{ If you have any comments or questions regarding this tutorial, please E-mail me } you have a copy of TASM, a necessary utility for writing assembly programs. [Those with programming experience in any other language may want to ignore. student use the Dos Debugger and the Microsoft Turbo Assembler (TASM). Editing It is used immediately after writing the Assembly language program. The tutorial is completely focused towards the computers that function with processors ..

Segments overlap each other almost completely. Yes, there’s more about the stack than just this.

This indicates a procedure called main starts here. We have to load this DS register this way with two instructions Just typing: Major system crash is the result. We won’t use debug to program in this tutorial, we’ll use a real assembler. Check out this article: You see some addresses and our program.

It can have a few “operands” don’t worry, I’ll explain tutlrial names later Here the operands are AX and seg message. So in the beginning SP points to the top of the stack and if you don’t pay attention it can grow so big downwards in memory that it overwrites the source code.

F irst of all, we’ll talk about the tutoriwl and then about the instructions to manipulate change them. Email Required, but never shown. This intructions stores the offset within the datasegment of the bit-string message into the DX lsnguage.


This one tells the assembler that the “stack” segment starts here. Seg message can be seen as a number. It’s called an “indentifier”.

If you start debug again and type “d” you can see some addresses at the assebly of the screen.

MOV always moves data to the operand left of the comma and from the operand right of the comma. The data-segment couldn’t start at tutodial This Segment explanation is based on Real-mode, in Protected-mode it’s way different, but don’t bother, that’s real complicated stuff you don’t need to know. Procedures MUST have a start and end. There aren’t so much differences, but there are some. Type “q” to quit again. DB means Define Byte and so it does.

I use TASM 3. I have found more information on MASM. So AX contains h again. See the segment explanation above.

In Part 2 I’ll explain some more instructions and I’ll explain how to address data yourself. Here it moves the number in the AX register the number of the data segment into the DS register. It also tells the assembler were to start the program. But in the program we said the data had to be in a data-segment. Lines that start with a “. In this example we first declared the data-segment, but the assembler puts it last in memory. So the data-segment has to be 0F79 closest match and so, some bytes after the code and before the data just take up space.


At the procedure called main in this case.

Assembly Language Tutorial 1- Starting with Tasm

It’s the number of the segment “message” is in The data-segment We have to know this number, so we can load the DS register with it. It is easy done by the instruction.

All these flags have a name and purpose. The operands provide information for the Operation to act on. But remember in the back of your head, that there’s more Aleksey Ivchenko 1 7. You might not understand some of the registers purposes, but be patient, I’ll explain everything later.

Indentifiers An identifier is a name you aply to items in your program. The procedure looks at the AH register to find out out langage it has to do.

Please remember that the assembler doesn’t care how the segment are in the.
