.type int (COFF version)

This directive, permitted only within .def/.endef pairs, records the integer int as the type attribute of a symbol table entry.

.type is associated only with COFF format output; when as is configured for b.out output, it accepts this directive but ignores it.

.type name , type description (ELF version)

This directive is used to set the type of symbol name to be either a function symbol or an object symbol. There are five different syntaxes supported for the type description field, in order to provide compatibility with various other assemblers. The syntaxes supported are:

  .type <name>,#function
  .type <name>,#object

  .type <name>,@function
  .type <name>,@object

  .type <name>,%function
  .type <name>,%object

  .type <name>,"function"
  .type <name>,"object"

  .type <name> STT_FUNCTION
  .type <name> STT_OBJECT
