0a, 5a, 6a, 8a, 9a, ka, qa, va - assemblers
SYNOPSIS8a [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
These programs assemble the named files into object files for the cor‐
responding architectures; see 8c(1) for the correspondence between an
architecture and the character (6, 8, etc.) that specifies it. The
assemblers handle the most common C preprocessor directives and the
associated command-line options -D and -I. Other options are:
-o obj Place output in file obj (allowed only if there is just one
input file). Default is to take the last element of the input
path name, strip any trailing .s, and append .O, where O is
first letter of the assembler's name.
The directory /sys/include is searched for include files after machine-
dependent files in /$objtype/include.

tures are supported on all systems, some have been retired and some are
