Does that help I am trying to understand the assembly output of a simple c++ program. This is my C++ program. , Well, here it is line by line...
code :

                                   # from outside (e.g. from your main routine)

this will help int 80 is a mechanism in some*a UNIX-like operating systems for making system calls.
For these calls, the registers are used for specific values. From the syscalls file:
code :
0 STD NOHIDE { int nosys(void); } syscall nosys_args int
1 STD NOHIDE { void exit(int rval); } exit rexit_args void
2 STD POSIX  { int fork(void); }
3 STD POSIX  { ssize_t read(int fd, void *buf, size_t nbyte); }
4 STD POSIX  { ssize_t write(int fd, const void *buf, size_t nbyte); }
move edx, len   ; length of message (nbyte).
move ecx, msg   ; message to print (buf).
move ebx, 1     ; file handle 1, stdout (fd).
move eax, 4     ; write syscall.
int  0x80       ; do it.

move ebx, 0     ; exit code (rval).
move eax, 1     ; exit syscall.
int 0x80        ; do it.

I think the issue was by ths following , Well you are talking about two different things. If you want to see the contents of registers you need to execute the program so you need to make a binary. Targeted at a system, and then single step through it. yes gdb will work if you have the right gdb pointing at the right system. You can also use a jtag debugger, single step and then dump registers.
Little of this has anything to do with assembly language, you will want to see the instructions at an assembly language level when single stepping, sure, but you need to compile to a binary to run it.
code :
int run ( void )
    unsigned int ra;
        printf("-- 0x%08X --\n",reg_norm[15]-3);
        if(execute()) break;
        for(ra=0;ra< 8;ra++) printf("r%u 0x%08X ",ra,reg_norm[ra]); printf("\n");
        for(    ;ra<16;ra++) printf("r%u 0x%08X ",ra,reg_norm[ra]); printf("\n");

this will help "Howdy, Stranger" as they say in the movies...
As you realize, you need more code. First thing to learn is to exit cleanly - the CPU doesn't know when you're done. Depends on what OS. "ExitProcess", probably - usually it's Windoze when they don't say. :)

this one helps. I want to make sure I am understanding what my code is actually being compiled down to before an exe/library is made from it. I have the following program written in C++98. Which stems from this website http://www.phpcompiler.org/articles/virtualinheritance.html .
code :
    .cfi_startproc                                        ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;                      
    pushq   %rbp                                          ; LFB6 Associated with the adress for the class left constructor 
    .cfi_def_cfa_offset 16                                ;
    .cfi_offset 6, -16                                    ; %rdi, -8(%rbp) - his doesn't initialize anything - it is just pushing this value on local stack, in optimized version it will probably dissapear. 
    movq    %rsp, %rbp                                    ; %rsi, -16(%rbp) - just as above;
    .cfi_def_cfa_register 6                               ; %rsi - pointer to virtual table table (not a mistake it's vtt, not vt) for left-in-bottom
    movq    %rdi, -8(%rbp)                                ;  %rdi - pointer to left instance
