What would make someone choose assembly rather than writing C code?
From my sources here; it deals with computer hardware in a very intimate way. It can run faster and take up less space in memory. I'd say for Winamp if one is considering controlling external devices which I am very sure there are c/c++ variants out there dependent on 3rd party modules.
I have never gone beyond simple std::in std:
ut variants in assembly. I could not find any official support for it, the downloads I found were harmful. I don't know if Microsoft still support it. Just as earlier i tried to assemble the code above I got a fatal A1000: cannot open file : windows.inc which I searched for and nowhere to be found in my library, checked the internet and I was presented with a "slightly modified" one. I'd really appreciate it if I could get links to reliable MASM library.
