I've been using the attached file included in my source code but the assembler won't recognize the call to the kernel macro from within the sys_write macro. Also if I add closing braces at the bottom to the match statements at the top (Intended to work like the #ifndef #define #endif sequence in a C program), I get problems claiming that the } is an illegal instruction. Is this a difference between the slightly older manual and the assembler or just something I've missed?

you have to "escape" all preprocessor symbols inside inner matches, including brackets:

Code:
match a, b {

  match c,d \{
  \}

}

if I stick the backward slash in front of each of the inner brackets the original source file claims the macros used don't exist

How do I get the opposite
