Hi Russell,

If you really can't find anything powerful enough for your needs you might
like to get a copy of the XCASM meta assembler and define an AVR module for
it. Processor definitions are very high level and easy to do (including
defining the syntax), and it has a wealth of macro and conditional
capabilities built-in. It also support 32 bit IEEE floating point directly
(no need for external conversion utilities) so you can generate complex
floating point and fixed point tables quickly and easily, not to mention
in-line floating point literals (immediate constants). It also lets you
control placement of code and data within the assembly phase (normally done
by the linker by which time the assembler has lost control) so final
placement can be used to determine  the code generated by macros and
conditional assembly statements. XCASM is available from
