newbie newbie DarkDragonraygoza (Programmer) (OP) 21 Feb 02 00:56 hi i´m begining to learn assembly, and that´s to interesting, can anybody say me where can i find a good compiler in the web to begindark dragon has come RE: newbie AmkG (Programmer) 24 Feb 02 20:48 First off, what platform are you programming for? DOS? Windows? DESQView, if anyone still remembers what in heck that is?By the way it's called an ASSEMBLER not a compiler. Calling an assembler a compiler is like a mild insult.

RE: newbie DarkDragonraygoza (Programmer) (OP) 24 Feb 02 21:36 well first, thanks, for the aclaration, but i was always proggraming in high level languages, and sorry to call it a compiler.next is, i´m thinking to begin in DOS, cause i´ve the idea that in dos learning good, will be more easy the transition to WINDOWS, because i don´t want to enter without knowledege about APIs Etc, of windows, and thats all.thank in advance RE: newbie AmkG (Programmer) 24 Feb 02 23:38 Any version of MASM will do.However, take note that you need a specifically DOS Linker to generate a DOS executable file. Some of the newer versions of masm include a Windows Linker. The MASM you can get from Inczelion's site http://win32asm.cjb.net includes a Windows linker, but you can download a DOS linker from somewhere there, too.Have fun.
