15.46 INCBIN

The INCBIN directive includes a file within the file being assembled. The file is included as it is, without being assembled.

Syntax

INCBIN filename

where:

filename

is the name of the file to be included in the assembly. The assembler accepts pathnames in either UNIX or MS-DOS format.

Usage

You can use INCBIN to include executable files, literals, or any arbitrary data. The contents of the file are added to the current ELF section, byte for byte, without being interpreted in any way. Assembly continues at the line following the INCBIN directive.

By default, the assembler searches the current place for included files. The current place is the directory where the calling file is located. Use the -i assembler command-line option to add directories to the search path. File names and directory names containing spaces must not be enclosed in double quotes ( " " ).

Example

     AREA    Example, CODE, READONLY
     INCBIN  file1.dat              ; Includes file1 if it exists in the current place
     INCBIN  c:\project\file2.txt   ; Includes file2.
