Is there an assembler out there that does pure 32-bit assembler for x86? I've just decided to teach myself assembler (for the hell of it, I suppose :)) and wanted to sort of stay out of the windows-specific MASM32 stuff. Then again, I guess all of the 16-bit assemblers use DOS interrupts, so maybe there ISN'T such a thing as an OS-specific assembler. :)

In any event, any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks for reading. :D

vmfedor,

The problem is you cannot interact with the OS at all without some API code. You can use console mode in MASM32 with no problems and there are console mode library functions that handle the basic screen display much like interrupt DOS code so if you want to do some experimenting in 32 bit code without the interface demands of Windows, this should get you going OK.
