@pcl( symbol )
Relative distance of symbol 's from the current program counter location.
@gotpc( symbol )
Relative distance of symbol 's Global Offset Table entry from the current program counter location.
@gotoff( symbol )
Distance of symbol from the base of the Global Offset Table.
@plt( symbol )
Distance of symbol 's Procedure Linkage Table entry from the current program counter. This is valid only with branch and link instructions and PC-relative calls.
@sda( symbol )
Relative distance of symbol from the base of the Small Data Pointer.
