One significant problem has arisen from all this time working on AT&T emulation: I am now totally used to AT&T assembly syntax, and Intel assembly syntax looks weird to me.

I mean yes, why SHOULDN’T the source come before the destination?

Send help.

@twylo
I very much prefer the AT&T syntax. I have no idea why it gets so much flak. It's much easier to read!

I think I had figured it out WHY it is this way and WHY it's everywhere (AT/T ASM, libc ...) 

@twylo PDP-11, 68000, and SPARC agree with you. To mention a few.
