9.47.3 Assembler Directives for the Z8000

The Z8000 port of as includes additional assembler directives, for compatibility with other Z8000 assemblers. These do not begin with ‘.’ (unlike the ordinary as directives).

segm
.z8001
Generate code for the segmented Z8001.


unsegm
.z8002
Generate code for the unsegmented Z8002.


name
Synonym for .file


global
Synonym for .global


wval
Synonym for .word


lval
Synonym for .long


bval
Synonym for .byte


sval
Assemble a string. sval expects one string literal, delimited by single quotes. It assembles each byte of the string into consecutive addresses. You can use the escape sequence ‘%xx’ (where xx represents a two-digit hexadecimal number) to represent the character whose ascii value is xx. Use this feature to describe single quote and other characters that may not appear in string literals as themselves. For example, the C statement ‘char *a = "he said \"it's 50% off\""; is represented in Z8000 assembly language (shown with the assembler output in hex at the left) as
          68652073    sval    'he said %22it%27s 50%25 off%22%00'

rsect
synonym for .section


block
synonym for .space


even
special case of .align; aligns output to even byte boundary.
