Usage

Embedded assembly

The __asm keyword can declare or define an embedded assembly function. For example:

{
    int res;
    __asm
    {
        QADD   res, i, j
    }
    return res;
}
Assembly labels

The __asm keyword can specify an assembly label for a C symbol. For example:

int count __asm__("count_v1"); // export count_v1, not count
Named register variables

The __asm keyword can declare a named register variable. For example:

register int foo __asm("r0");
