8.5.4.4 Assembler Directives

There are a few CRIS-specific pseudo-directives in addition to the generic ones. See Pseudo Ops. Constants emitted by pseudo-directives are in little-endian order for CRIS. There is no support for floating-point-specific directives for CRIS.

.dword EXPRESSIONS
The .dword directive is a synonym for .int, expecting zero or more EXPRESSIONS, separated by commas. For each expression, a 32-bit little-endian constant is emitted.
.syntax ARGUMENT
The .syntax directive takes as ARGUMENT one of the following case-sensitive choices.
no_register_prefix
The .syntax no_register_prefix directive makes a `$' character prefix on all registers optional. It overrides a previous setting, including the corresponding effect of the option --no-underscore. If this directive is used when ordinary symbols do not have a `_' character prefix, care must be taken to avoid ambiguities whether an operand is a register or a symbol; using symbols with names the same as general or special registers then invoke undefined behavior.
register_prefix
This directive makes a `$' character prefix on all registers mandatory. It overrides a previous setting, including the corresponding effect of the option --underscore.
leading_underscore
This is an assertion directive, emitting an error if the --no-underscore option is in effect.
no_leading_underscore
This is the opposite of the .syntax leading_underscore directive and emits an error if the option --underscore is in effect.

.arch ARGUMENT
This is an assertion directive, giving an error if the specified ARGUMENT is not the same as the specified or default value for the --march=architecture option (see march-option).
