Assembly Language Step-by-step: Programming with DOS and by Jeff Duntemann

By Jeff Duntemann

The bestselling consultant to meeting language-now up-to-date and elevated to incorporate insurance of Linux

This re-creation of the bestselling consultant to meeting programming now covers DOS and Linux! the second one version starts with a hugely obtainable review of the interior operations of the Intel-based laptop and systematically covers the entire steps concerned about writing, checking out, and debugging meeting programs.

specialist writer Jeff Duntemann then provides case in point courses for either the DOS and Linux working platforms utilizing the preferred unfastened assembler NASM. He additionally contains priceless info on the way to use methods and macros, plus infrequent motives of assembly-level coding for Linux, all of which mix to supply a complete examine the complexities of meeting programming for Intel processors.

giving you the basis to create executable meeting language courses, this book:
* Explains tips to use NASM-IDE, an easy application editor and assembly-oriented improvement environment
* information the main used components of the 86-family guide set
* Teaches approximately DEBUG, the only most valuable instrument you will have as an meeting language programmer
* Examines the operations that desktop directions strength the CPU to perform
* Discusses the method of reminiscence addressing
* Covers coding for Linux

Functional Programming Patterns in Scala and Clojure: Write Lean Programs for the JVM

Resolve real-life programming issues of a fragment of the code that natural object-oriented programming calls for. Use Scala and Clojure to resolve in-depth issues of units of styles: object-oriented styles that develop into extra concise with practical programming, and natively practical styles.

Programming Smalltalk – Object-Orientation from the Beginning: An introduction to the principles of programming

An easy, step by step advent to transparent and chic object-oriented programming. utilizing a language that's excellent for this sort of programming, the ebook has been validated in several classes and workshops over ten years.

Programming Smalltalk is very fitted to readers without previous programming wisdom. ranging from the 1st rules of programming, it teaches you the way to exploit and create algorithms (reusable principles for problem-solving) and the fundamental construction blocks of software program. It is going directly to clarify easy methods to improve whole functions and has an entire bankruptcy on internet purposes in addition to case studies.

Now translated into English, this variation used to be thoroughly revised to be in step with the newest model of Cincom® VisualWorks®, a certified Smalltalk atmosphere. All examples have been created utilizing VisualWorks, that is to be had for free for tutorial reasons, and will be downloaded and put in on any updated machine.

Example text

Now, 4 is a power of 2, but there is no 4 hiding within 2, so we put a 0 to the right of the 1. The next smallest power of 2 is 2, and there is a 2 in 2. Jot down another 1 to the right of the 0. Two from 2 is 0, so there are no 1s left in the number. Jot down a final 0 to the right of the rest to represent the 1s column. What you have is this: 1 0 1 0 Look back at the binary equivalent of 218: 11011010. The last four digits are 1010—the binary equivalent of 0AH. The same will work for the upper half of DAH.

Two bytes side by side are called a word, and two words side by side are called a double word. A quad word, as you might imagine, consists of two double words, for four words or eight bytes in all. Going in the other direction, some people refer to a group of four bits as a nybble-a nybble being somewhat smaller than a byte. Here's the quick tour: A bit is a single binary digit, 0 or 1. A byte is 8 bits side by side. A word is 2 bytes side by side. A double word is 2 words side by side. A quad word is 2 double words side by side.

Chips always increase in capacity by a factor of 4 simply because the current-generation chip is divided into 4 equal areas, onto each of which is then placed the same number of transistors that the previous generation of chip had held over the whole silicon chip. By 1990, the 256K chip was history, and the 1 megabit chip was state of the art. ) By 1992, the 4 megabit chip had taken over. The critter had a grand total of 4,194,304 bits in its tummy, still no larger than that stick of cinnamon gum.
