Kinds of Move Addressing
There are several addressing styles that are used with move instructions:
Constants or immediate values are specified with a $. x86 allows even very large integer constants.
movl $0,%eax # 0 -> %eax
Stack Variables have negative offsets relative to %rbp. The offset is the offset from the symbol table minus the stack frame size.
movl %eax,-32(%rbp) # %eax -> iIn this case, i has an offset of 16 and the stack frame size is 48.
Literals have offsets relative to %rip.
movsd .LC5(%rip),%xmm0 # 0.0625 -> %xmm0
Record References have offsets relative to a register containing a pointer to the record.
movl %eax,32(%rcx) # ^.
