and the OpenWatcom compiler doesn't support x86-64, so there is some incorrect information there. --Rdos 10:17, 17 November 2012 (CST)
