Instruction width

If you specify the .W specifier, the instruction is encoded in 32 bits even if it can be encoded in 16 bits. You can use a diagnostic warning to detect when a branch instruction could have been encoded in 16 bits, but has been encoded in 32 bits. To do this, use the following command-line option when invoking the assembler:

armasm --diag_warning 1607


This diagnostic does not produce a warning for relocated branch instructions, because the final address is not known. The linker might even insert a veneer, if the branch is out of range for a 32-bit instruction.
