Official Assembly Language Thread. - SpookyZalost - November 16th, 2020

Because we talk about so many languages on here... why not one about one of my favorite languages, assembly, the bottom level language that machines use (well one step above 1/0 but still...).

when you master assembly you master any machine, without plugins, or compatibility libraries, or anything.

it's directly communicating with hardware and it works insanely fast.

So what experiences have you guys had with ASM code?

Yeah people can make animations and generate graphics (without using external files) using only raw ASM/bytecode. Browse and try stuff yourself (as well as try to modify stuff yourself) and you'll learn a ton not just about architecture-specific hacks (i.e. overwriting screen buffer by dividing by 0) but also about how they can make a few instructions take up less space in .text

Hah, it looks delightfully retro.
