Page 89 of the "Microsoft Macro Assembler 5.0: Programmer's Guide" and page 89 of the "Microsoft Macro Assembler 5.1: Programmer's Guide" incorrectly state that:

"Name will be ignored if given with small or compact models."

With .MODEL small or .MODEL compact, the name for code segments is not ignored, but does produce the following error:

A2063: Operand Combination Illegal

Sample Code

; Assemble options needed: none

.MODEL small

.CODE home
    mov ax, 4C00h
    int 21h
END start:
