seems to be a difference between AM=M-1 followed by D=M and simply AMD=M-1

This post was updated on .
AM=M-1
D=M

is behaving differently than

AMD=M-1

don't see how they should differ....
this is my popper-maker:

[REDACTED]

if i replace
AM=M-1
D=M

with AMD=M-1

it pops the stack pointer value instead of the value at the address....
Any thoughts?

oh wait  i might get it...  is it because AMD=M-1 assigns A before updating M whereas AM=M-1 puts M at new value before the D=M?  

this stuff is confusing :(

Yes that's correct. (Both your explanation, and that it can be confusing!)
