The i386 version of
as has a few machine
--32 | --64
- Select the word size, either 32 bits or 64 bits. Selecting 32-bit
implies Intel i386 architecture, while 64-bit implies AMD x86-64
These options are only available with the ELF object file format, and
require that the necessary BFD support has been included (on a 32-bit
platform you have to add –enable-64-bit-bfd to configure enable 64-bit
usage and use x86-64 as target platform).
- By default, x86 GAS replaces multiple nop instructions used for
alignment within code sections with multi-byte nop instructions such
as leal 0(%esi,1),%esi. This switch disables the optimization.
- On SVR4-derived platforms, the character `/' is treated as a comment
character, which means that it cannot be used in expressions. The
`--divide' option turns `/' into a normal character. This does
not disable `/' at the beginning of a line starting a comment, or
affect using `#' for starting a comment.
