General Syntax for an Assembler

Hello


I would like to develop an application that would be able to convert a General Assembly Syntax to another one, so that the incompatibility problems among the assemblers finishes.

This aplication would have features like fordward and backward jumps, structures and more.

There are a lot of assemblers for the intel architecture, but avery one has it's advetages and disadvetages which makes it difficult to choose one.
Like, for example, the Netwide Assembler (NASM) has very powerful macro capabilities but it lacks of an internal way of managing structures, which is annoying when programming for Windows (you can't write a macro which would let you use the same element's names on different estructures without attaching the structure's name to every element).


I would like to know what do you think about this idea, and if already exists a program that does what i'm saying here.

    [color=Blue]FASM has all that you mentioned: structures and all the rest. Except I do not like local variables there. But FASM is awesome![/color]

    FASM seems to be a good assembler, do you know wether the entire windows' headers have already been converted to FASM?

    [color=Blue]FASM is completely ready for Windows programming. Try it from here (link #3 for Windows): http://flatassembler.net/download.php

    Unzip it into folders and check out the EXAMPLES sub-folder. It even has a sample of WIN64 code![/color]
