15.28 EXPORTAS

The EXPORTAS directive enables you to export a symbol from the object file, corresponding to a different symbol in the source file.

Syntax

EXPORTAS symbol1, symbol2

where:

symbol1

is the symbol name in the source file. symbol1 must have been defined already. It can be any symbol, including an area name, a label, or a constant.

symbol2

is the symbol name you want to appear in the object file.

The symbol names are case-sensitive.

Usage

Use EXPORTAS to change a symbol in the object file without having to change every instance in the source file.

Examples

    AREA data1, DATA       ; Starts a new area data1.
    AREA data2, DATA       ; Starts a new area data2.
    EXPORTAS data2, data1  ; The section symbol referred to as data2
                           ; appears in the object file string table as data1.
