If I have a label defined as follows:

sTemp1 db 'Temporary string for writing over'

And I don't need it initialized to anything, is there any way of reserving say 50 bytes? Something similar to:

sTemp1 db*50 ?

The docs talk about the numerical value after the data reservation directive specifies how many bytes to reserve, but it did not list an example, so I don't know how to code that.

Thanks in advance,

...Gomer

Code:
sTemp1 rb 50   ; "rb" means "reserve bytes"
