    Question Start Assembly

    Hi, there

    I'm new to ASM and want to start learning of ASM.
    what's advantage of 32bit compare to 16bit?
    should i start from 16bit ASM or jump to start from 32bit instead?
    if i start from 16bit is it easy to learn 32bit?
    Is learning of 16bit waste my time?
    If i create 16bit program, can this program run on 32bit computer?

    Thanks for advance

    Just learn 32-bit. The syntax is the same (well, depends on your assembler, but mostly the same) and you will need to learn the 16-bit instructions for working with 16-bit data anyway. So it's basically no harder, just different instructions.

    Hi naruponk,

    I started learning Win32 assembly in 2003. It's a hobby.

    If you are interested in learning Win32 assembly using NASM or RosAsm, you can find some free resources here:

    I personally can't see the point of using ASM in windows. It would be more logical (imho) to code the whole thing in C++ and use inline ASm when required.

    I'm only doing 16 bit ASM at the moment, I'm finding this more useful because it is much more similar to what other architectures are like. Meaning that your skills are more easily transferrable to other things like firmware or hardware programming.

    hmmmm i can see the point of programming asm in windows (drivers )- but for normal app dev it is indeed more useful as inline asm in c or something
