A branch target which is a 16-bit signed integer treated as a PC-relative dword offset.

This operand may be specified as:

  • An integer_number. The number is truncated to 16 bits.
  • An absolute_expression which must start with an integer_number. The value of the expression is truncated to 16 bits.
  • A symbol (for example, a label). The value is handled as a 16-bit PC-relative dword offset to be resolved by a linker.


offset = 30
s_branch loop_end
s_branch 2 + offset
s_branch 32
