Assembler is not FreePascal specific.

But before you rewrite that Assembler into x86_64 compatible Intel assembler, you better rewrite it into native (Object)Pascal and get rid of the assembler code at all. It's a lot easier to write and to maintain. Plus you also get rid of platform specific code and most likely even gain performance, since the old code probably doesn't utilize all the current extensions like SSE(2, 3, 4, ...) and other things the compiler MIGHT do better.

Best Regards,
