Syntaxas [-d124] [-L] [-W] [-V] [-J] [-R] [-t directory] [-o objfile]
The assembler assembles the named files, or the standard input if no
file name is specified.
Options-d Specifies number of bytes for offsets that involve forward or
external references and have sizes unspecified in assembly lan‐
guage. The default is -d4.
-J Uses long branches to resolve jumps when byte-displacement
branches are insufficient. This must be used when a compiler-gen‐
erated assembly contains branches of more than 32k bytes.
-L Saves defined labels beginning with L, which are normally dis‐
carded. The compilers generate such temporary labels.
-o Specifies the name of the output file. If this option is omitted,
-R Make initialized data segments read only, by concatenating them to
the text segments. This prevents the need to run editor scripts
on assembly code to make initialized data read only and shared.
-t Specifies a directory other than the default to receive the tempo‐
-V Uses virtual memory rather than a temporary file for immediate
-W Do not complain about errors.
All undefined symbols in the assembly are treated as global.
The output of the assembly is left on the file objfile; if that is
omitted, a.out is used.
