.286p            Enable Protected Mode 80286 Instructions      MASM Directive

.286p

Enables assembly of 80286 protected mode instructions, as well as
8086, 80186, and 80286 non-protected mode (real mode) instructions.

Notes:     This directive should only be used for programs which
will only run in the protected mode of the 80286.

Place all Instruction set directives at the beginning of
the source file to insure that all instructions in the
file are assembled using the same microprocessor
instruction set.

See .286c for a directive which will generate code for
the real mode only of the 80286.
