 AT&T?? I am not sure where you got that. i386 is an Intel
architecture, also used by AMD and a few others. So search the Intel
or AMD websites for manuals on CPUs of the i386 family and you will
find complete descriptions of the language. Mind you, they are big
manuals, with hundreds of pages, good to read before going to sleep!
