;;;; pasm.el
;;;; this is a simple major mode for working with parrot assembler
;;;; (and, to a certain extent, parrot imcc) files.
;;;; first off: this file is 'it works for me' quality, use at your
;;;; own risk
;;;; offerings:
;;;; 1) highlighting for labels, comments and ops which modify program
;;;; flow (if, bsr, jsr, etc.). I have intentionally kept the
;;;; highlighting to a minimum (highlighitng loses its point when you
;;;; highlight _everything_), however if someone wants i'll add in
;;;; different highlighting levels ala cperl-mode.
;;;; 2) simple indentation (but it kills tabs, which i think is a good
;;;; thing so i'm not going to fix it (yes, it'm just justifying my
;;;; laziness (i just realized that this is going to create a *lot* of
;;;; whitespace diffs ... hmmm ...)))
;;;; 3) a simple function for following branches. see the doc string
;;;; for pasm-follow-branch. By default this is bound to "C-c C-j".
;;;; 4) a function for passing the current buffer to and
;;;; passing the output of that to the parrot interpreter and putting
;;;; the output in another window. see the doc string for
;;;; pasm-assemble-and-run-buffer (dont't forget to set PERL5LIB). By
;;;; default this is bound to "C-c C-c".
