    Assemblers?

    I am looking into attempting to learning how to code. I have decided to to use ASM Community's wikibook however I have come to an impasse in finding an assembler to work with. Here is a list of choices but what are your suggestions?

    See my wiki.

    It sounds like you are just starting out by your post, are you? If so, I strongly suggest learning another language first.

    Re: Assemblers?

    Although it is certainly worth learning assembly at some point, I agree with LaRoza that assembly isn't a language you would start with to learn programming. Languages like Python are much more suited for that.

    Assembly is also inherently non-portable, if you want to do low-level things and still write more-or-less portable code, C would be a better choice.

    To learn to program you will need to understand control-flow, data structures and algorithms, all of these can be learned using assembly (I did on my C64) but higher-level languages make learning these thing much easier and pleasant.

    Python or another language like it.

    See my wiki (the first link in my sig) it has plenty for you on many languages.

    The text document needs to have a .htm extension, as winblows exploder like to just download the file instead of render it.

    ?

    What version of IE are you using? I didn't write the page in HTML, I wrote it in completely standards compliant XHTML and it is being served with the MIMI type application/xhtml+xml

    My site is in PHP. The extensions don't matter, only the MIMI type.

    Yeah. I gave the link to my homepage, the second was to the wiki. I wrote my homepage, but the wiki is a service.
