8A(1) 8A(1) NAME 0a, 5a, 6a, 8a, 9a, ka, qa, va - assemblers SYNOPSIS 8a [ option ... ] [ name ... ] etc. DESCRIPTION These programs assemble the named files into object files for the corresponding architectures; see 8c(1) for the cor- respondence between an architecture and the character (6, 8, etc.) that specifies it. The assemblers handle the most common C preprocessor directives and the associated command-line options -D and -I. Other options are: -o obj Place output in file obj (allowed only if there is just one input file). Default is to take the last element of the input path name, strip any trailing .s, and append .O, where O is first letter of the assembler's name. FILES The directory /sys/include is searched for include files after machine-dependent files in /$objtype/include. SOURCE /sys/src/cmd/8a, etc. SEE ALSO 8c(1), 8l(1).
