The Atari Assembler

Prentice-Hall πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ 1981

Now you can master assembly language programming and learn how to use the Atari Assembler Cartridge with your Atari 400 or 800 model Computer at the same time! This excellent guidebook is designed for readers with some BASIC language programming knowledge, but assumes no assembly language background.

Your BASIC background leads you gradually into assembly language programming. THE ATARI ASSEMBLER takes an easy pace through each program. Sketches of the video screen show you each stage of entering and executing the sample programs and step-by-step instructions help you make the transition from BASIC programming to the Atari's own language.

The authors know just how important it is to learn by doing. As you explore the Atari Assembler Cartridge and discover how to program in the assembly language, you are urged to try out instructions and programs on the Computer, checking your results on the video screen. By the time you complete this book, you will be designing your own Creative assembly language programs.
