ARM Assembly

So I decided to increase my relationship to iPhone programming a bit and bought an ARM assembly book to learn how to program ARM assembly. The target is to figure out how to program the MMX like instruction set that comes with the processor. Then I would create a vectorized math library ... let's see how this goes.

The ARM instruction set is a thing of beauty. You'll love it.

:-) ... so did you try out to get access to those multimedia instructions?

ehi Wolfgang, what's the title of the book? :)

Wolfgang Engel said...

ARM Assembly Language - an Introduction by J.R. Gibson.

great, it's the best IMHO (and one of the two in the market! ;))

Wolfgang how is the ARM assembly going?

I wrote ASM asM from the first day the Acorn Archimedes came out - who could of known those machines would be do useful!!

Did lots of the ports for Krisalis Software and some 3DO work. Still to this day I prefer the instruction set to most of the others.
