<h3> Overview </h3>
Assemblers in MLRISC satisfy the signature 
<a href="../emit/instruction-emitter.sig" target=code>INSTRUCTION_EMITTER</a>,
which is defined as:

   structure I : <a href="instructions.html">INSTRUCTIONS</a>
   structure C : <a href="cells.html">CELLS</a>
   structure S : <a href="streams.html">INSTRUCTION_STREAM</a>
   structure P : <a href="pseudo-ops.html">PSEUDO_OPS</a>
      sharing I.C = C  
      sharing S.P = P

   val makeStream : Annotations.annotation list -> 
          (I.instruction,'a,'b) S.stream

The function <tt>makeStream</tt> returns an instruction stream.
By default the output is bound to the stream <tt>AsmStream.asmOutStream</tt> 
defined in the structure 
<a href="../emit/asmStream.sml" target=code> AsmStream</a> at creation time.
The structure <tt>AsmStream</tt> satisfy the following signature.
signature ASM_STREAM = sig
  val asmOutStream : TextIO.outstream ref
  val withStream : TextIO.outstream -> ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b
<h3> Redirecting the Output </h3>
It is possible to redirect the output of an instruction stream.
For example, the following statement
   val asm = makeStream []
binds the output of <tt>asm</tt> to <tt>AsmStream.asmOutStream</tt>, which
by default is just <tt>TextIO.stdOut</tt>.  On the other hand, the
   val asm = AsmStream.withStream mystream makeStream []
binds the output of asm to <tt>mystream</tt>.

<h3> More Details </h3>

Assemblers are automatically generated by the 
<a href="../MD++/md.html"> MDGen </a> tool.  Some specific generated
assemblers are listed below:
 <li> <a href="../sparc/emit/sparcAsm.sml" target=code> Sparc </a>
 <li> <a href="../hppa/emit/hppaAsm.sml" target=code> Hppa </a>
 <li> <a href="../alpha/emit/alphaAsm.sml" target=code> Alpha </a>
 <li> <a href="../ppc/emit/ppcAsm.sml" target=code> Power PC </a>
 <li> <a href="../x86/emit/x86Asm.sml" target=code> X86 </a>
