Compiler Directives

Top  Previous  Next

Compiler Directives are statements that tell the compiler to take some action at compile time. These statements are not included in the executable program object code which the compiler generates. Therefore, there is no run-time overhead associated with their use.

 

ASSERT (set assumption for debugging)

BEGIN (define code structure)

COMPILE (specify source to compile)

EQUATE (assign label)

INCLUDE (compile code in another file)

ITEMIZE (enumeration data structure)

OMIT (specify source not to be compiled)

ONCE (prevent duplicate included data)

SECTION (specify source code section)

SIZE (memory size in bytes)
