I've been a developer since 2009 and I've learnt a lot of languages since, but I've always wanted to understand and be able to code in the lowest level language so I can directly (or at least very ...
At university we had to implement our own program counter in microcode and I doubt that it's possible to do computer programming at a lower level. Then we wrote the interrupt handler in assembly for ...
Pretty much my only question is the title. Other then that I want to see the code behind small EXEs but I know it's hard to get it to convert to something like c or c++ so why not get assembly.
In my childhood I used to program on an MK-61 Soviet calculator. It had four operating registers (X, Y, Z, T) and 15 storage registers. A program could have 105 steps. As I recall it, it had commands ...
I'm curious about the birth of the compiler. How did programming begin? Did people first build hardware that recognized a certain set of commands, or did people define a language and then build ...
Real programmers can write assembly code in any language. (Larry Wall). As far as I can make out, Mr. Larry Wall is trying to say that to a real programmer any language can have the same ...
I always wonder this, and perhaps I need a good history lesson on programming languages. But since most compilers nowadays are made in C, how were the very first compilers made (AKA before C) or were ...
How good of an idea do you think it would be to teach people Assembly (some variant) as a first programming language? It would take a lot more effort than learning for instance Java or Python, but one ...
In the answer for one question someone wrote that assembly is not a language, it's a process. I tend to agree, since the assembly "language" is dependent on the architecture it will run on, which may ...
