.CODE Defines Code Segment Directive
The .CODE directive is a short-cut way of defining the code segment.
You must have first defined a memory model (see .MODEL). To
define a code segment, place the .CODE directive in your source
code, followed by the statements you want in the code segment.
You end the definition of the code segment with another segment
directive (such as .DATA) or an END directive, which indicates the
end of the file.
The advantage of .CODE is that it is translated into the standard code
segment name for that memory model when the file is assembled, which
makes it easy to link into high-level languages.
Notes: If you are using the MEDIUM or LARGE memory model, you
can follow .CODE with a name that identifies that segment.
This way, you can define multiple segments.
