The Special Dot Symbol
The special symbol `.' refers to the current address that `as' is
assembling into. Thus, the expression `melvin: .long .' defines
`melvin' to contain its own address. Assigning a value to `.' is
treated the same as a `.org' directive. Thus, the expression `.=.+4'
is the same as saying `.space 4'.
