I am new to assembly, and I am trying to learn it. I was given a book by one of my professor to read over the Holidays unfortunately the book assumes basic knowledge in Assembly (BTW, the book is "See MIPS run linux") I just have some basic questions to clear the picture:
* What is the difference between MIPS assembly and x8600 assembly??
do they use the same debugger ?
* When someone says "MIPS architecture" does this have to do with the processor used??
* what is the best way to start programming in assembly (I usually use emacs or xcode to code in c/c++ would it work with assembly??)
* Finally, is it true that some games are programmed using assembly to make it run faster :D (it is a bit between me and one of my friends LOL)
