Hello
« on: June 17, 2021, 03:22:25 PM »
I used to write x86 assembly for DOS and would like to learn 32-bit/64-bit assembly now.  Hopefully this is the place I can have fun with assembly.

You will have a ton of fun here but you have some work to do. On the bright side, 32 bit asm is a lot cleaner and more powerful than real mode MS-DOS and you are free from segment arithmetic. 64 bit is a lot more complicated and you will need a good grounding in flat memory model from Win32 to safely migrate to 64 bit but you can do a lot of very useful stuff in 32 bit.

Welcome :thumbsup:

why assembly is fastest is because its switch has no (brakes) breaks
:P
only in 16bit assembly you can get away with "Only words" :P
