8.8.2.2 Register Names

You can use predefined symbols of the form `rnh' and `rnl' to refer to the H8/300 registers as sixteen 8-bit general-purpose registers. n is a digit from `0' to `7'); for instance, both `r0h' and `r7l' are valid register names.

You can also use the eight predefined symbols `rn' to refer to the H8/300 registers as 16-bit registers (you must use this form for addressing).

On the H8/300H, you can also use the eight predefined symbols `ern' (`er0' ... `er7') to refer to the 32-bit general purpose registers.

The two control registers are called pc (program counter; a 16-bit register, except on the H8/300H where it is 24 bits) and ccr (condition code register; an 8-bit register). r7 is used as the stack pointer, and can also be called sp.
