While dealing with the opensource tool using assembly for some tasks, I encountered the following error messages:

Unknown pseudo-op: .balign

Unknown pseudo-op: .hidden

Unknown pseudo-op: .type

They seem all come from the fact that my assembler is pretty old. I'm using the apple binutils. My system assembler as its version being Apple Computer, Inc. version cctools-622.9~2, GNU assembler version 1.38, my gentoo-prefix reports it's Apple Inc version cctools-698.1, GNU assembler version 1.38, so not much younger.

The GNU Assembler manual Using as comtains a list of supported assembler directives as well.


.balign seems to allign the location counter until it is aligned. That would make loading of code more efficient. It could be done manually as well by inserting no-operation instructions so that the instruction pointer moves manually to the next aligned position.


.hidden changes the visibility to "hidden". That works only on systems using ELF as their binary formats, so it can safely be omitted on MacOSX. On other systems it could be probably removed, when the linker can issue warnings on duplicate symbols.


.type sets the type of a symbol, for example "int". ELF formats seem to support more types that COFF, but MacOSX uses dwarf-2, especially with Xcode, and I have no clue what the options are there.

It would only take about 25min just to get to the intersection in Downtown Evergreen which is from the Clear Creek County section of
Evergreen in the Brook Forest Estates community. Check
their references, look for agents that are good at what they do and
are also successful with their job. The lack of inventory
in the low and middle range of the market drove the average
home prices up 8.

Pay-per-click marketing, however, should be handled like any other as
a type of paid advertising: gingerly, and with a definite,
quantifiable short- or medium-term goal at heart. Put another way, pay attention to conversions, perhaps not ticks.

In addition, with more people age 65 and over remaining in the
job market, Colorado's strong economy boosts its attractiveness in the segment of the
population, according to NAR. A multi-line phone system is a necessity as well as a dedicated server and high speed broadband internet access.
If you have any doubt concerning it then you can consult to some expert.

No matter how damaged and wrecked the condition of your
old car is, you can still sell the car for cash. You can speed
up the process if you know the dealer invoice or Blue Book value of the car; the
best consumer place to find out true dealer cost or what a pre-owned car is worth is
by far Edmunds. Under this scheme a certain agreed amount of donation is deducted from the salary and donated
directly by the employer to the Australian charity.

Usually, there are no published fares and the customers are end up
paying what the agents demand for a ticket. Your credit file might
not reflect all your clear credit score accounts. There is no need to stand in the queues in front of the lenders to beg some urgent
funds when the online way is open to you.

Unless they represent both the buyer and seller, the real estate agent will then also have to
divide his commissions with their brokerage and the buyer's agent which often means a lot of work for less pay than some other jobs.

as property taxes and mortgage interest charges.
Over the past year, a significant increase in employment of 2.
