Should ASM Lesson 5 be an appendix?
« on: May 07, 2011, 05:46:36 pm »
As I'm working on finalizing my ASM lessons once and for all, I'm adding some more appendixes.  I am wondering if lesson 5 in its current form is necessary...does it really need to talk about how ASM programs translate?

So the question for the vote:  Has ASM Lesson 5 made it easier for you to understand jumps, labels and variables, or do you think that you could understand jumps, labels and variables without knowing the "guts" of an asm program?

If lesson 5 is made into an appendix, I will write a new, shorter one that covers jumps, labels and variables.

There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

I think Lesson 5 should be included.  It explains a lot about what is compiled into the actual program and what is just an instruction to the compiler.  I think it is necessary to explain how the compiler compiles the commands and how the Z80 reads the instructions.

Again, these are just my opinions.  You can do whatever you want with your lessons. ;)

Actually, I'm hoping for opinions :D  Your opinion is valuable and noted.

Hot Dog, I just went over Lesson 5 to say this, and I don't think so, it was written as a lesson, not as an appendix and that is clear by reading the text :)
