TYPEDEC Assembler Statement

TYPEDEC symbol: type <[>, ...<]>

The TYPEDEC statement defines a symbol's type. It is used to provide type information for forward-referenced symbols.

The Keil A166 Assembler is a three-pass assembler that automatically determines symbol types in pass two. For this reason, using the TYPEDEC statement is unnecessary and is ignored by the A166 Assembler.


  • The TYPEDEC statement is provided for compatibility with assemblers from other development tool vendors.
