QUESTION

Is it possible to assign a name to an absolute segment in assembler?

ANSWER

This is not possible with the A51 Assembler since this is a limitation of the OMF51 Object File Format. You may, however, create a relocatable segment and locate it at a specific address using the linker. Then, the segment will have a name (because it is relocatable).

This is possible when you use the Ax51 Assembler which emits OMF2 Object Modules.
