Try to eliminate any sort of pre-conceived ideas that you may have from
using other systems. It might be a subtle distinction but the specification
is not describing any sort of assembly language - it is describing the
behaviour and format of the 32-bit binary codes that are emitted by the code
generator. The compiler does not generate assembler. Project Oberon does not
use any assembly language - all the code is Oberon.
