as I know it
calling functions from a dos operating system is done using interrupts ...
in windows we use the api ...
what about linux?
( just a question for chatting a little ... nothing important;) )

That's odd that you should ask that since I was looking into that last week. If you go to ( and look under the tutorials section under section 2.1 there's a brief overview of system calls under linux.

Sorry, actually you need to follow the tutorials/Introduction to UNIX assembly programming/2.1
