Chapters 1-4 focused on the essence of the x86-32 platform. You learned about the x86’s basic data types, its general-purpose registers, its memory addressing modes, and the core x86-32 instruction set. You also examined a cornucopia of sample code that illustrated the nuts and bolts of x86 assembly language programming, including basic operands, integer arithmetic, compare operations, conditional jumps, and manipulation of common data structures. This was followed by an examination of the x87 FPU’s architecture, including its stack-oriented register set and how to write assembly language code to perform floating-point arithmetic.
