Thanks the response David , but I was looking for a more inclusive list.  For
example some assembler I have written for the IBM PPC 405 has icbst, mtdcr
and quite a few other 4xx only operations.  Obviously the as has this
information when passed 'mcpu=405'.  I was just hoping I could find a single
source of documentation containing the superset of all IBM
(POWER(2),4xx,6xx,7xx(x), PPC64) and Motorola (8xx(x), 7xx, G3/G4).  Also
book E based processors are in development which will soon only complicate
this matter more for anyone who is not  a PPC assembler expert.

Would be nice if was updated
to include a PPC section.  It currently is dated Jan '94.
