MMIXware: A RISC Computer for the Third Millennium
by Donald E. Knuth
Publisher: Springer 2004
Number of pages: 550
MMIX is a RISC computer designed by Donald Knuth to illustrate machine-level aspects of programming. This book constitutes a collection of programs written in CWEB that make MMIX a virtual reality. Among other utilities, an assembler converting MMIX symbolic files to MMIX objects and two simulators executing the programs in given object files are provided. The latest version of all programs can be downloaded from MMIX's home page. The book provides a complete documentation of the MMIX computer and its assembly language.

In this tiny e-book I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. The 6502 processor was massive in the seventies and eighties, powering famous computers like the BBC Micro, Atari 2600, Commodore 64, Apple II, etc.
This book is about the disassembly of x86 machine code into human-readable assembly, and the decompilation of x86 assembly code into human-readable C or C++ source code. Some topics covered will be common to all computer architectures.
This book covers assembly language programming for the x86 family of microprocessors. The objective is to teach how to program in x86 assembly, as well as the basic architecture of x86 processor family. The book for readers at the intermediate level.
