ST8 REGISTER SET 

The following is a list of the ST8 registers used by ASST8:  

        a       -       8-bit accumulator
        xl,yl   -       LSB of index registers
        xh,yh   -       MSB of index registers
        x,y     -       16-Bit index registers
        sp      -       16-bit stack pointer
        cc      -       8-bit condition code register


ST8 INSTRUCTION SET 


     The following list specifies the format for each addressing
mode supported by ASST8:  

        reg             register addressing
                        (a,x,xl,xh,y,yl,yh,sp,cc)

        #data           immediate data

        *saddr          8-bit zero page addressing
                        0x00 <= saddr <= 0xFF

        laddr           16-bit addressing
                        0x0000 <= laddr <= 0xFFFF

                        (eofst,r).e points to a
                        24-bit address

                        Instructions supporting

                        use the appropriate form

        label           pc-relative branch addressing



The  terms data, saddr, laddr, eaddr, addr, sofst, lofst, eofst,
ofst, and label may all be expressions.  

     Note that not all addressing modes are valid with every in-
struction, refer to the ST8 technical data for valid modes.  
The  following  tables  list all ST8 mnemonics recognized by the
ASST8 assembler.  The designation [] refers to  a  required  ad-
dressing mode argument.
