Help!! Example PowerPC Asm code need!!!
« on: February 13, 2003, 10:14:28 PM »
All of my asm programming experince is on the x86 platform. I would like start writing software for the AmigaOne platform using PowerPC asm code. If any one have any or can point to where I can find any it will be a big help. One more thing, my computer can't read .hla files, but can read tar, gz, txt, and zip file formats. Thanks for your help. fatman2021

Information about RISC

You´ll need the information about RISC architecture, if you wanna learn PowerPC assembler. Actually i´ll guess you´ll learn it much easier if you read some documentation about RISC first, as PowerPC is a RISC architecture.

Anyhows, THE book for learning about RISC is "Computer Organization and Design: The Hardware/Software Interface" by Hennesey & Patterson. If you really wanna learn RISC programming, this book gives you all the informations about pipelining, caches, etc, and has good examples in MIPS code (which of course, also is RISC).
