9780134519647: I. B. M. Personal Computer Assembly Language and Programming

Covering all features and architecture needed for assembly language programming for the IBM PC and compatible microcomputers, the new edition of this text offers a step-by-step introduction to microcomputers, machine language and assembly language. Using a hands-on approach, the text will help students to understand the hardware of their personal computer, the hexadecimal format, the steps involved in assembly, link and execute, and screen handling, disk processing, program and macro writing, linking to subprograms, resident programs and interrupts. The book features IBM PC/2 series, 80386 and 80486 to provide insight into their architecture and key instructions, and discusses the use of assembler translator programs such as the Microsoft MASM assembler, Borland turbo assembler and simplified segment directives. It also provides detailed explanations of program overlays, DOS memory management and keyboard interrupt and buffer, and contains appendices describing DEBUG commands and keyboard scan codes.
