The syntax could be transformed into NASM syntax but the problem is that
each assembler has its own syntax and
I beleive it is likly that I'm faced to requests to support assembler
'xyz' on platform 'abc' too.
Therefore I decided to support only a standard assembler on a platform.
(MASM is distributed with the Windows SDKs)
