    Inline Assembly error (invalid operand)??

    I am learning assembly or I should say HLA's version of ASM
    and I am learning TRUE asm with that.
    I am not sure for the syntax of inline asm, but everyway I look at it this should work...

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    	int x;
    	__asm{
    		mov		0, eax
    		add		2, eax
    		mov		eax, x
    	}
    	cout<<x<<endl;
    	return 0;
    }
    could someone tell me why it doesn't work?
    Asking the right question is sometimes more important than knowing the answer.

    I don't know much intel assembly but I do know some. Your destination operand goes on left, source on right.
