This is ebuild for FASM assembler. From flatassembler.net: "The flat assembler
is a fast and efficient self-assembling 80x86 assembler for DOS, Windows and
Linux operating systems. Currently it supports all 8086-80486/Pentium
instructions with MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3 and 3DNow! extensions and x86-64 (both
AMD64 and EM64T) instructions, can produce output in binary, MZ, PE, COFF or ELF
format. It includes the powerful but easy to use macroinstruction support and
does multiple passes to optimize the instruction codes for size. The flat
assembler is self-compilable and the full source code is included."
1) It is binary package, because fasm ir written into fasm, so you are not able
to compile (assemble) it if fasm is not installed. And besides, there is no need
for recompiling (reassembling), as the resulting binary will always be the same.
2) Installed are fasm binary and documentation. Source code and examples are not
I think it should belong to dev-lang category (at least nasm [Netwide Assembler]
is there). It is for x86 and amd64 architectures.
