I have an asm program made with intel syntax. In this program, I am using this syntax jz $+1 from INTEL (+gcc), that means that I jump into the jz instruction (which is 2 bytes). I jump 1 byte further the current instruction. I am trying to find what is the correct syntax to do the same thing in GAS AT&T syntax, but I can't find the information. Does anyone know that?

This is not really an RE question, but I think . is used to refer to current location in many GAS architectures.


you can use intel syntax if you prefer in gas and use $+1 to jump into the middle of the instruction

$ cat foo.s

.intel_syntax noprefix
.global start
        jz $+1
        .byte 0x25,0x45,0x33,0x40,0x00


$ as -o foo.o foo.s


$ objdump.exe -d foo.o
foo.o:     file format pe-x86-64
Disassembly of section .text:
0000000000000000 <_start>:
   0:   74 ff                   je     1 <_start+0x1>
   2:   25 45 33 40 00          and    $0x403345,%eax
   7:   90                      nop
   8:   90                      nop


$ ld -m i386pep -o foo foo.o
