asm, disdump - Dis assembler, Dis disassembler


asm [-l] file
disdump file...


Asm reads one Dis assembly language file and translates it into instructions for the Dis virtual machine. The output is written to a file whose name is created by taking the last element of the input file, stripping any extension, and appending .dis For example, the output file for abc would be abc.dis; the output file for dir/def.s, would be def.dis.

The assembler has one option:

Generate a listing, showing the generated object code.

Disdump prints to the standard output the Dis virtual machine instructions in each of its Dis file arguments.

There isn't a Limbo version of asm, which is therefore available only as a host command; but then again it is hardly used.
