8.19.3 Symbolic Operand Modifiers

The assembler supports several modifiers when using symbol addresses in 68HC11 and 68HC12 instruction operands. The general syntax is the following:

     %modifier(symbol)
%addr
This modifier indicates to the assembler and linker to use the 16-bit physical address corresponding to the symbol. This is intended to be used on memory window systems to map a symbol in the memory bank window. If the symbol is in a memory expansion part, the physical address corresponds to the symbol address within the memory bank window. If the symbol is not in a memory expansion part, this is the symbol address (using or not using the %addr modifier has no effect in that case).
%page
This modifier indicates to use the memory page number corresponding to the symbol. If the symbol is in a memory expansion part, its page number is computed by the linker as a number used to map the page containing the symbol in the memory bank window. If the symbol is not in a memory expansion part, the page number is 0.
%hi
This modifier indicates to use the 8-bit high part of the physical address of the symbol.
%lo
This modifier indicates to use the 8-bit low part of the physical address of the symbol.

For example a 68HC12 call to a function `foo_example' stored in memory expansion part could be written as follows:

     call %addr(foo_example),%page(foo_example)

and this is equivalent to

     call foo_example

And for 68HC11 it could be written as follows:

     ldab #%page(foo_example)
     stab _page_switch
     jsr  %addr(foo_example)
