3.1.7. Pre-executing a SET directive

You can instruct the assembler to pre-execute one of the SET directives using the following option:

--predefine "directive"

You must enclose directive in quotes. See SETA, SETL, and SETS. The assembler also executes a corresponding GBLL, GBLS, or GBLA directive to define the variable before setting its value.

The variable name is case-sensitive.


The command line interface of your system might require you to enter special character combinations, such as \”, to include strings in directive. Alternatively, you can use --via file to include a --predefine argument. The command line interface does not alter arguments from --via files.
