[PATCH]: New options for HC11/HC12 gas to specify the ABI


The HC11/HC12 port stores in the elf flags the ABI (16/32 bit int, 32/64 bit double).
It is possible to control the ABI by using a .mode opcode in gas.  This patch adds
several options to specify the ABI from the command line.  Options are named to follow
gcc (or be close to it).  Use of these options is easier in most cases.

I've committed this patch with associated doc.


2002-12-01  Stephane Carrez  <>

	* config/tc-m68hc11.c (elf_flags): Set default ABI to gcc default
	(32-bit int, 64-bit double).
	(md_longopts): New options -mshort, -mlong, -mshort-double and
	-mlong-double to control the ABI.
	(md_show_usage): Update.
	(md_parse_option): Handle new options.
	* doc/as.texinfo (Overview): Document new options for HC11/HC12.
