Is it possible to add syntax coloring for the AT&T
Assembly standard?

Its used by linux GCC and all of its window pots, like
DJGPP and MinGW.

The one that comes with SciTE accepts only MASM
and NASM syntax, that uses the Intel standard for
assembly.

A shot briefing of the main (but not all) differences are:

- AT&T prefixes all registers with %, like in %eax, %
ebx, etc
- AT&T uses /* and */ for comments, not ;
- it prefixes constants with $, like in $4

- and so on..

I tried to write a variation of asm.properties, but i was
unable to properly configure it to correctly color the
syntax.

Thanks,

    This will require a volunteer to add these variations to the
    lexer. I won't be working on this myself.
