INTRODUCTION TO 64 BIT ASSEMBLY PROGRAMMING

FOR LINUX AND OS X: THIRD EDITION - FOR LINUX AND

OS X BY RAY SEYFARTH PDF

This is the third edition of this assembly language programming textbook introducing programmers to 64 bit Intel assembly language. The primary addition to the third edition is the discussion of the new version of the free integrated development environment, ebe, designed by the author specifically to meet the needs of assembly language programmers. The new ebe is a C++ program using the Qt library to implement a GUI environment consisting of a source window, a data window, a register, a floating point register window, a backtrace window, a console window, a terminal window and a project window along with 2 educational tools called the "toy box" and the "bit bucket". The source window includes a full-featured text editor with convenient controls for assembling, linking and debugging a program. The project facility allows a program to be built from C source code files and assembly source files. Assembly is performed automatically using the yasm assembler and linking is performed with ld or gcc. Debugging operates by transparently sending commands into the gdb debugger while automatically displaying registers and variables after each debugging step. Additional information about ebe can be found at http://www.rayseyfarth.com. The second important addition is support for the OS X operating system. Assembly language is similar enough between the two systems to cover in a single book. The book discusses the differences between the systems. The book is intended as a first assembly language book for programmers experienced in high level programming in a language like C or C++. The assembly programming is performed using the yasm assembler automatically from the ebe IDE under the Linux operating system. The book primarily teaches how to write assembly code compatible with C programs. The reader will learn to call C functions from assembly language and to call assembly functions from C in addition to writing complete programs in assembly language. The gcc compiler is used internally to compile C programs. The book starts early emphasizing using ebe to debug programs, along with teaching equivalent commands using gdb. Being able to single-step assembly programs is critical in learning assembly programming. Ebe makes this far easier than using gdb directly. Highlights of the book include doing input/output programming using the Linux system calls and the C library, implementing data structures in assembly language and high performance assembly language programming. Early chapters of the book rely on using the debugger to observe program behavior. After a chapter on functions, the user is prepared to use printf and scanf from the C library to perform I/O. The chapter on data structures covers singly linked lists, doubly linked circular lists, hash tables and binary trees. Test programs are presented for all these data structures. There is a chapter on optimization techniques and 3 chapters on specific optimizations. One chapter covers how to efficiently count the 1 bits in an array with the most efficient version using the recently-introduced popcnt instruction. Another chapter covers using SSE instructions to create an efficient implementation of the Sobel filtering algorithm. The final high performance programming chapter discusses computing correlation between data in 2 arrays. There is an AVX implementation which achieves 20.5 GFLOPs on a single core of a Core i7 CPU. A companion web site, http://www.rayseyfarth.com, has a collection of PDF slides which instructors can use for in-class presentations and source code for sample programs.

Helpful; Examples, Screen-shots with info. pertaining to Programs;Certain things were difficult; can do Assembly in Ebe Program

By Anonymous787

I received a free copy of both versions (Windows, & (Linux, OS X ) ) in exchange for writing a review for them. This review applies to both.

Both versions look like they have the same content in terms of what you learn about in 64-bit assembly.

Some of the differences between the 2 versions:

process memory model

function calls ; more info. at a link - (a 1 pg doc - there's info. on "function call differences" in it )

Chapter 1.1 section (a reference) -has info. about why one should study assembly.

Pros

1. just teaches 64-bit assembly programming

These books are the only ones I found that do this. They contain other helpful info. & also non-64 bit stuff. They contain examples of assembly programs & screen-shots with info. that pertain to them.

2. learn about the ebe program which can be used for writing assembly programs; ebe is used a lot in this book.

Appendix A - Installing ebe for Linux, Mac, Windows Appendix B - goes into ebe more ; major features of ebe

3. suitable for beginners & up 4. nicely organized

(7)

also system calls , stream i/o

7. can do high performance assembly

Cons:

1. Certain parts (some in the learning info), (more in code, exercises) were difficult) Sobel Filter code (more info. in this review)

some exercises-a. use advanced math

b. difficulty understanding what to do

2. no solutions to any of the exercises

Suggestions:

explain the more difficult things better & with diagrams too if necessary see if you can merge both versions of the book into 1 book

provide solutions to the exercises

Some things not covered:

how to call an assembly function from a C program how OOP , multi-threading are translated in assembly

This book or the other book: Recommended for learning 64-bit assembly

---I sent the info. below (Sobel Filter Code, possible Errata, Errata) to the author.

Sobel Filter Code:

Why does it say "at least 3 columns" close to the start of code when to process 14 Sobel values , the column value needs to be a multiple of 16? If this is possible, please clarify?

Still, not sure exactly how the code unfills the borders of the output array. Can you explain this? I think I'm getting very close. I wrote info. here.

An example: Input: there are 3 rows of pixels, each 16 columns.

Output: should be 14 Sobel values in the output array. Elements at [0] & [15] of the row in the output array should be unfilled.

P =pixel XMM Registers store output pixels (P2)-(P17) , 16 values, which go in the Output Array Below

Ex. Output Array element[0] is at addr 4000 &(Row [0][0]) ; addr 4000 + 1 &(Row[0][1]) contains the 1st output pixel that's from 1 of the XMM registers

For every row in the output array, element at [0] in that row doesn't have XMM data OK [Left Border]

(8)

P16 = Row[0][15] P17 = Row[1][0]

P16 , P17 aren't overwritten.

There would be 2 values per row in the output array that aren't overwritten.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful. Great so far

By Tim

Just got the book a while back and have been working my way through it. Great so far!

The EBE IDE (it took me ages to figure out why the compile and run button was an alien icon - duh!), which I thought I wasn't going to bother with, ended up turning out to be actually quite helpful. I didn't have any problems installing the software, it just needs Homebrew or MacPorts for OS X users, but it's all explained on the author's website, which you should check out, as there is an errata, tutorial and source code.

There are other assembly books out there, but this one gets my vote, rather than certain others, where you read three chapters and end up only using the author's c-library! Sure it makes it easier for complete beginners, but everyone nowadays has done some programming before so that approach seems a bit redundant, and most (come on, all!) people would actually like to see some real Assembly if they pick up one of these books after all, as soon as possible.

This author actually does come up with a very clever little first *real* assembly program that can be echo'd back to your shell, you can also do the whole thing in yasm or his EBE. Do both for the practice.

I certainly recommend this book, especially as it focuses on 64-bit programming, which many others don't.

Fantastic, easy to follow assembly language book. I want more! By Robert Moss

I love this book so much, it's not funny. I just wish there were more of it.

Assembly programming is so exciting to me, I wish this book existed for the entire AMD64 instruction set.

Not for building your own OS, but rather for optimizing your existing programs with assembly. Shows how to view existing programs assembly code with objdump, shows how to interact with c or other compiled libraries, and how to write your own.
