And you continue to demonstrate your command of the English language.
Way to impress everyone Rene!

So does HLA. The module that does this is TASM, MASM, Gas, or FASM :-).

True. They are also assemblers. Both statements are true as assemblers
*are* compilers for an assembly language.

The are compilers for an assembly language, ergo, they are assemblers.
It's as simple as that.

Nice try at a troll. Of course, you've demonstrated in other posts that
you don't even know what a "parser" is, so how you could claim to know
what a "pre-parser" is (even having made up the word yourself) is an
interesting question.

BTW, the correct term is not "encoder" but, rather, "native code
generator." I'm sure you'll continue to wallow in ignorance as you have
in the past when you've been told the correct English terms for what
you're trying to describe, but that's a different issue.
Of course, by your definition, GCC is a "pre-parser". I'm sure your
buddy Richard Stallman (who wrote you and approved the RPL, according
to you) will be surprised to find that he wrote a ... *pre-parser* ...
rather than a compiler. :-)

Written by the man whose product, RosAsm, is full of IF statements,
WHILE statements, ON statements, and other HLL constructs. Remember the
old saying about not throwing stones in a glass house?
