29.1 No Assembly Support
The only tools that are provided with the Intel(R) C Compiler for EFI Byte Code are a C compiler and a linker. No assemblers for EBC are provided. The lack of an EBC assembler is by design, because the EBC instruction set is optimized for a C compiler. If a UEFI Driver is being ported to EBC, all assembly language sources for 32-bit and 64-bit processors must be ported to C language sources.
