Omission in docs
« on: November 23, 2016, 02:17:42 AM »
I have requested to set up a bugzilla account, but have not yet received an email, so posting here so I don't forget what I wanted to report :)

I have been doing some research for my CPUID code, and when looking to see if a very poorly documented instruction for C&T Super386 chips is supported (it isn't, and is so obscure I don't expect it to be added) I noticed the SETcc instructions are not listed in the latest docs. Probably not a big issue, but should be easy enough for someone to add (I'm resisting getting back on the team for a while as I am so busy).

Hi Debs,

As you know, the Nasm Manual no longer includes an instruction set reference. When we did have an instruction set reference, we did have SETcc:

... this may not be what you're talking about...

Best,
Frank

The current version has a list of instructions, SETcc is not included in that list. I have the old docs from 0.98 with descriptions, it's easier than cross referencing multiple manuals and datasheets :)

When I set up my new website next year I will be creating a nasm compatible instruction reference.

You're right, of course, that SETcc is not in the current "list". I have no idea why not.

Looking foreward to your new website!

Best,
Frank
