Hi, I''m looking for a good & easy to understand book about assembler. I want to use my code on win32 machines and use the Pentium stuff. Maybe some of the more recent CPU stuff like MMX and 3Dnow might be interesting, too. So can anyone suggest me a beginner book for win 32 asm ? thanks Tim

Well, one very complete (over 1500 pages) although a bit out dated is online at:
http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/Page_asm/ArtOfAsm.html
Nevertheless the basics can still be applied.

Yes, thanks. I already discovered the link.

I''m just a bit stupid and somehow scared by all this material. I also downloaded the 1500 pages Intel PDFs from their site. Looks lie 3000 pages that only teach my how to write DOS ASM code. Is it really that hard ? Can someone give me hint about what I have to read ? On what should I focus ? Which ASM should I use ?

I feel like using my first language ;-) Help !

tcs, I learnt assembly a while ago (.5 years) from a really old book (''92) it was Assembly Language Step by Step, by Jeff Duntemann. It taught me the basics of everything; and I thought it was very well written. Yes, it is dated, but most of the principels stand. Going through that book let me understand asm, so I can no longer be scared by all the material online now.
So I recommend it; I also recommend that you use MASM; it''s a pretty neat assembler for free. Check a gamedev.net link about win32 assembly.

Happy ''ssembling.

Well i dont know any asm but i''ld thought i''ld throw this in anyway - this is the website of a guy who writes win32 programs in assembler, he offers some kind of "start-off" kit for win32 assembler newbies:
