learning coding in x64 architecture

learning coding in x64 architecture

Hello,

                I am an 2nd year computer engineering student. I am familiarized with intel 8086 assembley coding and Motorola M68HC11 architectures.

I want to learn(instruction set) and develope in assembly language for x64 architectures like intel i3 processor. I also want to learn  acessing peripheral devices like display, camera, speakers through this coding. Can anyone please suggest any online resources, developement tools so that i can start early and get my hands dirty by experimenting with my codes?.

Divyesh, seems like there are two resources that might be helpful for you:

http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/introduction-to-x64-assembly

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/architectures-software-developer-manuals.html

I hope they are helpful for you.

The learning curve is quite steep.  Depending on your current level, you may try climbing lower ranges first:

1.  If you are not fluent with Assembly, LINK, LIB etc, try take a course in 8086 assembly. Really compile, link and test your lessons.

2.  >>I also want to learn  acessing peripheral devices like display, camera, speakers through this coding <<    In the old days of DOS, every programmer knew about device-drivers. In current Windows/Linux times, this arcane art is obscured behind 'sockets' and services provided by the operating system. Microsoft documentation on device-drivers is a good starting point for Windows programmers.

3. Microsoft VC and Intel's C++ ( 'Composer XE' ) allow Inline-Assembly. That is, small code fragments written in assembler inside a C environment. This makes life much simpler. Just the built in debugger is worth gold. 

Note:  older 64-bit VC versions did not allow in-line assembly. So, start with 32-bit VC. The transition from 32-bit to 64-bit is a small hill compared to the full Assembly mountain. Note that 'VC Express version' may lack some features you must have - check for yourself. In the absence of further knowledge, opt for an older, but full, version.

I know - from experience - that Intel' C++ compiler and debugger recognize 64-bit instructions.

I hope that helps.
