i386 UNIX 'as' Assembler syntax

i386 UNIX 'as' Assembler syntax

Post by Admira » Sun, 14 Nov 1993 03:57:25


I was wondering if anyone could provide a pointer to reference material
on how to write code for the i386 UNIX assembler. I have SCO Unix 'as'
and 'gas' (2.1.1 but am in the process of 2.2 upgrading).

The idea is to be able to write a back end for the compiler my class
"Compilers & Interpreters" has been writing. We currently have a MIPS
back end, but seeing as I don't know of a single MIPS machine here at
Yale, it is rather silly.

Pointers to the same material for SunOS 4.1.x 'as' and 'gas' would
also be appreciated; maybe I'll get enough info on one of the two
subjects to be able to write one of the backends.

1. Linux i386 assembler with Intel/Microsoft syntax?

Is there an i386 assembler for Linux which understands the Intel/Microsoft
syntax for source files?

I've got a 1,000-line asm source file which was originally written for a
Microsoft-compatible assembler.  The prospect of translating it into C, or
even a gasp-readable file, is daunting.

Thank you.

8. Unix's 'rz' & 'sz'

9. GCC's inline assembler, and it's apparent lack of knowledge
