Similarities: almost none.
Differences: a lot. If you want to learn asm, the best advice is to forget all you know about basic and start over.

Does that help?


No, it doesn't. This is something I seriously think someone should invest time in. I know that they say to forget BASIC and learn Asm by starting over, but this book would describe the best way for a BASIC programmer to begin to understand Asm.

Shadowing: you should definitely be a part of this, considering you just started learning Asm. Other Asm'ers (word?), please make this tutorial! Like I have said before, the world will be a better place!!!

O.K. maybe I will. I'll have to post a new topic asking asm programmers to help me. Think I should start with a simple program telling you how to clear a screen.

Read my new topic I posted. Maybe it'll help people not to read asmguru and experience crashes.

Crashes? Huh, what crashes? I meant that it's probably not a good idea to write an asm tutorial if you don't even know assembly, like the guy who wrote asmguru did.

That's why I'm asking asm programmers to help me learn. Plus, asmguru is very stupid and ironic. How does that guy know all that when he's supposed to not know?

Maybe, but I don't think he was. How did he learn? Oh yes, any asm skilled programmers please help me in writing an asm tutorial by teaching me.

tasm does NOT ever create an 8xp by itself (unless you have a hax0red version Laughing) it spits out a bin file...

It doesn't for me. It's probably because I use devpac8x linker. Is there any asm programmers wanting to help me?

EDIT: the hello file is hello.z80.xlt, is that bad?

Dude, you don't drag it into it. First of all, put up the TASM folder screen. Go to start and press run. Type in command. Then it should say C:\,,,TASM. When it says that, type in asm prog.
