hi, here, we all use this programm, fasm, but, for what?

what are your projects and occupations with fasm?

me, i try to code a system, but i think i'll never achieve it.
and you, what do you do with fasm? is it possible to make money with fasm coded applications?

what do these programs do?

is it principally for hobby, or for job?

I do not do it for work, just for fun and curiosity Wink
I like Hardware and system programming ,maybe an OS ,but i'll start when all documentation are free , Anyway it's an Hobby for me Very Happy

to be frank, fasm has already become part of my life.
whenever i got connected to internet, somehow i will type board.flatassembler.net

i could see myself from beginner to intermediate (i hope so Razz) lots of thread i started actually is part of my experience towards this life, to understand life and see how to deal with it.

that's why i launched the dead contest of fasmbrowser.
the lack of pro feature inside my head made it dead. sorry.

i hope i'll work on it this week end, to revive the project.


now, the problem, why i paost this thread, it that i don't know exactlly why we all have this interrest in ASSEMBLER.

why? not only for hardware control, not only for "fast program" coding (not fast "program coding" Wink ), not only because fasm is the best assembler of the world.. there is another reaon, but which reason? i don't know... future???

i must confess something.
but i prefer ... say nothing.

this is boring, only the 0) is 1% done.

for fun, automation reasons, tools..
well because the computers are a part of this world it is good to have knowledge there also..

making just applications is not a good idea.. i mean everything already exists, you won't sit to make a media player because there are a million of them already in the market/internet and never the less you won't have promossion.. everything is already coded.. too hard to find something "new".

Programming the computers in the early 80's you HAD to use assembly to get an kind of decent performance and usefulness out of your program or game (especially games). So knowing assembly back then was a major plus for software development. fast foward to 2008 and almost all major software now is done in a high level language. Computers are much, much faster and compilers are much better at optimizing your code. There is very little reason for the average programmer to learn assembly any more except to use the SSEx instructions. For me, it's more of hobby than anything else, Without fasmw's excellent macro package, I probably would've given up on assembly completely and program exclusively in C/C++ now.

x86 is my first language - I use FASM to speak to my relatives.

One thing that comes across from reading some of the posts in topic's like this, is the notion that you should only use asm, if it some how adds to the project, something that is not available in HLL.
But have you ever thought that maybe coder's like to write in asm, as in what you put in you get out, garbage in garbage out. So as long as you put good code in you will get good code out, this is not the case with HLL, as you do not know 100% whats going on, under all those layers.

HLL's are good for prototyping because an assembly system doesn't exist to manage a massive number of abstractions. One could even say that that is what a HLL is - a system to manage abstractions. Very Happy In that regard most HLL code is disposable, or only useful as a template for the assembly implementation. Razz
