The task of assembly is to convert the target tree produced by the code generator into the target code required by the compiler specification. This target code may be a sequence of bit patterns to be interpreted by the control unit of the target machine, or it may be text subject to further processing by a link editor or loader. In either case, the assembler must determine operand addresses and resolve any issues left open by the code generator.
