This text presents a straightforward discussion of the way in which basic techniques in computing may be applied to the new technology of microprocessors. Each topic is considered first in terms of general principles and then in relation to four of the most popular machines.
In essence, machine code programming is direct programming of he microprocessor without using a built-in high-level computer language such as BASIC. The vast increase in running speed obtained when writing programs in machine code is offset, to a degree, by the added complexity in writing them....
Understanding Computer Science brings you basic understanding of the use of computers in an easy-to-understand language.
This book traces the exploits of the computer revolution's original hackers -- those brilliant and eccentric nerds from the late 1950s through the early '80s who took risks, bent the rules, and pushed the world in a radical new direction. Levy profiles the imaginative brainiacs who found clever and...
