.xline Pseudo-op


Represents a line number.


.xline Number1,StringConstant[,Number2]


The .xline pseudo-op provides additional file and line number information to the assembler. The Number2 parameter can be used to generate .bi and .ei type entries for use by symbolic debuggers. This pseudo-op is customarily inserted by the M4 macro processor.


Number1 Represents the line number of the original source file.
StringConstant Represents the file name of the original source file.
Number2 Represents the C_BINCL and C_EINCL classes, which indicate the beginning and ending of an included file, respectively.


The following example illustrates the use of the .xline pseudo-op:

.xline 1,"hello.c",108
.xline 2,"hello.c"
