	Thanks for the reply. I had passed over this as only for inline asm.
When I tried this with a C file it did not work, I got assembler errors
complaining that 
	movb %al,-5(%ebp)

etc., were not valid 16 bit base/index expressions (accessing a local).
Did I miss something else? 
This line was generated to store a byte into a local unsigned char, so I
don't think its a case of needing to rewrite my example (ie. I'm not
using long's).
