‘
.a
’
 Emits Nbit values, where N is the size of an address on the target system.

‘
.b
’
 Emits 8bit values.

‘
.d
’
 Emits double precision floatingpoint values.

‘
.l
’
 Emits 32bit values.

‘
.s
’
 Emits single precision floatingpoint values.

‘
.w
’
 Emits 16bit values. Note  this is true even on targets where the
.word
directive would emit 32bit values.

‘
.x
’
 Emits long double precision floatingpoint values.
If no suffix is used then ‘
.w
’ is assumed.
The byte ordering is target dependent, as is the size and format of floating point values.
