If you try to copile a jr nz instruction and supply a number rather than a label, it compiles using an absolute address.

for instance,

ld de,cnt
ld (hl),val
loop: inc hl
dec de
ld a,d
or e
jr nz, loop

compile correctly but

ld de,cnt
ld (hl),val
        inc hl
dec de
ld a,d
or e
jr nz, -8

compiles thinking the address to jump to is -215

here is a listing

00c4 11 0c 00 ld de,12 
00c7 36 00 ld (hl),0 
00c9 23 inc hl 
00ca 1b dec de 
00cb 7a ld a,d 
00cc b3 or e  
00cd 20bytes:7: error: relative jump out of range (-215)
 29 jr nz, -8
