    I'm really tired and only spent 5 minutes on this... but I think I didn't make any terrible errors...

    ; assuming SI is already set to point to InputBuffer....
    cmp al,13 ; search for end of string
    jne findEnd
    mov di,si
    mov si,offset InputBuffer
    push di ; location of string terminator
    dec di ; minus 1 == last byte of string
    mov al,[si]
    mov ah,[di]
    mov [di],al
    mov [si],ah
    inc si
    dec di
    cmp si,di
    jb swapLoop
    pop di
    mov [di],'$' ; change CR to '$' for printing
    mov dx,offset InputBuffer
    mov ah,9
    int 21h
    I hope this isn't homework... at least the post is really old...
