Opry99er Posted November 19, 2009 Share Posted November 19, 2009 That is the Molesworth "Introduction to Assembly." The one I'm trying to muddle through. It's not great. I have that book too, and I had it when I was trying to learn 9900 assembly in '84. Reading it now I understand what the author was saying, but holy crap, I understand only because of what I now know. Currently the best book (IMO) for learning 9900 assembly from scratch is: Lottrup's Book: Beginner's Guide to Assembly At first I only had the E/A manual, which is a very technical reference manual really, then I had Moleswroth's book which didn't help much either. Once I got Lottrup's book I was actually able to start making programs. The problem, I now realize, with Lottrup's book is that even though it lets you get up and making programs, it does not help much in getting a full understanding of what is really going on. I've been kicking around the idea of writing some in depth tutorials on getting started with 9900 assembly on the 99/4A, I just never had a reason other than for my own satisfaction. If there are actually people out there who might read such a thing, it would be good motivation for me to actually start writing. Matthew I would love some in depth assembly tutorials... you could even do some short video supports for them and post them to YouTube. I will be adding a "tutorial videos" page to my site which will contain my XB tutorials, Marks speech tutorials, and whatever other ones I can find. Hope you go forward with this work... It would be greatly appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
