Starting from the ground up

Starting from the ground up

Starting from the ground up

Hi All.

I have been searching for tutorials on learning assembly, and they are detailed; actually too detailed, nothing that goes back to the beginning of how to do the basics at first.

I just downloaded Masm32 and that program comes with one really nice editor.  The examples that are included are on exes, dlls, objs, rc, res, etc, and many more and mostly go through gui's and calls to them.  I didn't see a chapter on what a register, hex, or binary numbers mean.  I'm not even actually clear on what a stack and a heap is?

If anyone would know of any links for an absolute beginner that would be great.
Thanks for your time.


RE: Starting from the ground up


Try reading the Art of Assembly Language from http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/
I prefer the 16 bit edition, because I started a long time ago, but these days maybe the 32 bit edition may be better for beginners. Anyway, they are both there, enjoy.

Thanks Wody for the site link.  I have downloaded the text tutorial, but haven't had chance to view it yet.  This will definitly keep me up for a while

Thanks for your time.

Another very good, very basic assembly book is Jeff Duntemann's "Assembly Language Step-by-Step", published by  Wiley.
