Overview

Professional Assembly Language / Edition 1

  • Unlike high-level languages such as Java and C++, assemblylanguage is much closer to the machine code that actually runscomputers; it's used to create programs or modules that are veryfast and efficient, as well as in hacking exploits and reverseengineering
  • Covering assembly language in the Pentium microprocessorenvironment, this code-intensive guide shows programmers how tocreate stand-alone assembly language programs as well as how toincorporate assembly language libraries or routines into existinghigh-level applications
  • Demonstrates how to manipulate data, incorporate advancedfunctions and libraries, and maximize application performance
  • Examples use C as a high-level language, Linux as thedevelopment environment, and GNU tools for assembling, compiling,linking, and debugging

About the Author

Richard Blum has worked for a large U.S. governmentorganization for more than 15 years. During that time, he has hadthe opportunity to program utilities in various programminglanguages: C, C++, Java, and Microsoft VB.NET and C#. With thisexperience, Rich has often found the benefit of reviewing assemblylanguage code generated by compilers and utilizing assemblylanguage routines to speed up higher-level language programs.
Rich has a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineeringfrom Purdue University, where he worked on many assembly languageprojects. (Of course, this was back in the eight-bit processordays.) He also has a master of science degree in management fromPurdue University, specializing in Management Information Systems.
