Asm, typically invoked as “go tool asm”, assembles the source file into an object file named for the basename of the argument source file with a .o suffix. The object file can then be combined with other objects into a package archive.
go tool asm [flags] file
The specified file must be a Go assembly file. The same assembler is used for all target operating systems and architectures. The GOOS and GOARCH environment variables set the desired target.
-D name[=value] Predefine symbol name with an optional simple value. Can be repeated to define multiple symbols. -I dir1 -I dir2 Search for #include files in dir1, dir2, etc, after consulting $GOROOT/pkg/$GOOS_$GOARCH. -S Print assembly and machine code. -V Print assembler version and exit. -debug Dump instructions as they are parsed. -dynlink Support references to Go symbols defined in other shared libraries. -gensymabis Write symbol ABI information to output file. Don't assemble. -o file Write output to file. The default is foo.o for /a/b/c/foo.s. -shared Generate code that can be linked into a shared library. -spectre list Enable spectre mitigations in list (all, ret). -trimpath prefix Remove prefix from recorded source file paths.
The assembler uses mostly the same syntax for all architectures, the main variation having to do with addressing modes. Input is run through a simplified C preprocessor that implements #include, #define, #ifdef/endif, but not #if or ##.
