bwl accepts one of the three values b, l, or w depending on the data type for which the function is defined. type specifies the corresponding C data type. The macro is called as follows to define char operations or byte operations:


After processing by the pre-processor, the C file contains the following code (extra line breaks have been added to improve readability):

static inline void outb_local(unsigned char value, int port) { _ _asm_ _volatile_("out" "b" " %" "b" "0, %w1"
