7.7.16. NOFP

The NOFP directive disallows floating-point instructions in an assembly language source file.




Use NOFP to ensure that no floating-pointinstructions are used in situations where there is no support for floating-point instructions either in software or in target hardware.

If a floating-point instruction occurs after the NOFP directive, an Unknown opcode error is generated and the assembly fails.

If a NOFP directive occurs after a floating-point instruction, the assembler generates the error:

Too late to ban floating point instructions

and the assembly fails.
