CodeWarrior 2.7 linker trouble with WRITEx command

Hi all, 

 

According to the linker manual, the commands WRITEx(expression) emit a byte, half-word, or word at the current location. There are a few examples of usage available, which led me to think that this should work to emit the byte 0x34 at the first byte of memory in myMemoryBlock:

 

   .mySection : {      WRITEB(0x34);   } > myMemoryBlock

However, this kind of syntax always results in the linker complaining about a missing identifier. Has anyone used the WRITEx commands in CodeWarrior 2.7?

 

(I'm also puzzled why LONG(), SHORT(), and BYTE() are apparently supported, but not documented.)

 

Thanks,

-Adam
