8.1.2.3 Register Names

General-purpose registers are represented by predefined symbols of the form `GRnnn' (for global registers) or `LRnnn' (for local registers), where nnn represents a number between 0 and 127, written with no leading zeros. The leading letters may be in either upper or lower case; for example, `gr13' and `LR7' are both valid register names.

You may also refer to general-purpose registers by specifying the register number as the result of an expression (prefixed with `%%' to flag the expression as a register number):
 
%%expression
---where expression must be an absolute expression evaluating to a number between 0 and 255. The range [0, 127] refers to global registers, and the range [128, 255] to local registers.
