Draft TOC
1. Basic Concepts: Applications of assembly language, basic concepts, machine language, and data representation.
2. IA-32 Processor Architecture: Basic microcomputer design, instruction execution cycle, IA-32 processor architecture, IA-32 memory management, components of a microcomputer, and the input-output system.
3. Assembly Language Fundamentals: Introduction to assembly language, linking and debugging, and defining constants and variables.
4. Data Transfers, Addressing, and Arithmetic: Simple data transfer and arithmetic instructions, assemble-link-execute cycle, operators, directives, expressions, JMP and LOOP instructions, and indirect addressing.
5. Procedures: Linking to an external library, description of the book's link library, stack operations, defining and using procedures, flowcharts, and top-down structured design.
6. Conditional Processing: Boolean and comparison instructions, conditional jumps and loops, high-level logic structures, and finite state machines.
7. Integer Arithmetic: Shift and rotate instructions with useful applications, multiplication and division, extended addition and subtraction, and ASCII and packed decimal arithmetic.
8. Advanced Procedures: Stack parameters, local variables, advanced PROC and INVOKE directives, and recursion.
9. Strings and Arrays: String primitives, manipulating arrays of characters and integers, two-dimensional arrays, sorting, and searching.
