Description : Pure java x86 and x86_64 assembler
This is a pure-java port of asmjit (http://code.google.com/p/asmjit/).
AsmJit is complete x86/x64 JIT-Assembler for C++ language. It supports
32/64-bit x86 processors including all usable extensions (FPU, MMX, 3dNow, SSE,
SSE2, SSE3 and SSE4) through type-safe API that mimics Intel assembler syntax
and eliminates nearly all common mistakes that can be done by developers.
AsmJit contains also high-level code generation classes that can be used as a
portable way to create JIT code that should run on all supported architectures.
High-level classes can handle various function calling-conventions, register
allocation and 32/64-bit mode differences.
AsmJit has been successfully tested by various C++ compilers (including MSVC,
GCC and BorlandC++) under all major operating systems (including Windows, Linux
and MacOS). AsmJit has been also ported to other programming languages
including Java, Delphi and Smalltalk (although these ports are not official
part of AsmJit and was developed outside).
The package is needed by jaffl which is needed by JRuby.
