Dood Day, Shriya,

asembler ...


What is Assembly Language

? Lowest-level of programming on a system
? Symbolic forms of representing machine language instructions
? Usually represents a single machine instruction
? Machine dependent

Advantages over high-level language

? Very efficient and tight code can be developed

Disadvantages

? Applications development time is more
? Applications are machine dependent
? Relatively more difficult to learn and understand than a high level Language

Advantages over machine language

? Use of mnemonic operation codes helps remembering the instructions
? Symbols can be used to represent variables and constants
? Macros can be used to generate repeated codes
? Conditional assembly enables tailoring the code generated

Shriya,

I am also learning assembler, with that intention I wanted to start this forum.

to me assembler looks like you can learn on your own, but you need a mentor.

I have some Exercises, which I am practising on my own, but before that
i felt its mandatory to know about the number systems and internal storage.

let me know your id, I can send them to you.

Hi Ram ,

I was attending assembler training probably and year back . I was suggested a Ebook named Principles of Operations which might be available in Redbooks.com . More over it is better to learn Binary operations before u learn the Assembler .

TPf system is very basic programming. In this if u have gone through 8085 or 8086 programming basics then that would really help u a lot coz it starts with basic assembly langauage which is nothing else than the phenemonics coding. So better prepare urself for that and please remember its not exactly like Microprocessor coding.

One more thing u should have to learn the concept of core memory and file memory. How addressing occurs. So clea ur basics and then jump into it coz it will help u a lot.

Enjoy coding
Cheers

Hi Folks !

I could not recommend a book or so, cause I don't need them any more.
And if, i have a look at IBM-Bookmanager.

I only want to boost your idea of learning Assembler.

I'm just now programming in this language (...not only this) for about 30 years and i did'nt regret that at any time. As of my practical experience mostly all the big commercial banks are still programming the mostly high performance and heavy data processes still in assembler. And there are a lot of assembler programmes that will be reengineered in the future. so for such projekts the companies are lookink for people with a profound knowledge in that language. Also there's a elementary need for satisfaction in system-programmming assignment and the networking neighbourhood.

Melancholy i remember the Y2k and the implementation of the EURO.
The hourly rate for assembler cracks had been tremendous. Was a great time. I hope Y2k-Times come back, when all these workarround we had installed are reaching there critical date.

So keep on track, regards, UmeySan

The book Assembler Language Programming for the IBM systems 360 and 370 that was mentioned above does mostly show how to write macros in assembler. To actualy learn all the different operation codes and to see example of how to use each one of them, get the so called PROP manual from IBM (Principles of operation). This is the bible for all main frame assembler programming.
I know, since I have used it for 40 years.

Hi,
I have some suggestions to learn assembler.
1. First learn instructions (instruction length,internal operation) thoroughly for this you can refer ibm book manager or some external material.
2. Addressibilty concepts (includes CSECT and DSECT) refer in ibm book manager
3. Programming concepts (Commonly used Techniques) refer "ADVANCED ASSEMBLER language AND MVS interfaces" by Carmine A. Cannatello.
4. Learn how to write macros and learn commonly used Macros and their uses.
5. Virtual storage concepts and how to access those areas.
