The idas command assembles the named file.
The following flags may be specified in any order:
Do not produce line number information in the object file.

Turn off long/short address optimization.
By default, address optimization takes place.
Put the output of the assembly in objfile.
By default, the output file name is formed by removing the
.s suffix, if there is one, from the input file
name and appending a .o suffix.
Remove (unlink) the input file after assembly is completed.
Write the version number of the assembler being run
on the standard error output.
Find the m4 preprocessor (m)
