Talk:Assembly language

My experience is primarily with IBM 360/370 Assembly Language. It might be noted that we should change the name from Assembler to Assembly Language. An assembler takes assembly language and turns it into machine code. -- I just registered. Mark-roberts 03:41, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Well, I'm thinking I'll proceed from here as follows: Introduction to Assembly Language Assembly Language Basics Flow Control (Comparison and Branch/Jump) Specific Architectures (Possibly their specific operations and any peculiarities, implementations of the same example algorithm in each assembly language. Suggestions on the algorithm in question? Preferably not something overly complex, so as not to lose the forest for the trees.)

  • Virtual Machines
  • IBM 360/370
  • Motorolla
  • Intel x86
  • (etc)

I think the algorithm that I'm going to use will be to generate the first N numbers of the Fibonacci series and stuff them into an array.

def Fibo(num, array):
    x=1
    y=2
    n=0
    while n < num:
        array[n]=x
        n+=1
        array[n]=y
        n+=1
        x+=y
        y+=x
