9780130879400: Linux Assembly Language Programming (Prentice Hall Open Source Technology)

Master x86 assembly language from the Linux point of view! Assembly language lies at the boundary between hardware and software. While it can be described purely in terms of how it controls hardware, many of its features only make sense in the context of operating systems and programming languages. In Linux Assembly Language Programming, Bob Neveln explains all the key features of x86 assembly language in the context of the Linux operating system and the C language. The book's step-by-step, one-concept-at-a-time coverage is designed to help experienced hardware programmers move to Linux, and learn how to create Linux device drivers. As developers learn new x86 assembly language skills, they also gain "under the hood" insight into how Linux works -- and into the way processor and software design impact each other. For C programmers who want to understand more about the interactions between Linux and hardware; and for assembler programmers who want to apply their skills in the Linux environment.
