MOV - Move Byte or Word
 
        Usage:  MOV     dest,src
        Modifies flags: None

        Copies byte or word from the source operand to the destination
        operand.  If the destination is SS interrupts are disabled except
        on early buggy 808x CPUs.  Some CPUs disable interrupts if the
        destination is any of the segment registers

        - when the 386 special registers are used all operands are 32 bits

                MOVSW
                MOVSD  (386+)
        Modifies flags: None

        Copies data from addressed by DS:SI (even if operands are given) to
        the location ES:DI destination and updates SI and DI based on the
        size of the operand or instruction used.  SI and DI are incremented
        when the Direction Flag is cleared and decremented when the Direction
        Flag is Set.  Use with REP prefixes.

MOVSX - Move with Sign Extend (386+)

        Copies the value of the source operand to the destination register
        with the sign extended.

MUL - Unsigned Multiply
 
        Usage:  MUL     src
        Modifies flags: CF OF (AF,PF,SF,ZF undefined)

        Unsigned multiply of the accumulator by the source.  If "src" is
        a byte value, then AL is used as the other multiplicand and the
        result is placed in AX.  If "src" is a word value, then AX is
        multiplied by "src" and DX:AX receives the result.  If "src" is
        a double word value, then EAX is multiplied by "src" and EDX:EAX
        receives the result.  The 386+ uses an early out algorithm which
        makes multiplying any size value in EAX as fast as in the 8 or 16
        bit registers.
