GAS assembly lexer doesn't highlight negative values

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

Hi, I spotted a problem that negative values in GAS are not highlighted correctly. For example:

subl $16, %esp

In this case $16 is highlighted like any other value and that's good. However:

subl $-16, %esp

And $-16 isn't highlighted correctly. I made following change (added '-' character to regular expression):

diff -r 96e8b9cb83ef pygments/lexers/

     identifier = r'(?:[a-zA-Z$_]' + char + '*|\.' + char + '+)'
     number = r'(?:0[xX][a-zA-Z0-9]+|\d+)'

And it worked.
