This page is going to discuss SPARC Pseudo-Ops.

Pseudo-Ops[edit | edit source]

In addition to the SPARC instructions and synthetic instructions, there are a number of assembler-provided "Pseudo-Ops" that create convenience for the programmer.

  • .ascii
  • .asciz
  • .text
  • .data
  • .bss
  • .skip
  • .align
  • .byte
  • .half
  • .word
  • .single
  • .double
  • .quad
  • .global
  • .common
  • .empty

This chapter will (hopefully) discuss each of these.
