I can see where the > code might be unwieldy without this though. Anyone else have opinions? IMHO .S support is worthwhile just to be able to use constant definitions in assembly. For example, __unmapself: mov r7,#SYS_munmap svc 0 mov r7,#SYS_exit svc 0 Is a clearer than: __unmapself: mov r7,#91 svc 0 mov r7,#1 svc 0 Especially when approaching the source for the first time.
