Assembly (asm) is any low-level programming language in which there is a very strong correspondence between the instructions in the language and the architecture’s machine code instructions. It is often referred to as machine code for this reason. An assembler translates the assembly language syntax into their numerical equivalents.
There is no go to version of assembly - each assembly language is specific to a particular computer architecture and sometimes to an operating system.
I have picked up learning assembly so that I can gain a greater understanding and appreciation of other programming languages in terms of what they provide, such as C and Python which essentially sit on top of assembly. This page will be continually developed and worked on as I learn more about it.
