Oh, I see. That's a mistake I'll have to remember.

Althrough each person has a particular way to learn, I come to the conclusion (after many black nights) that it is easier to get started in assembly if you put all your previous knowledge about programming in a closet and left it there for a while.

Let me make an analogy with the learning of a foreign language. If you learn how to (textually) translate some sentences, you will continue doing this way and it will be hard to explain your mind and after doing a lot of effort. In the other hand, if you learn as a child, you will start thinking in that particular language and the words will follow naturally.

The points you evidenced are exposed very well on Iczelion's tutorials. I want to make the linking bridge with those tutorials. The better you know the basis, the easier you get desired results.

This is my belief and I hope to ease the road for people interested in learning assembly. And there's still a lot to do... Smile

I usually learn by example, and let myself make all the necessary links about what is what. Like this I learned assembly, because usually to lazy to read tutorials (it reminds me of walking slow, it rises a feeling of disgust in my stomach)

You can't use MOV to copy one memory location's value directly to another memory location. It does copy the second parameter to the first, but it's can only handle register->register, memory->register, register->memory, or value->register type operations.


Cant you do immediate -> memory?

yes, immediate is not considered memory as it is directly embedded in the executing instruction

It would, but who will write them. There wasn't anyone (as i know) to write FASM tutorial before me, and I am still very far from fisrt "complete" version.

Things you listed usually aren't problem of language, but problem of using some library (sometimes standard library for language, that's why you think it IS language).

The point you spevidied are more than OK.After all they are the "basic" in every language and most important.
If you know the basics you can do experiments and find out more!
But if you dont know them,,,
Well at the net you can find tutorials for every lnguage...But not FASM:P
That why we need a SIMPLE tutorila texhing us these.

1. How to create, access, and manipulate variables.
2. How to output text to the screen.
3. How to input text from the keyboard.
4. How to control program flow (in FASM, jumps).
5. How to read and write to files.
6. How to parse and manipulate strings.

Yeah, that's basically how I have learned all the languages I know. I learn the basics from a tutorial, and then I experiment to become proficient in the language.

that is one way to learn. Other way (that will be used by my tutorial) is understanding something before using it. For learning, it is best to have tutorials of both types and use them all.

I agree that it is best to have both types, though in fact I prefer the ones that make you understand it before I use it. However, the other type is easier to learn from and quicker to write, no?

My method is to take a working example and to start tweaking it in order to understand how things work. And studying a little theory to understand why things work that way.

That would be helpful too. I need more working examples, though.

That's an idea. We could post small example programs on this thread (or another thread, it doesn't matter). When I am decent at FASM, I'll start doing that.
