The overflow flag see below is used for detecting errors in the arithmetic. The precise definition of the overflow state is the exclusive-OR of the carries from bits 30 and 31 during the add or subtract operation. What this means in real terms is that if the V flag is set, the result is too large to fit in a single bit word. In this case, the sign of the result will be wrong, which is why the signed condition codes take the state of the V flag into account.
Introduction This document contains very brief examples of assembly language programs for the x The topic of x86 assembly language programming is messy because: There are many different assemblers out there: All use radically different assembly languages. Many different object file formats exist: You generally will be calling functions residing in the operating system or other libraries so you will have to know some technical details about how libraries are linked, and not all linkers work the same way.
Modern x86 processors run in either 32 or bit mode; there are quite a few differences between these.
We will even include a section on DOS assembly language programs for historical interest. These notes are not intended to be a substitute for the documentation that accompanies the processor and the assemblers, nor is it intended to teach you assembly language.
Its only purpose is to show how to assemble and link programs using different assemblers and linkers. Assemblers and Linkers Regardless of the assembler, object file format, linker or operating system you use, the programming process is always the same: Each assembly language file is assembled into an "object file" and the object files are linked with other object files to form an executable.
A "static library" is really nothing more than a collection of probably related object files. It supports a massive and clunky assembly language.
Memory addressing is not intuitive. The directives required to set up a program make programming unpleasant.

It was designed to be part of the back end of the GNU compiler collection gcc. The language is much more sensible than MASM in many respects. This document does not cover how to use all the different assemblers; you need to read the documentation that comes with them.
We will, however, give step-by-step instructions and complete examples of all three of these assemblers for a few extremely simple programs.
There are many object file formats. Some you should know about include OMF: Used in modern bit Linux and elsewhere ELF Used in bit Linux and elsewhere macho Some linkers out there include LINK.
EXE, for Microsoft operating systems. In our first example we will use system calls for writing to a file call number 1 and exiting a process call number Here it is in the NASM assembly language: Runs on bit Linux only.
To assemble and run: If you just enter "gcc hello. You can suppress the link step with the -c option to gcc, or do the assembly and linking in one step by telling the linker not to use the C library with -nostdlib.
System Calls in bit Linux There are some systems with bit builds of Linux out there still. Although it might be interesting to show some examples for historical reasons, this introduction is probably better kept short. Programming with a C Library Sometimes you might like to use your favorite C library functions in your assembly code.
This should be trivial because the C library functions are all stored in a C library, such as libc. Technically the code is probably in a dynamic library, like libc. Still, all we have to do is place calls to C functions in our assembly language program, and link with the static C library and we are set.
So if we link with a C library, all we have to do is define main and end with a ret instruction! Here is a simple example in NASM, which illustrates calling puts.
Runs on Linux or any other system that does not use underscores for symbols in its C library.Assembly Language Programming: Subroutines by Alex Milenkovich, [email protected] Objectives: Introduce subroutines, subroutine nesting, processor stack, and passing the parameters to subroutines.
1. Subroutines In a given program, it is often needed to perform a particular sub-task many times on different data values. C program to find nCr and nPr (Combinations and Permutations) Posted by akash shastri on 04 September This is a C language program code to find .
Definitions The factorial of 0 (zero) is defined as being 1 (unity). The Factorial Function of a positive integer, n, is defined as the product of the sequence: n, n-1, n-2, 1.
Task. Write a function to return the factorial of a number. Solutions can be iterative or recursive. Assembly language programmers and compiler writers should take great care in producing efficient code. This requires a fairly deep understanding of the x86 architecture, especially the behavior of the cache(s), pipelines and alignment bias.
