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 begin

dark dragon has come

RE: newbie

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

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

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.
