DEFB  Define Constant Byte

This directive inserts a series of byte values into the object code.  The format is:

    DEFB [Exprn],[Exprn],[Exprn],....

The expressions are sequentially evaluated and the byte values generated are stored sequentially in the program object code.  If an expression is null (nothing is written between the commas or before the first comma) then zero is assigned.
