`.dcb[``size`] `number` [,`fill`]

This directive emits `number` copies of `fill`, each of `size` bytes. Both `number` and `fill` are absolute expressions. If the comma and `fill` are omitted, `fill` is assumed to be zero. The `size` suffix, if present, must be one of:

`‘`

`.b`’-
Emits single byte values.

`‘`

`.d`’-
Emits double-precision floating point values.

`‘`

`.l`’-
Emits 4-byte values.

`‘`

`.s`’-
Emits single-precision floating point values.

`‘`

`.w`’-
Emits 2-byte values.

`‘`

`.x`’-
Emits long double-precision floating point values.

If the `size` suffix is omitted then ‘`.w`’ is assumed.

The byte ordering is target dependent, as is the size and format of floating point values.
