i come from a c/c++ and VB background and am interested in assembly.

ive downloaded a lot of information on 80x86 and have a pretty good grounding of the individual commands.

however i would like to see how the assembly mnemonics convert to form the binary, (and ultimately learn how an EXE is formed (ie, the DOS stub the PE header, offsets to string tables or whatever) and how the EXE is interpreted when "double clicked" (especially interested in how dynamic DLL loading works)

ive downloaded a evaluation copy of W32dsm (version 8.7) but for some reason all the dissasembly code is written in wingdings font (the envelopes and hands etc)

can anyone recomend a fully functional demo dissasembler or a freeware dissasembler?

RE: disassembler

Its been many years since I've used it but A86/D86 from Eric Isaacs was very good and eary to use.

From memory the licence agreement says that you can't use A86 for commercial development unless you buy it.


Hope this helps.

RE: disassembler

thanks, will take a look at it later
