Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming shows the fundamentals of x86 assembly language programming. It focuses on the aspects of the x86 instruction set that are most relevant to application software development. The book's structure and sample code are designed to help the reader quickly understand more » x86 assembly language programming and the computational capabilities of the x86 platform.
The primary audience for the book is Windows software developers since the sample code will be created using Visual C++ and Microsoft Macro Assembler. Developers targeting non- Windows platforms, however, also can learn from the book since most of the content will be organized and communicated independent of any specific operating system. In order to understand the book's subject material, a background that includes some programming experience using C or C++ will be helpful. Experience with or knowledge of a particular Windows API will not be a prerequisite to benefit from the book. « less

From I/O Ports to Process Management
In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what more » order. It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn't kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks.
The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. « less
