Guide to Assembly Language Programming in Linuxby Sivarama P. Dandamudi
Synopses & Reviews
Processor designs can be broadly divided into CISC (Complex Instruction Set Computers) and RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computers). The dominant processor in the PC market, Pentium, belongs to the CISC category, and Linux is fast becoming the number onethreat to Microsoft's Windows in the server market. This unique guidebook provides comprehensive coverage of the key elementsof Assemblylanguage programming, specifically targeting professionals and students who would like to learn Assembly and intend or expect to move to the Linux operating system. The book instructs users on how to install Linux on existing Windows machines, providing DVDs containing the complete Fedora Core 3 Linux distribution. Readers are introduced to Linux and its commands, and will gain insights into the NASM assembler (installation and usage). This highly useful guidebook comes complete with all the necessary software (Linux, NASM, debugger), making it an extremely valuable resource tool for all those who want to learn Assembly programming and Linux.
