YAA - Yet Another Assembler.
yaa srcfile [options]
(+|-)Clear (-) (+|-)Verbose
- is a file of YAA source code. YAA code is described in
"expl yaa manual".
- is used in conjunction with Update= to create a new
object library. When +Clear and Update=file appear on the
same command line, the file is created (if necessary) and
initialized as an object library. If the file already
exists, its contents are cleared (destroyed) and it is
- gives the name of an "include" directory. If
YAA encounters a ".include" pseudo-op, YAA will
search for the file under the directories named in
Include= options. If the file cannot be found in one of
these directories, YAA will then search the current
directory. A command line may contain more than one
Include= option. Include directories will be searched in
the order given on the command line.
- names an initialization file. YAA will execute the
commands in this file before any other input. A typical
initialization file might set listing options, create
search rules, define standard macros, etc. If no
initialization file is specified on the command line, YAA
will use the default_initialization file
- indicates that listings should be created with lines that
are a maximum of "nn" characters long, where
"nn" is an integer. For best results,
"nn" should be a number greater than 130. The
minimum acceptable value for "nn" is 72.
- indicates that a source listing should be written into
the given file. If this option is not specified, YAA will
not produce a listing and will ignore all other options
and directives that relate to listings.
- writes the assembled object code to the given file.
- indicates that listings should be created with
"nn" lines per page, where "nn" is an
integer. The minimum acceptable value of "nn"
- inserts the given string as the first source code to be
assembled (before the normal YAA source code). For
yaa file p=".define DEBUG,1"
will assemble the given ".define" statement
and then go on to the source code in "file".
Only one Prepend= option is allowed on a command line.
However, ';' characters are allowed in the string, so one
Prepend= option can actually specify several YAA
- names the system for which object code will be prepared.
The current version of YAA only supports GCOS8.
- adds the assembled code to an object library in the given
The name YAA actually represents a compatible set of
assemblers for various systems. They use the same pseudo-ops,
input format, macro structures, etc., but each is aimed at
assembling the instruction set of a particular machine. For more
information, see "expl yaa manual".
runtime/yaa_init - default initialization file
The name YAA may change in the near future.
