If he thinks of a making a book. (We must not put too much work/expectations on him, or he may sucome to thw pressure Wink )
Why not make two versionns, one ebook/pdf/text version thats free,
and one hard copy, pressing books aren't free, so the hard copy should cost the price of production shipping and +15% of the production cost to the author (if one is to pay then paying the author is IMO the moraly correct thing, so that not all of the money goes to the pressing compny).
There is a big difference between a hard copy and a soft copy, and hard copy looks great in a shelf, soft copy takes lesser space Smile

Great idea scientica Cool haven't think of that.....that way we all could get the benefits of the book. And not left Privalov without the extra cash. Very Happy

I think he wants some "intro to (f)asm", along with details about fasm.

I think a such book should be, kinda like the fasm.txt/.pdf, but with some more exaples (of the basics). Some more in depth info about fasm it self. Thus, a combination of the fasm doc, the fasm insternals docs and some more general asm stuff, perhaps some simple introduction to dos/linux/windows programming with some examples (of simple apps, not plain "tech demos") with comments/explanation.
But a such large book, spanning multiple OSes, might be better made with assistance from others (it would be a very big task, and we don't want to kill you with work/expectations, do we? Twisted Evil Wink )

so why not?
to me, offline book more familiar than online book.

and yes! this is very precious moment. at the same time, very creative task!. to make such a creative book, you need vast data mining. you can make more than fasm itself in some meaning, shake your hand with O'Reilly, AW, ... big book makers. they can give a great help to you, you can learn many things.

why fasm-book? it's the independent core logics. so low level, raw power and it's open source. fasm can be applied to the various area! because, fasm is low level language. imagine that, future hacker(now, young kid) read your book, and growing up. they can creat fasm-root programming tools. the tool among of them, will live longer than current computer(p4,x86..).

Somehow I think they wont like the concept of a buy-hardcopy free-softcopy, but maybe they can be persuaded, but I don't think it'll be easy :/

(darn, sourceforge is slow today, may timeouts, but none with other sites, strange.)
