       as_pa: as - assembler for PA-RISC systems


       This  manpage  describes on PA-RISC systems.  For on Integrity systems,
       see as_ia(1).

       The command assembles source text from files or standard input and pro‐
       duces  a	 relocatable  object  file  suitable for the link editor, (see

       Source text is read from standard input only if	no  file  argument  is
       given.	Standard  input	 cannot	 be a device file, such as a terminal.
       The option and file arguments can be intermingled on the command	 line.
       Every  specified	 option	 applies  to every specified file, or standard
       input.  The source files	 are  concatenated  to	form  a	 single	 input

       If  the	option	is not specified, the suffix (if any) is stripped from
       the end of the last source file name and is appended  to	 the  name  to
       form the name of the default object code output file.

       output  is  not optimized.  creates a relocatable object file that must
       be processed by before it can be successfully executed (see ld(1)).

       The compiler normally  runs  the	 C  preprocessor  (see	cpp(1)),  then
       invokes to assemble the files together with and subsequently invokes

   Options and Operands
       recognizes the following options and operands:

	      file	     A text file containing assembler source code.

	      Permit an unlimited number of errors to be tolerated
			     before  the  assembly  process  is abandoned.  By
			     default, one hundred errors  are  allowed	before
			     the assembler aborts.

	      Set the default value for the
			     directive	to The normal default value for a that
			     omits the or parameter is

	      Write a listing of the program to standard output	 after	assem‐
			     This  listing  shows  the offsets of instructions
			     and actual values for fields.

	      Name the output object file
			     objfile instead of using the  default  suffix  on
			     the file name of the last file specified.

	      Set the default privilege level for an
			     directive	to number.  By default, all user-level
			     procedures are exported at privilege level 3.

	      Set the output file suffix to
			     instead of The file will have a  format  suitable
			     for conversion to the ROM burning programs.

	      Do not create unwind descriptors.
			     To	 avoid	the  need  for	the directive, the and
			     directives must not have been used.

	      Write cross-reference data to the file named

	      Print the version number of the assembler	 program  to  standard
			     before assembling the source text.

	      Either suppress all warning messages if no
			     number  is	 supplied or suppress just the warning
			     number provided.  Multiple options can be used to
			     suppress additional warning messages.

	      Assemble code for the
			     architecture  specified.	The use of this option
			     is discouraged.  The preferred method for select‐
			     ing  the architecture is to have a directive con‐
			     tained within the assembly source file.

			     The assembler uses the  following	precedence  to
			     determine the target architecture.

				  1. Use  the  directive  within  the assembly
				     source file.
				  2. Use the command-line specification.
				  3. Use the default architecture of

	      Both of these  options  are  used	 in  the  building  of	shared
			     For  a  more  complete discussion regarding these
			     options, see the manual

   International Code Set Support
       Single- and multibyte character code sets are supported.

       When syntactic or semantic errors occur, a  single-line	diagnostic  is
       written	to  standard  error,  that includes the file name and the line
       number where it occurred.  The format is as follows:

	      as: "filename",line line: error error: message
		  source = source-line

       does not invoke cpp(1) or m4(1) to perform macro processing.

       Hardware register definitions
       Software calling convention register definitions
       Standard space and subspace definition
       Assembler error message catalog
       Space, subspace and register definitions
       Object file
