Hi folks:

I am also using the powerpc cross compiler. My question is this. I cant f=
any documentation of the GNU assembler (as/gas) powerpc port ??? the info=
man pages dont mention the powerpc arch at all ???=20

I am trying to figure out the assembly syntax for a port I am working on =
to the
mpc8260 processor.  I have figured some of it out but would apreciate som=
more info.

Thanks in advance.
