My friend Shim bought
this book partly due to my recommendation, but mostly because one of the authors is called 'Wankyu'.
ARM Assembly Language Programming
Ok, you got me. I used to be an Acorn freak. This was the book I learnt ARM
assembly language from. It's way out of print now, but the author has put up
the book on the web - have a look at it here.
Interestingly (or perhaps not), I was instrumental in saving the original floppy discs containing
the copy for this book when I worked at Computer Concepts. They were in a big box of floppies
that were going to be thrown away, and I bravely stood up for the values of tradition, nostalgia, and
respect for your forebears, and with the ringing tone of authority and justice in my voice, said loudly and firmly something like "Er...are you sure we should throw these
Anyway, this book is good - clear and helpful, and the first book about assembly language
programming I had read that I felt I could really understand. Some of this is probably due to
the fact that after wrestling with the 6502, ARM code was so easy!
