<> Literal-Text Operator MASM Operator
Treats text as a single element, whether or not it consists of white
space, commas, spaces, or other separators.
Notes: This operator is used with macros and repeat blocks to
insure that values in a macro call are treated as a
This operator can also be used to make special
characters, such as the semicolon, act as literal
characters, rather than have special meaning. For
example, a semicolon by itself signals a comment,
whereas <;> signals the semicolon character itself.
MASM strips one layer of angle brackets every time a
parameter is passed to a macro. For macros that are
nested, care must be taken to insure that enough layers
of angle brackets are supplied.
