2A(1)                                                       2A(1)

     NAME
          2a, 6a, 8a, ka, va, xa - assemblers

     SYNOPSIS
          2a [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
          6a [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
          8a [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
          ka [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
          va [ option ... ] [ name ... ]
          xa [ option ... ] [ name ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          2a, 6a, 8a, ka, va, and xa assemble the named files into
          MC68020, i960, i386, SPARC, MIPS, and ATT3210 object files.
          The assemblers handle the most common C preprocessor direc-
          tives 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/2a, etc.

     SEE ALSO
