.FARDATA? Define Far Uninitialized Data Segment Directive
The .FARDATA? directive is used to start the definition of a far
uninitialized data segment. You define uninitialized data with the ?
The statements following .FARDATA? are put into the FAR
uninitialized data segment(s). You end the definition of the segment
with another segment directive (such as .CODE), or an END directive
which indicates the end of the file.
Before you use .FARDATA?, you must have defined a memory model with
the .MODEL directive.
The advantage of .FARDATA? is that it is translated into the
standard FAR data segment name(s) for that memory model when the
file is assembled, which makes it easy to link into high-level
Notes: FAR data segments are not put together into a
group, and all entries in them are identified by 32-bit
addresses. You can use as many .FARDATA? directives as
you want in a file.
