gpasm - GNU PIC assembler
gpasm [options] file
The information in this man page is an extract from the full
documentation of gputils and is limited to the meaning of the options.
For complete and current documentation, refer to "gputils.ps" located
in the gputils docs directory.
gpasm is an assembler for Microchip (TM) PIC (TM) micro-controllers.
It’s intended to be compatible with the manufacturer’s MPASM assembler.
gpasm is part of gputils. Check the gputils(1) manpage for details on
other GNU PIC utilities.
Below is a summary of the gpasm options. gpasm options always
supersede any settings in the source code.
-a FMT, --hex-format FMT
GPASM supports inhx8m, inhx8s, inhx16, and inhx32 hex file
formats. This option controls which hex file format is used.
The default is inhx32.
Output a relocatable object (old COFF format).
Output a relocatable object (new COFF format).
Output debug messages.
-D SYM=VAL, --define SYM=VAL
Define SYM with value VAL. This is equivalent to placing
"#define SYM VAL" in the source.
-e [ON|OFF], --expand [ON|OFF]
Macro expansion in the listing file is controlled using the
EXPAND and NOEXPAND directives. This option can force either
directive to be ignored. When "ON" is selected the macros are
always expanded regardless of the presence of NOEXPAND.
Likewise, "OFF" will force macros not to be expanded.
Use debug directives for COFF.
Show the usage message.
All user defined symbols and macros are case sensitive. This
option makes them case insensitive.
-I DIR, --include DIR
The top level assembly file is passed to gpasm as an argument.
This file can contain INCLUDE directives. These directives open
the specified file and then its contents are assembled. GPASM
searches for these files in the local directory. If the file is
not located, the default header path is checked. Finally, all
paths specified using this argument are searched.
Ignore NOLIST directives. This forces gpasm to print every line
assembled in the list file output.
List the supported processors.
Upon completion of the final pass of assembly, display the
contents of instruction memory.
Output a dependency file.
By default, gpasm generates hex files using ISO format.
However, some device programmers required a DOS formatted file.
This option will cause gpasm to generate a DOS formatted hex
-o FILE, --output FILE
Alternate name of the output file.
-p PROC, --processor PROC
Select the processor.
Suppress anything sent to standard output.
-r RADIX, --radix RADIX
The supported radices are BIN, DEC, OCT, and HEX. The default
Show the version.
-w [0|1|2], --warning [0|1|2]
This option sets the message level. "0" is the default. It will
allow all messages, warnings, and errors to be reported. "1"
will suppress the messages. "2" will suppress the messages and
Enable 18xx extended mode.
