The purpose of this text is to provide a simple and free reference for university level programming and architecture units that include a brief section covering MIPS assembly language. The text uses the QtSpim simulator.
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.
