Guide to Assembly Language Programming in Linux Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique guide provides comprehensive coverage of the key elements of Assembly language programming with in-depth coverage of the Linux operating system, which is the fastest-growing operating system with an estimated 18 million Linux users worldwide. The book specifically targets professionals who would like to learn Assembly and intend or expect to move to the Linux operating system. 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. Readers need only have a basic knowledge of any structured, high-level language such as C to obtain the full benefits of this guidebook. Sivarama P. Dandamudi is a professor of computer science at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, as well as associate editor responsible for computer architecture at the International Journal of Computers and Their Applications. He has more than two decades of experience teaching about computer systems and organization. Features and Benefits: • Free NASM assembler provides hands-on assembly language programming experience • Three chapters on computer organization provide the necessary background to program in assembly language • Presentation of material is suitable for self-study, with extensive programming examples and figures • All examples are complete in that they can be assembled and run, giving a better feeling as to how these programs work Key Topics: • Computer organization, including digital logic circuits, memory organization, IA-32 architecture • Installing and using Linux and NASM • Debugging assembly language programs • Overview of assembly language instructions • Writing procedures, addressing modes, conditional execution, logical and bit operations• Advanced assembly language, including string processing, ASCII and BCD arithmetic, recursion, protected-mode interrupt processing, high-level language interface, floating-point operations.

Synopsis:

Introduces Linux concepts to programmers who are familiar with other operating systems such as Windows XP Provides comprehensive coverage of the Pentium assembly language

Synopsis:

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 one threat to Microsoft's Windows in the server market. This unique guidebook provides comprehensive coverage of the key elements of Assembly language 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.
