I have been reading up on the internet about coding with assembly and now I need to know a little about the compilers and stuff. I have MSVC++5.0 right now and ill probally get 6.0 sometime soon. This is supposed to do inline assembly but I think I remember hearing how it wasn''t the greatest. MASM, I''ve heard very little about, like price and interface and stuff. If you got any info on assembly or assembly compilers, I need it Oh yeah, any know of a good book on assembly? (Read almost all of Andre''s but he don''t do assembly books)

You should check Iczelion''s Win32 Assembly Lanuage Page
http://members.xoom.com/_XMCM/winasm/index.html

There you can find Win32 assembly language tutorials and links to examples and tools (including masm) for assembly language programming.

What I heard is that the compiler will decide wheather to include inline asm code, as an inline function or to make it into a function of its own. However usually you can trust it especially in the newer compilers (The guy who said this did tests on MSVC++ 6, not sure about 5..)
See ya,

Here''s a pretty neat assembler. Really easy to start with. If you don''t want to buy it, it comes in a crippled shareware version, but for learning it has everything you need. Really neat assembly, you really should look into this one.

Also, here''s a whole online book on learning 8086 assembly, if you don''t want to fork over the money for a textbook. It''s pretty good, but it''s downfall I see is that, for a beginner''s book, it''s very in-depth to start. Anyway, here''s the link. http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/Page_asm/ArtofAssembly/ArtofAsm.html

Great, those sites had a lot of info and Im still going through it

BTW whats the difference between using inline code and compiling it seperately and importing (think thats how it works).

Hey CyberBen, I''ve also heard that the inline coding runs slower and takes up more space. Not too sure about this because I dont remember where i saw it
