Since I would like to interface with C, you would get as demonstrated in

Seems to work for now though.
Maybe you just don't reference the respective symbols from
C source? But even once you do, you could

#define shl <<

guarded by some #if to hide it when translating .S files.

Sounds to me, it would be a better plan to make sure that the assembler
accepts it '<<' both with and without '.altmacro' :)
How would you want to deal with <<> (i.e. a literal '<', without
the quotes) or some such?

Well, if you ask me, 'shl' is not supposed to be built-in operator in C, perhaps in other languages like Pascal. Personally I would make sure 'shl' is replaced by '<<' in the assembler, and make sure that it would also compile assembly code with '.altmacro' enabled.
