Window preferences -- Can't insert ASM templates -- two approaches attempted

Trying to set up the following template for an assembly code stub


     .section program;

    .global ${ASMfunctionName};


//  TODO Modify next line to show how to call from C++

//  extern C void ${cursor} ${ASMfunctionName) { ${cursor} ${inPar1Type} ${inPar1Name}

//                                      $${inPar1Name} passed in R0

#define ${inPar1Name}_R0 R0



// TODO -- Warning message expected if stub less that 4 instructions

// TODO -- Insert code

${ASMfunctionName}.END:    RTS;


When saved as ASM_LEAF_STUB_VOID_PASS_INT -- you can only insert if the file extension is .c or .cpp and not .asm


The available contexts are C / C++,  Comment and Doc comment no assembly


Attempt workaround -- set context to Comment

Generate .c file then type


// ASM_ cntrl-space -- inserts

// /*  Author: smithmr 2013-08-17


*   ${ASMfunctioName}

*/  etc --


the // /* problem can be fixed by changing the template


Try same approach inside file with extension .asm

Type /*  --  Interesting -- inside a .asm file -- the editor will not let you type /* -- although you can insert  /* comment */ via cut-and paste


// ASM cntrl_space does not work to insert a template inside .asm file

IGNORE the /* insertion problem -- That appears to be my API that is blocking the insertion of /* as the problem disappears when I remove the .jar file for Eclipse / dropins in CCES directory
