but i've seen the code that tries to parse 16-bit instructions there.
i'm not sure, but i think so (need to look at my LuaJIT copy to clear
it out %-). anyway i've fixed it for 16 bits (yes, I need it... but i've
translated your asm to my "klass system", so i can't send you a simple
diff; anyway i can send you my actual code -- it's 99.9% yours anyway
and it's easy to follow -- tnx again; the code is mixed with fast
"length disassembler" though... %-).

hm. i've never used such instructions, so i really can miss it (x86
opcodes is the pain in the ... yes, right there %-).
