well the AT&T style of asm i think is documented in the SYSV ABI
docs. this is a rather large wall of documents that specify what
binary files should look like and how they should behave and how your
binaries should be handled in order to have a compliant System V
machine. getting a copy of them is easy, but can be expensive. there
is some 40-50 odd books from memory ranging from approximately 20
pages to a couple of hundered depending on the manual. i think the
solaris standard docos might have a subset of that information in its
assembly language reference guide (there is a sparc one and a x86 one,
and i think if you really look hard you might find a PPC one). the
SVR4 ABI documentation covers way more platforms.
p.s. the solaris documentation can be bought from Sun Microsystems,
and the SVR4 ABI can be bought from AT&T and/or SCO. a few possible
incomplete copies of the solaris documentation are in the resource
centre on level 9, but you cant take them away...
