Where can I find Motorola as format?

Where can I find Motorola as format?

Where can I find Motorola as format?

I have a large (40,000 line) assembly program for the M680040 processor which I am porting to run on VxWorks.  Trouble is VxWorks uses C language calls to access system services.  I can write a C routine calling a service and compile it with an option that produces a .s assembly file, but the assembly is in as format while my code is in asm format.

It's been years since I had an as assembler and I've forgotten the nuances of the as format.  Does anyone know where I can find a reference on the as format assemble language for the Motorola M68k processor family?


RE: Where can I find Motorola as format?

These reference all use the asm format.  Here is an example of what I am seeing:

    .global _helloWorld
      pea a6@
      movel sp.a6
      pea 20:w
      jbsr _exit
      unlk a6

For example, the asm format does not have a jbsr operation.  There is:

    jsr - jump to subroutine
    bsr - branch to subroutine

An is the operand a6@ the same as (a6)?  I don't know.

maybe the MIT to Motorola and Motorola to MIT conversion program here can help you?
