I want to make a timer that will countdown from a number that a user will give such as 20 min. If it is easier I could use the timer as a set amount each time. I want the timer to countdown from 20:00 down to 00:00 (min:sec). I want users to be able to pause and start the time by pressing a s for start and a p for pause. If you have any questions let me know, any help will be greatly appreciated.

I'd skip that work and head straight to a C compliler such as http://users.ece.utexas.edu/~ryerraballi/ConLC3.html

Remember I take it this is not a homework or such assignment (you didn't tell.)

I don't see what it's not possible. Many times folk forget to check the Community Rules at https://www.daniweb.com/welcome/rules about showing effort.

My reply is what I'd do if it was a work project. We don't have to write in assembler on almost any platform today. So why work hard?
