This will probably be a silly question but...

So, if every assembly program becomes an executable file, does it matter the type of the processor of the machine? I mean, there are so many types of assembly, can I use all of them in the same machine or do I have to use specific ones depending on the cpu?
Assembly maps precisely 1-to-1 with processor architectures. x86 assembly can be run on all kinds of x86 processors, from the 80286 to the most modern Core i3/5/7 processors (assuming you don't use fancy extra instructions introduced in the past thirty or so years). z80 assembly runs on z80 processors, and ez80 assembly runs on ez80 processors.
Thanks Kerm!
