I want to learn x86 assembly.
I started looking into a book called Linux Assembly Language
Programming by Bob Neveln.
The first few pages speak of MASM , TASM, NASM, GNU as , intel synatx
and At&T synatx. The books says some good points about Nasm and its
syntax matching that of Intel's.It considered AT&T syntax obscure and
difficult to understand.
But my interest in the Linux kernel tells me there is AT&T assembly in
the kernel and not Intel's syntax. So i am more interested in learning
assembly using AT&T synatx.
At the same time i am really now confused if i should follow AT&T
syntax of intel's one?
Nasm or Gas?
I do not want to waste time on gas just to realise NASM was a better
Do you people have any advice to someone like me who is a C programmer
but not an asm programmer?
Which way should i follow?
AT&T or Intel syntax, keeping in mind i 'll be reading the Linux
Are there any good books i can follow which will help me in building a
solid foundation of assembly?
