;;; Commentary:

;; This mode was written by Eric S. Raymond <>,
;; inspired by an earlier asm-mode by Martin Neitzel.

;; This minor mode is based on text mode.  It defines a private abbrev table
;; that can be used to save abbrevs for assembler mnemonics.  It binds just
;; five keys:
;;	TAB		tab to next tab stop
;;	:		outdent preceding label, tab to tab stop
;;	comment char	place or move comment
;;			asm-comment-char specifies which character this is;
;;			you can use a different character in different
;;			Asm mode buffers.
;;	C-j, C-m	newline and tab to tab stop
;; Code is indented to the first tab stop level.

;; This mode runs two hooks:
;;   1) An asm-mode-set-comment-hook before the part of the initialization
;; depending on asm-comment-char, and
;;   2) an asm-mode-hook at the end of initialization.

(defun asm-mode ()
  "Major mode for editing typical assembler code.
Features a private abbrev table and the following bindings:

\\[asm-colon]\toutdent a preceding label, tab to next tab stop.
\\[tab-to-tab-stop]\ttab to next tab stop.
\\[asm-newline]\tnewline, then tab to next tab stop.
\\[asm-comment]\tsmart placement of assembler comments.

The character used for making comments is set by the variable
`asm-comment-char' (which defaults to `?\\;').

Alternatively, you may set this variable in `asm-mode-set-comment-hook',
which is called near the beginning of mode initialization.

Turning on Asm mode runs the hook `asm-mode-hook' at the end of initialization.
