Win32 assembler art of I think.

Chapter 2.9.5.:

The following simple example demonstrates one use for the REPEAT..UNTIL statement:

mov( 10, ecx );
repeat
   stdout.put( "ecx = ", ecx, nl );
   sub( 1, ecx );
until( ecx = 0 );

The non-HLA version of AoA is in the recommended reading para of my tips, tricks & traps.

Good to know, I thought there was only the HLA one, which is a no no.

BTW, "Modern x86 Assembly Language Programming" by Daniel Kusswurm arrived here yesterday. Looks like a nice one too.

Forum's biggest mistake so far:

There's no book on Masm32 yet.... so bare with Irvine

But there's a quite good tutorial dealing with FPU instructions:

You will do far better with the work by Daniel Kusswurm. It is up to date and well written. Treat the old stuff like the plague, its technology is out of date and will fill your head with clapped out old technology.

I actually bought it after your recommendation somewhere here in the forum.

I don't know which one you had. Mine was the very basic one with 16kb of total memory but fortunately had the expansion to 64 kb. WOW!

That effectively allowed me to extract square roots with a precision of up to 10,000 decimals after a challenge from my son whose friend was trying to write a program to get square roots with a 30-decimal precision. :icon_cool:

The Kusswurm book is certainly a good choice if one can afford it. If not, the non-HLA version of AoA is really not bad, and it's free. And Ray's tutorial for the FPU is free and excellent.
