210115.1 H. Peter Anvin Requesting a DW_lang_ code for the Netwide Assembler (NASM) Enhancement Open Michael Eager


Section 7.12, pg 230

I would like to request the assignment of a DW_LANG_ constant for the 
Netwide Assembler (NASM). Currently we are using 0x8001, DW_LANG_lo_user+1,
which is documented in most tools as "DW_LANG_Mips_Assember". This is clearly
bogus, and fails to distinguish NASM from other kinds of assemblers.

Rather than "squatting" on a user code, having one officially assigned is 
always preferable.

The Netwide Assembler can be found at https://www.nasm.us/, and is widely used.

Many thanks.
