9.46.4 Z80 Assembler Directives

as for the Z80 supports some additional directives for compatibility with other assemblers.

These are the additional directives in as for the Z80:

db expression|string[,expression|string...]
defb expression|string[,expression|string...]
For each string the characters are copied to the object file, for each other expression the value is stored in one byte. A warning is issued in case of an overflow.
dw expression[,expression...]
defw expression[,expression...]
For each expression the value is stored in two bytes, ignoring overflow.
d24 expression[,expression...]
def24 expression[,expression...]
For each expression the value is stored in three bytes, ignoring overflow.
d32 expression[,expression...]
def32 expression[,expression...]
For each expression the value is stored in four bytes, ignoring overflow.
ds count[, value]
defs count[, value]
Fill count bytes in the object file with value, if value is omitted it defaults to zero.
symbol equ expression
symbol defl expression
These directives set the value of symbol to expression. If equ is used, it is an error if symbol is already defined. Symbols defined with equ are not protected from redefinition.
set
This is a normal instruction on Z80, and not an assembler directive.
psect name
A synonym for See Section, no second argument should be given.
