I am a programmer for Java and C++... These days I thought that it's time now to read a little about Assembler and already bought a book. Now I see it's just about 386er CPUs and its really LONG and COMPLICATED sourcecode for a little "Hello World"...
Could someone of you please tell me, why nowadays someone would choose to learn Assembler? I mean, I know there is a lot beyond and beneath the Windows-surface... and, how do I write an ASM programme for the MAC, its a lot different? If yes.. because of the RISC-chip I guess. And what about Gameboy and all the Nintendo-stuff? Don't tell me that they make their games with Assembler!
So, it would be really nice, if someone would tell me a little!
