# GET or INCLUDE

The GET directive includes a file within the file being assembled. The included file is assembled at the location of the GET directive. INCLUDE is a synonym for GET.

### Syntax

GET filename

where:

filename

is the name of the file to be included in the assembly. The assembler accepts pathnames in either UNIX or MS-DOS format.

## Usage

GET is useful for including macro definitions, EQUs, and storage maps in an assembly. When assembly of the included file is complete, assembly continues at the line following the GET directive.

By default the assembler searches the current place for included files. The current place is the directory where the calling file is located. Use the -i assembler command line option to add directories to the search path. File names and directory names containing spaces must not be enclosed in double quotes ( " " ).

The included file can contain additional GET directives to include other files.

If the included file is in a different directory from the current place, this becomes the current place until the end of the included file. The previous current place is then restored.

You cannot use GET to include object files.

## Examples

AREA   Example, CODE, READONLY
GET    file1.s                  ; includes file1 if it exists in the current place
GET    c:\project\file2.s       ; includes file2
GET    c:\Program files\file3.s ; space is permitted
