21.54 NOFP

The NOFP directive ensures that there are no floating-point instructions in an assembly language source file.

Syntax

NOFP

Usage

Use NOFP to ensure that no floating-point instructions 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.
