as implements all the standard H8/300 opcodes. No additional pseudo-instructions are needed on this family.
Four H8/300 instructions (add, cmp, mov, sub) are defined with variants using the suffixes .b, .w, and .l to specify the size of a memory operand. as supports these suffixes, but does not require them; since one of the operands is always a register, as can deduce the correct size.
For example, since r0 refers to a 16-bit register,
mov r0,@foo is equivalent to mov.w r0,@foo
If you use the size suffixes, as issues a warning when the suffix and the register size do not match.
