hey, why did you not make a rol,ror,rcr and rcl instruction video? :(

Umair Hussain says:

watched all your, SHL,SHR,SAL & SAR tuts, thank you
and you could also add the ROL,ROR,RCR & RCL instructions video :)

Just a detail I want to add about SHL and all the similar shift operations like SHR, ROL, ROR… it can only take the value 1 or the CL register as second operand, at 5:40, you can see that the assembler corrected “shl ax, 2” into 2 lines of “shl ax, 1”, with some others developpement environements, it can prevent the program from assembling with an invalid inscruction operand because there is no x86 opcode for a shift with immediate value other than 1, so that’s good to know.
If you face that problem, just add the instruction several times or use the CL register.

In what case would the SHL instruction be useful?
