Assemblers And Loaders
by David Salomon
Publisher: Prentice Hal 1993
Number of pages: 299
Covering the design and implementation of assemblers and loaders, this comprehensive book opens with an introduction to one-pass and two-pass assemblers. Important concepts such as absolute and relocatable object files are discussed, as are assembler features such as local labels and multiple location counters. The format, meaning and implementation of many directives are look at in detail, and the important topics of macros and conditional assembly are introduced. The latter part of the book is concerned with the listing file, the properties of disassemblers and a look at three special types of assemblers. The book closes with a chapter on loaders and includes a very detailed example of the basic operation of a one-pass linking loader, together with other features and concepts such as dynamic loading, bootstrap loaders, and overlays.

This book offers the reader both a detailed description of the LADS assembler and an efficient tool, a complete language with which to write other machine language programs. Every line in the program is described, all the subroutines are explained.
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 introduces students to assembly language programming in MIPS. It covers basic operators and instructions, subprogram calling, loading and storing memory, program control and the conversion of the assembly language program into machine code.
