Hello all. After seeing the power and speed of programs (and OS's) written in FASM, I'm drawn in! For me, I'm thinking a book for the complete neophyte would be best. I would like some suggestions, if anyone is willing to give them? Smile

Currently, from what I've seen (probably not much), I've narrowed it down to two authors, Kip Irvine & Jeff Duntemann (edit: also Paul Carter). Through reading, I believe it best to avoid Hyde's HLA altogether. I don't see any books on FASM, so I'm guessing NASM will be a good foundation.

I can do simple C / C++ programming, batch, VB/VBA, php stuff.

Having said all that, I'm open to any and all suggestions. It's just amazing to see how blazing fast this is! It seems the only way to go.

Thanks!

Welcome to the place of poor people! We fasmers are very poor. For a start nasm books are good enough for learning fasm assembly. Until tomasz can come up with an official book on fasm/assembly, i think other authors will shy away from authoring any fasm reference out of respect to tomasz.

Tomasz?

Welcome to the FASM forum Smile

AFAIK there are no books for FASM ... so you will have to learn without books (many 100 of people got it that way).

And YES, NASM books are better (more FASM-compatible) than MA$M books.

> I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Run the same OS as you are targeting, and use FASM version and examples consistent with it.

Pardon my ignorance, Asm - it appears the first four tutorials are for those already versed in some form of assembler already? I'm looking over the tutorial.pdf right now though. Thanks!
