Book Description

26 Jun 2000 0471375233 978-0471375234 2nd Edition
The bestselling guide to assembly language–now updated and expanded to include coverage of Linux

This new edition of the bestselling guide to assembly programming now covers DOS and Linux! The Second Edition begins with a highly accessible overview of the internal operations of the Intel–based PC and systematically covers all the steps involved in writing, testing, and debugging assembly programs.

Expert author Jeff Duntemann then presents working example programs for both the DOS and Linux operating systems using the popular free assembler NASM. He also includes valuable information on how to use procedures and macros, plus rare explanations of assembly–level coding for Linux, all of which combine to offer a comprehensive look at the complexities of assembly programming for Intel processors.

Providing you with the foundation to create executable assembly language programs, this book:
∗ Explains how to use NASM–IDE, a simple program editor and assembly–oriented development environment
∗ Details the most used elements of the 86–family instruction set
∗ Teaches about DEBUG, the single most useful tool you have as an assembly language programmer
∗ Examines the operations that machine instructions force the CPU to perform
∗ Discusses the process of memory addressing
∗ Covers coding for Linux

The CD–ROM includes:
∗ Net–Wide Assembler (NASM) for both DOS and Linux
∗ NASM–IDE, a command shell and code editor for DOS
∗ ALINK, a free linker for DOS programming
∗ All program code examples from the book

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 2 Aug 2002
By Pete
Format:Paperback
Jeffrey Duntemann takes on the unusual task of teaching assembly language to those who have never even programmed before. As a programmer with a couple of years experience in Basic and other High Level Languages, I found this book very easy to understand. I think those with no programming experience will also find this book useful but may need to concentrate a little more.
The errors in the book are quite annoying at times but he has published a full list [on the web].
My main(and probably only) criticism about this book though, is the lack of actual Assembly programming in it. He teaches very well the concepts involved, instructions etc but there are very few actual examples or exercises in programming. Because of this I recommend both 'Art of Assembly' by Randy Hyde which you can download free in pdf/html, and 'An Introduction to Assembly Language and Computer Architecture' by Joe Carthy(i found this at my local library,now out of print i think). With these two books as well as plenty of practice, anyone can soon consider themselves an Assembly Language programmer.
Though with this book alone, one quickly realizes that Assembly is not so much something to be afraid of, yet very simple. One also finds themselves understanding how computers and programs work in general. But the best part of all is being able to scare C programmers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable guide as far as it goes. 17 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Continual reference to a non-existent ASCII table in Appendix D is annoying, and shows a lack of attention to detail on the part of the author and/or the publisher.
The chapter on the IDE is a waste because the supplied software is defective.
Duntemann's explanation of addressing is good.
The book provides a good introduction to assembler - the title may say step-by-step but it takes you only half way up the staircase.

This book was my first attempt in the world of assembly langauge programming and I found it to be non assuming of any previous knowledge in programming and felt it was clear and straight forward at all times. I enjoyed reading the theory as well as the source code examples which both re-enforced the theory and are useful enough to use elsewhere in your code projects.
I thoroughly recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, but too detailed on architecture 10 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I found this book a great help since I was a beginer with assembly language, but If you have any experiance at all only the last few chapters would be of any use. He covers a lot about the basics of assembler. The cover CD is excelent it contains NASM and all the examples used in the book along with some great help libraries.
