Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Assembly is a low-level programming language that's one step above a computer's native machine language. Although assembly language is commonly used for writing device drivers, emulators, and video games, many programmers find its somewhat unfriendly syntax intimidating to learn and use.

Since 1996, Randall Hyde's The Art of Assembly Language has provided a comprehensive, plain-English, and patient introduction to 32-bit x86 assembly for non-assembly programmers. Hyde's primary teaching tool, High Level Assembler (or HLA), incorporates many of the features found in high-level languages (like C, C++, and Java) to help you quickly grasp basic assembly concepts. HLA lets you write true low-level code while enjoying the benefits of high-level language programming.

As you read The Art of Assembly Language, you'll learn the low-level theory fundamental to computer science and turn that understanding into real, functional code.

You'll learn how to:

  • Edit, compile, and run an HLA program
  • Declare and use constants, scalar variables, pointers, arrays, structures, unions, and namespaces
  • Translate arithmetic expressions (integer and floating point)
  • Convert high-level control structures

This much anticipated second edition of The Art of Assembly Language has been updated to reflect recent changes to HLA and to support Linux, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD. Whether you're new to programming or you have experience with high-level languages, The Art of Assembly Language, 2nd Edition is your essential guide to learning this complex, low-level language.

Book News Annotation:

This plain-English introduction to 32-bitx86 assembly language is for beginning programmers and non-assembly programmers with high-level language experience. The book's primary teaching tool, High Level Assembler (HLA), incorporates many of the features found in high-level languages to help readers grasp basic assembly concepts, allowing beginning assembly programmers to work with familiar syntax. Coverage includes how to edit, compile, and run HLA programs, how to declare and use constants, scalar variables, and arrays, and how to translate arithmetic expressions. This second edition has been updated to reflect recent changes to HLA and to support Linux, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD. Hyde has taught at the University of California-Riverside.

Synopsis:

Assembly is a low-level programming language, one step above hardware's native machine language. Assembly code is small, fast, and reliable. While assembly is not as popular as a daily programming language as high-level languages like C or Python, it is widely used for writing device drivers, embedded systems, viruses, and for programs that require real-time responses such as flight navigation systems. A working knowledge of assembly is key to successful reverse engineering and hacking of all kinds.
