View Full Version : Any assembly programmers out there?

11 November 2003, 11:51 PM
Once a very long time ago I used to do alot of assembly programming but have not really touched it all that much in the past few (dozen) years. I have current versions of the MASM and NASM compilers. I know that there a couple others out there as well. Which compiler would you/do you recommend for using for a intel/pentium chipset compiling?

Masm seems fine...even though the latest version is from 1996 or so. I think Intel may have their own compiler.

Most, if not all, assembler compiling is integrated into the main C++ compilers these days so a) C/C++ can be compiled against assembler libraries without hassle and b) coders can just drop in assembler instructions amongst their higher-level code.

IIRC you have to prefix every line with ASM .

Intel compiler for windows platforms (

and for Linux (

Thanks for the replies guys. I have been playing with MASM and will probably stay with it unless someone mentions something better. odubtaig, thats the way I usually run assembly code but this time I need pure unadulterated assembly.
