14.19.8 Output of Dispatch Tables

This concerns dispatch tables.

— Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_ADDR_DIFF_ELT (stream, body, value, rel)

A C statement to output to the stdio stream stream an assembler pseudo-instruction to generate a difference between two labels. value and rel are the numbers of two internal labels. The definitions of these labels are output using (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label), and they must be printed in the same way here. For example,

          fprintf (stream, "\t.word L%d-L%d\n",
                   value, rel)
     

You must provide this macro on machines where the addresses in a dispatch table are relative to the table's own address. If defined, GCC will also use this macro on all machines when producing PIC. body is the body of the ADDR_DIFF_VEC; it is provided so that the mode and flags can be read.

— Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_ADDR_VEC_ELT (stream, value)

This macro should be provided on machines where the addresses in a dispatch table are absolute.

The definition should be a C statement to output to the stdio stream stream an assembler pseudo-instruction to generate a reference to a label. value is the number of an internal label whose definition is output using (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label). For example,

          fprintf (stream, "\t.word L%d\n", value)
     
— Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_CASE_LABEL (stream, prefix, num, table)

Define this if the label before a jump-table needs to be output specially. The first three arguments are the same as for (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label); the fourth argument is the jump-table which follows (a jump_insn containing an addr_vec or addr_diff_vec).

This feature is used on system V to output a swbeg statement for the table.

If this macro is not defined, these labels are output with (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label).

— Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_CASE_END (stream, num, table)

Define this if something special must be output at the end of a jump-table. The definition should be a C statement to be executed after the assembler code for the table is written. It should write the appropriate code to stdio stream stream. The argument table is the jump-table insn, and num is the label-number of the preceding label.

If this macro is not defined, nothing special is output at the end of the jump-table.

— Target Hook: void TARGET_ASM_EMIT_UNWIND_LABEL (stream, decl, for_eh, empty)

This target hook emits a label at the beginning of each FDE. It should be defined on targets where FDEs need special labels, and it should write the appropriate label, for the FDE associated with the function declaration decl, to the stdio stream stream. The third argument, for_eh, is a boolean: true if this is for an exception table. The fourth argument, empty, is a boolean: true if this is a placeholder label for an omitted FDE.

The default is that FDEs are not given nonlocal labels.

— Taget Hook: void TARGET_UNWIND_EMIT (FILE * stream, rtx insn)

This target hook emits and assembly directives required to unwind the given instruction. This is only used when TARGET_UNWIND_INFO is set.
