critical impact:

asm, dasm, fasm - not available; use Asm_* opcode instructions (CrUn319)

CC Impacts

Problem description

The asm, dasm, and fasm functions exist on Tru64 UNIX but not on HP-UX. However, a replacement technology exists in the Asm_* instructions on HP-UX.

See section 2.9, Inline Assembly Code ASMs, in the Tru64 UNIX Version 5.1B Programmer's Guide for more information on ASMs.

Solution description

Use the Asm_* opcode instructions on HP-UX to achieve similar results.

The recommended approach for inlining assembly code is to use the Asm_* opcode instructions. Review your code, the applicable manpages, and the inline assembly for Itanium-based HP-UX External Reference Specification (ERS) for more information on inlining assembly instructions into your C/C++ programs.
