Why cannot the cross-assembler work on this asm code?

Hi,

I am working on assembler code with arm-linux-gnueabihf-as with a third part code project. I find that the assembler has errors:

arm-linux-gnueabihf-as test_sp0.s

test_sp0.s: Assembler messages:

test_sp0.s:1: Error: junk at end of line, first unrecognized character is `=’

test_sp0.s:3: Error: bad instruction `arm’

test_sp0.s:22: Error: bad instruction `global Variables Accessed’

test_sp0.s:23: Error: bad instruction `none’

It is obvious that the assembler treats the comment char ‘;’ as asm instruction. I used other compiler before, but not arm-linux-gnueabihf-as. From the asm code format, do you think what assembler can work on it? or are there some switches with arm-linux-gnueabihf-as to work on this asm code?

Thanks,
