4.7 Assembly Language Syntax

The examples that follow use the following syntax for assembly language instructions.

(predicate_reg) opcode.modifier Rdest = Rsource1, Rsource2

If the predicate register is omitted, PR0 will be assumed. In addition, a semicolon following an instruction indicates that the stop bit is set for that operation, i.e., that operation is the last one in its MultiOp. The prefix ``!'' for a predicate implies that the opcode actually depends on the logical not of the value of the predicate register.
