can anyone suggest books or any other literature that theyve found pretty helpful when they first started prog asm? ive found a couple that look pretty good, and of course the bible art of asm, etc, but if anyone else can make some suggestions it would be cool. thx (:

I've read of book named "Inner loops".
It's about effective imlemetation of algorithms in
asm on xx86 32bit.
I would gladly by the book but in Russia I have no chance - nobody sells it here.

IMHO the topic of the book (middle level realisation and optimization) is the most important, more than any other topics regarding asm.

For win32, there are no up to date books and the ones around are old DOS stuff. The Intel manuals are the best in the business and are free, Iczelion's tutorials are a good starter and you can hunt around and find an old copy of Randy Hyde's Art of Assembler to get a basic feel of using the instructions.

Assembler is very much an area where you must get a feel for how it works so starting off at a low level and playing with instructions is a good place to start. I would not waste you time and money on the current books available, they are no use to you writing the modern stuff.

Regards and good luck.
