More > large programs well — usually programs they wrote themselves — and never study the great programs of history. As a result, they repeat one another’s mistakes rather than building on one another’s successes. This second volume of The Architecture of Open Source Applications aims to change that. In it, the authors of twenty-four open source applications explain how their software is structured, and why. What are each program's major components? How do they interact? And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to this book provide unique insights into how they think. All royalties from the sales of both volumes of this book in all forms go to Amnesty International.< Less

The approach is not to teach how to program in assembly language but to describe what is going on at the assembly language level when writing in a high level language. Based on the 64-bit mode. Each concept is introduced with C/C++ constructs followed by a discussion of the assembly language implementation. Assumes that the reader already knows basic programming concepts in a high-level language and builds on that. Uses the GNU/Linux, which allows a clear connection between C/C++ and assembly language. C Standard Library is used for I/O instead of supplying special routines. Online version at< Less
