I'm new here... though I've been visiting the site as a guest for a year. I'm learning Fortran, and assembly. I own two vintage computers.
Assembly was my second language. Like most other "8-bit" micro-computer owners, my first language was the built-in BASIC interpreter. When I moved on to the IBM PC (Tandy 1000, actually), I decided that BASIC was too slow, so I started learning 8086 assembly. I got an assembler from work (the Navy, they didn't care, and they certainly weren't using it!), I think it was MASM 2.0, and I started typing-in the PC Magazine utilities (which were in ASM at first). I used WordStar, in the non-document mode, as my editor.No, I'm learning them on my current computer(modified IBM 300PL), mainly just to know them. Fortran I'm just learning just to know it. I wish to learn assembly for efficiency.
I'm learning Assembly on an 8086/8088 emulator until my XT is fully operational.
I was using Tasm 3.2, currently I'm looking for a better assembler, or I'll learn to use the debug utility.
Yeah, I have Nasm, I just haven't gotten around to installing it, and won't until I can format my hdd. I'd be using Tasm more, if my computer wasn't giving me so many problems with it. I'll probably give it a try again after the format.
