I am completely new to assembly and am trying to learn it from some book but the book refuses to tell me what text editor I should use. I browsed google a bit and found that there are special editors out there for assembly language but I have no idea which one I should choose. I was hoping someone on here could give me some advice.

OS: Windows7 (32-bit)
Assembler: NASM
Linker: ALINK

Thanks in advance, Kitt3n.

Assembly sources are just ASCII text files, so you can use any editor you like. Notepad would be fine for example.
I would recommend Notepad++, since it has syntax highlighting for .asm files: http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
I would also recommend downloading the hex editor plugin for Notepad++, as viewing/editing hex can be quite useful at times, when playing with assembly: http://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-plugins/files/Hex%20Editor/

In addition to what Scali said, we also have a fine repetoire of IDE's listed right here on the forums:
