9.40.3 Vax Machine Directives

The Vax version of the assembler supports four directives for generating Vax floating point constants. They are described in the table below.

.dfloat
This expects zero or more flonums, separated by commas, and assembles Vax d format 64-bit floating point constants.


.ffloat
This expects zero or more flonums, separated by commas, and assembles Vax f format 32-bit floating point constants.


.gfloat
This expects zero or more flonums, separated by commas, and assembles Vax g format 64-bit floating point constants.


.hfloat
This expects zero or more flonums, separated by commas, and assembles Vax h format 128-bit floating point constants.
