Hello

I am a beginner of studying assembly language.
I want to force it but I don't know how. What first step I must do for beginning? There are Numbering Systems, Boolean Algebra, System Organization, etc. What subject should I begin at ?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yous sincerely

Victor.

    I have a Nasm environment set up in a .zip file.
    It should cover most beginners questions.
    You should be able to create a blank template & assemble it
    with in a few minutes. There is a help section & it's FREE.

    If you have any problems:
    bitdog@worldnet.att.net
    I could use some feed back on it.
    What was hard to understand, what didn't work, etc.

    Hello Victor,

    Another place to look is the Art of Assembly online book. This book teaches you a lot about numbering systems, boolean algebra, DOS and BIOS interrupts, and much more. A good reference. You should also grab the Intel Pentium 4 programming manuals.

    - Well, it is shareware (some things aren't available in demo version),
    but it surely worth looking at:

    http://www.programmersheaven.com/search/download.asp?FileID=20562

    It is both assembler and microprocessor emulator,
    with lots of step by step tutorials...

    Could not agree more with asmosprog!
    A good foundation is necessary for learning assembly language.

    Therefore, before getting down to programming, just learn more about computer hardware in general, then when you think you are ready, write some REALLY basic code. An excellent tutorial to start with, as asmosprog said, is the Art of Assembly.

    Hands on learning, or hands off learning ? Which is best?
    If the subject is closed let me know? I'll edit this message, BUT
    I took an assembly book on vacation where there was no computer
    available, I studied and when I got my hands on a computer in
    2 months I was unable to write anything and had to unlearn
    mis information.
    Once I got HANDS ON, things started falling into place.
    Then, once I got well commented code snipits that worked
    it really helped a lot, and I could see the big picture,
    a thousand words couldn't paint in my mind.
    Referance manuals, prewritten working code, & hands on, works for me.
    Is there a better way ? What works for you ?

    I tried the intel links and they were 4 meg pdf files.
    My 56k modem took about an hour to download,
    then forced me to be in windows to view them while I worked.
    Windows is like working off a ram disk,
    when you test your executable and it locks,
    you loose your source code held in volitile memory.
    So I couldn't get the .pdf files to be usefull to me in DOS
    Are there any INTEL ASCII .TXT file P4 instruction referance.
    I could only find old ones for .286 type cause Win came out &
    every manual was converted to something other than .TXT
    I suspose there out there, but after hours of searching/clicking
    in websites, in a win,in a win, in a win, in a win, in a win,
    I just give up.

    Hello,

    I have searched everywhere for Intel manuals in ASCII format (mainly because of the size of .PDF files because I only kave a 28K connection since I moved to the country :(.) but could only find 80386 and before. Google has a sort of PDF to HTML converter but I find it produces pretty large results anyway. Below is a link to a list of HTML converters. In the list there are 2 PDF to HTML converters. I have not used these programs before so I am not sure about the quality.

    I suggest you to learn addressing and Interupt first. For the mnemonic I suggest you to learn, Mov, Add, Sub, Mul, Div, Push, Pop and Interupt. The other is Easy to learn if you have mastering it.
