Submission Assembly Language in Linux->

Brandon Pelfrey writes: "Assembly Language, especially in the 8086 family has seen a wide berthing throughout the last couple of decades. Whether you're programming in C++, Java, Ruby, or any other programming language, the code that you spend hours slaving over eventually becomes mangled into assembly code that often times, developers simply don't truly understand or have a grasp on. At, there has been a revival in my interests and in the mind of some others in what some see as a lost art. With RAD design methodologies and complex libraries, some elements of programming have been lost. Programmers in this day, even with increasing hardware at their disposal, need to learn optimization and proper debugging which comes only with experience and learning the Assembly code behind their compiled binaries. Head over to and brush up on assembly code: your programming will be better from it!"
