fasmg as css preprocsesor
Now that fasmg has support for win,linux and macos... I am wondering how suited is fasmg as css preprocessor?

To generate from this example:

Code:

@macro inline-block(){
    displayinline-block;  
}
.class.other-class{
    @include inline-block();
    $-blue{
        colorblue;
        .dark{
            colordarkblue;
        }
    }
    &.red{
        colorred;
    }
}



Something like this output:

Code:

.class.other-class{
    displayinline-block;
}
.class-blue.other-class-blue{
    colorblue;
}
.class-blue .dark.other-class-blue .dark{
    colordarkblue;
}
.class.red.other-class.red{
    colorred;
}



The first issue I see is the minus "-" character. Then again, I am horrible at fasm macros.

I think fasmg probably wasn't designed with this in mind but I am curious if its a viable posibility.

Some ideas or advices?

Best regards
Enko

This could be handled by MATCH. But the real issue here is that fasmg's source reader strips the ";" characters as comments, so you loose a portion of source text there.

If using modified variant of fasmg is an option to consider, you could tweak fasmg's source so that it would not strip comments. Then the processing you need could be done with "macro ?!".

With such modification in mind I tried to tweak fasmg source so that it would strip comments not upon reading source text from file, but later when preparing such line to be assembled. This change makes it easier to further tweak the sources so that semicolon-started comments would not be stripped at all, and even opens up a possibility of disabling this at the assembly time with some directive. Unfortunately, this also degrades performance a little bit, so I'm not eager to make it mainstream just for a couple of exotic applications.

Here's the diff of the tweak I made:

In the case of semicolon for the source code, I think it might be optional as the newline should finish the line instruction too. I'll refresh my memory on fasm macros and see what I can come up with.

Thank you for the tips!
