1.2.3 $ASMMODE : Assembler mode (Intel 80x86 only)

The {$ASMMODE XXX} directive informs the compiler what kind of assembler it can expect in an asm block. The XXX should be replaced by one of the following:

Indicates that asm blocks contain AT&T syntax assembler.
Indicates that asm blocks contain Intel syntax assembler.
Tells the compiler that asm blocks should be copied directly to the assembler file. It is not possible to use such assembler blocks when the internal assembler of the compiler is used.

These switches are local, and retain their value to the end of the unit that is compiled, unless they are replaced by another directive of the same type. The command line switch that corresponds to this switch is -R.

The default assembler reader is the AT&T reader.
