9.38.3 Assembler Directives
The RX version of
as has the following specific
- Inserts a 3-byte value into the output file at the current location.
- If the next opcode following this directive spans a fetch line
boundary (8 byte boundary), the opcode is aligned to that boundary.
If the next opcode does not span a fetch line, this directive has no
effect. Note that one or more labels may be between this directive
and the opcode; those labels are aligned as well. Any inserted bytes
due to alignment will form a NOP opcode.
