Re: MIPS assembly error


Your first example used .word.  The MIPS assembler automatically
aligns .word values to the natural alignment.  That introduces an
implicit alignment directive, and in the first pass gas is not
immediately sure how much space that will take up.

Could this be handled in a subsequent pass? i.e. After gas knows how much space this will take up could it come back and try to simplify anything that initally spanned multiple frags?
