Assembly code question
This is probably not the place to ask such a question but no other forum
seemed more appropriate...
Does anyone know a good book that teaches assembly programming? I'm not after
a reference as such...more a tutorial.

Probably a little out of date now, but I use to recommend "Assembler Inside
& Out" by Harly Hahn, for Intel/MASM. It deals with 16-bit x86, but 80% of
the material still applies and is necessary for the basics. I am sure a quick
look on Amazon.com will list out quite a few more recent books.

The difficulty with learning Assembly Programming is that the subject material
is extremely broad-band and the same time being hellishly processor specific.
(Don't look for an ANSI/ISO Approved editions.) No single text or tutorial
will even come close to covering everything. Before you are through you will
have a couple of books, 2 or 3 references, Knuth, and 6' of cardboard boxes
full of loose leaf articles and papers. <g>
Another important part is a good Assembler to play with. It is as important
as a good IDE for a higher-language - maybe even more important. There are
several on the web for little money or even free. But a good assembler is
like a boat - you will buy and 'sail' at least 3 before you find the one
