I am new to writing assembly in linux and I need help with the sys_read call. I am using nasm and I would like to read input from the keyboard. I know how to set the call up but what do I use for the file descriptor. I can not find a list of the file descriptors.

finally found what I was looking for.

...and of course, you didn't care to share, but cared enough to inform everybody you're happy with the solution that you've found.
