12.8 Labels for register-relative addresses

A label can represent a named register plus a numeric value. You define these labels in a storage map. They are most commonly used to access data in data sections.

You can use the EQU directive to define additional register-relative labels, based on labels defined in storage maps.


Register-relative addresses are not supported in A64 code.
