Why doesn't this site have assembler, don't any "teenagers" program in asm? well, i guess i just answered that question, cause i program in assembler (ASM32, best assembler in the world for pure assembler @ intelligentfirm.com)

How does a site "have assembler"? Right now, we have a few random links that people have bothered to submit. Please feel free to submit your favorite assemblyer-related links, or write a quick start guide about the topic, etc.

Personally, I've coded in Z80 assembler, and also in the assembly language I created for my virtual machine system.

I used to be a pure assembler fanatic (for lack of a better term ... in fact I wrote an entire banked VESA library in ASM - not an experience I hope to repeat), but with the advent of new compilers and faster processors, I see little need to program in it in these days! Agreeably, assembly still gives programs an extra boost, but realistically, unless you're writing an operating system or a very processor-intensive application, assembly just isn't needed for most applications in today's world, especially if we're just producing amateur products (in TPU that is). That's at least my viewpoint on it.

well, as all high and hopeful new programmers do (well, most anyway), i attempted an operating system :-)) it got to the stage of booting and dislaying a message --- that's about all most people get done. i spent a lot of time researching though. anyway, i've also, like miken, done the whole vesa1.2 banked library thing -- it's was a pain in the backside, but it worked -- then i found allegro :-) assembly is fun....really.
