Obtaining a Hard Copy

The 16-bit edition of The Art of Assembly Language Programming has never been published in print form except as a set of class notes for use in various assembly language programming courses. There are no plans to publish this version in print form. This page describes how to obtain a hard copy if you absolutely must have one.

To obtain a hard copy of the Art of Assembly Language Programming, you have two choices:

  • Print your own copy on almost any printer using the PDF files here on Webster. This is the preferred mechanism!
  • Have someone else make the copy for you.

The absolute worst thing you can do is attempt to print the HTML version of the text. The HTML version is incomplete, poorly formatted, and requires much more space (paper) to print. The only reasonable solution is to print the PDF version of the text (you will need a copy of Adobe's Acrobat Reader to view and print PDF files; you can get a free copy from http://www.adobe.com).

Note that the 32-bit edition of the text is available from No Starch Press (http://www.nostarch.com) and you should really obtain a copy of that version if you want a hard copy.

Once you download a copy of the text, you can print it on your own printer. You should only use the PDF files for printer, never the HTML version. The HTML version is incomplete, is not formatted well, and consumes about 50% more paper to print the same information. You may download a free copy of Acrobat reader (for PDF files) from www.adobe.com.

The published edition of Randall Hyde's "The Art of Assembly Language" has been edited to emphasize the most important material a beginner needs to know in order to learn assembly language quickly. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the software, examples, and other information you'll need to learn assembly language programming. Also included on the CD-ROM are the electronic versions of the original 32-bit and 16-bit editions of this book.

Note that "The Art of Assembly Language" teaches 32-bit assembly language programming under both Windows and Linux (simultaneously) and almost all programs in the book are portable between the two operating systems.
