Assembly Coders?

Post icon  Posted 08 June 2007 - 02:46 AM

I hope everyone is doing OK.

I do assembly coding in 32 bit and am looking for some help.

I saw a few snippets here. Are there any current asm coders still writing code ?

Thanks.

My company wrote & released this anti spyware,malware program with about 85% assembly.
www.hoststopper.com

From time to time we'll write a DLL in assembly & release it with a program written in C/VB.

I was working on a 16 bit boot-loader in my spare time, & I got as far as reading the data in the keyboard buffer back, trying to display it as it should be read. I also know of a group called "Dual Core" http://dualcoremusic.com/nerdcore/, one of whom calls himself Int Eighty, for the Kernel Interupt.

That's interesting. I have seen the term but don't know what a bootloader is.

Do you have any experience using WM_Query_Session.

I would like my apps to check and see if another app is fixing
to shut down the system.

Thanks.

I'm assuming that is a Windows API call?

In order to accomplish that, you would need to hook the windows API & listen for that API call.

Spy ware & anti Virus programs work using Windows API Hooking.

Do you have some example code that would show that ?

Thanks.

WM_ is generally a Windows Message that translates to an integer value (off the top of my head). You'll find things like WM_Left_Mouse_Button and the like if you search MSDN for "Windows Message"

I use Masm 6. something on Windows & Nasm on Linux & FreeBSD.

I've been trying to find an assembler for the Nintendo (6502 ASM) for FreeBSD, I have one for Linux.

i've learned a bit of asm too. i used nasm on linux, but i couldn't figure out how to get started on windows (xp). i scoured google for stuff, but i could only find GUI tutorials. [and i would like to do console related stuff].

If you willing to invest some time on learning assembly, go here

http://www.masm32.com

They have a complete assembly package with everything you need.

Assembler, compiler, source code, editor.

Read the tutorials and try out the assembler. It has built in macros to make things pretty easy.

They will answer any questions.

Winasm is another good package that uses the masm32 package which has all the libraries and include files.

It makes very small executables.

There are several assembly newsgroups.

comp.lang.asm.x86 and there is one for masm too, but they are real slim
on the posts.

Once you get some practice, I can give you more resoureces.

Everything you'll need to get started with GUI asm under Windows.

I use TASM and I still have my code from the assembly class i took which could probably be useful (althought not all of it is 100% correct because it can get somewhat difficult in places w/ jumps being out of range and what not). If you have a place i can send it i'll give it to you.. its basic IBM assembly code

Why not upload them to the assembly section of code snippets?
