Error and Warning Messages
`as' may write warnings and error messages to the standard error
file (usually your terminal). This should not happen when a compiler
runs `as' automatically. Warnings report an assumption made so that
`as' could keep assembling a flawed program; errors report a grave
problem that stops the assembly.
Warning messages have the format
file_name:NNN:Warning Message Text
(where NNN is a line number). If a logical file name has been given
(*note `.file': File.) it is used for the filename, otherwise the name
of the current input file is used. If a logical line number was given
(*note `.line': Line.) then it is used to calculate the number printed,
otherwise the actual line in the current source file is printed. The
message text is intended to be self explanatory (in the grand Unix
Error messages have the format
file_name:NNN:FATAL:Error Message Text

them aren't supposed to happen.
