Sure, why not. It's almost as efficient.
If I had the choice I would
Its for a course I'm taking, and everything has to be done in assembly.
I got questions thats why I posted
hello there, didnt know you were a programmer
Can I PM you and ask you questions a lil later?
didn't know you were either.
x86 or wat?
That fucking dinosaur.
depending on the class/major its good to know how it works. x86 was the most complicated assembly ive seen though. ucf we did motorola hc11 which is pretty basic but you learn whats going on. we had an x86 for about a month on the back of a computer engineering C++ class.
Studying C++ and Assembly at Uni
Yes, of course. I'm just talking silly shit
write it in LOLCODE. Your professor will give you an honorary doctorate.
Write it in CHEF.
no we gotta use C# and visual studio.
so how is x86 more complicated?
It's only the 2nd day of the quarter so we haven't really gotten too deep into anything.
Just showed us basic registers (eax, ebx, ecx...).
And how to do basic arithmetic operations using integers; basic stuff like that.
But we have our first lab assignment due, and I have some questions.
If someone is good at this stuff, PM me please. Thank you
This book saved my ass in my Assembly class.
That's the 4th edition and I think there's now a 5th. That book is all about MASM and my class was all about NASM. However, the concepts were still the same and often the syntax was too. I really liked the author's style but there were times when I still didn't get the concepts but it was much better than the text that I purchased for the class. I recommended this book to other students that came after me and they agreed, it was very good.
Now if you don't want to spend the money on that book, try this FREE BOOK:
I use assembly daily at work... I am developing the next generation of an embeded software product that up until just now has been completely written in assembly. Often I need to consult the old code (backwards compatability etc.) in order to proceed and it is a nightmare. Basically its a 22,000 line asm file with very little organization and finding ANYTHING in it is a 30 minute to 1 hour venture...
It's terrifying and I have no idea how anyone can be productive when their entire project is in one gigantic text file
Use C and use the assembly portion only when needed had a couple of classes that used it and I like to avoid it now.
Thank you Coottie. I'll look into that book.
It's pretty cheap online. I can spend 13 bucks.
The key thing is to learn assembly and then NEVER use it.
I was kidding about the efficiency bit.
I took a MIPS assembly class back in college; I don't really know anything about the x86 instruction set.
