Assembly Neckbearded Basement Dweller 16/11/24(Thu)11:31 No. 4962 [Reply]

hey /pr/

I've been learning Unity/C# for a while,
and I want to learn a little assembly, mostly since I like to learn how the computer works and feel I could understand other languages better if I got a look under the hood.
I looked up some stuff online, but I have a few questions:

1. I noticed there are different assembly languages for each CPU architecture, with x64 being able to run x86 code in 32bit mode.
however, I found a code sample that had this at the top:
".586 ;Target processor. Use instructions for Pentium class machines"

does this mean that each processor/processor generation has a different assembly language, or is it just an optimization thing?

2. are there GPU specific assembly languages as well?

1. While each x86 processor is backwards compatible with previous processors, they do have instructions that take advantage of new features. For example, before math co-processors were standard on Pentium era CPUs programmers had to manually detect the presence of a math processor and programs had two code paths, one that took advantage of FPU instructions and one that didnt.
2. No. On modern kernel architectures you do not program the GPU directly. The closest you'll get is NVIDIA's CUDA and similar.
3. Not at all. Unless you are engineering Hard Real Time stuff and some forms of embedded, or you are trying to break systems (i.e. creating NOP sleds etc), a modern programmer will never need asm. Thank allah. Additionally, these days it is really unlikely the average programmer can hand craft asm that is faster then what a compiler can do.

Thanks, great info.
So if I understand correctly x86/x64 asm is mainly useful as a learning tool and for hacking.

How about ARM assembly? would learning it be beneficial for optimizing apps, or hacking together something that couldn't be done otherwise?

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 16/11/28(Mon)08:32 No. 4968

Knowing the Assembly for your target architecture can be useful not so much to write code but to debug it. Sometimes you may find that a crash is only triggered when the application it built with optimizations, and when you look at the debugger, it may only show you the disassembly at the point where the program crashed. Knowing Assembly can help you figure out what's causing the crash.

Knowing Assembly also opens up other possibilities, such as studying executables to figure out how they do what they do (i.e. reverse engineering)

ARM Assembly is exactly as useful as other other Assemblies, for any given application domain.
Personally, being used to x86 and some of its predecessors, I find it rather annoying to use.

Hey, so I installed anaconda in a brand new Linux Mint distro but when I
"spyder --new-instance" it opens spyder 2.7, and I need 3.5 for what I'm doing atm.

Can anyone give me a few pointers?

void * voidPtr(NULL);
int * intPtr(NULL);
double check(0.00022);
double * dubs(&check);

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 16/11/17(Thu)14:42 No. 4961

I see what you did there...

But for real OP, anaconda has this concept of environments. You should make one for each distort of python / toolchain set you might want.

to do that see this stack overflow posting and act accordingly:

Hey, I'm learning C++ and need a little bit of advice on this practice program. After putting delete[] in the program, sometimes the program will run but sometimes windows will say the program stopped working(even though after I close the popup it runs fine.) What's going on?

The object is on the stack, so no need to delete it.

I appropriated this python script to redirect dbus screenlock calls to xscreensaver. Now there are two competing dbus services, GNOME's own org.gnome.ScreenSaver and light-locker's org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver. I want this script to be able to replace both, so it can be adopted for a wider range of desktop environments.

How can I create two dbus services with one script?

On Windows, delete system32.

On Linux, sudo rm -rf /

Then kill yourself.

For a while, the mod tools have been rightfully criticized on LynxChan. I have always put mods behind users and admins and it showed.

But now with 1.7 I looked into changing that. This version brings several improvements to moderation:

==Better report queue==
Now reports display the reported content, removing the need for mods to open the page to see what has been reported. But in some cases they won't even have to open the page, because now you have the option to automatically delete the reported content when you close it's report.
Along with that, two other lesser changes were made to the report queue; the link to visualize the post takes you to the moderation page and you can close multiple reports at once.
Reports are deleted when their reported content is deleted, removing cluster.

==More moderation tools==
Deletion by IP have been implement for board staff too, so they are able to deal with spam better without relying on the global staff.
Narrow range ips have been implemented, allowing for range bans to use 3/4 of the ip instead of 1/2, giving moderation more control over range bans.

==Moderation quality of life==
To make bans easier, now ban duration defaults to 5 years and global staff are not required to use the captcha for applying bans anymore.

Remember that people know computers are lethal weapons which require a license to use and not only that but people have already endured not only alchemy , code war , and existential restarts , but these same so called never before seen astrological attacks and Monotheism God is going to crush all of you that think 0 and 1 are going to save you in a bitheist lie world as if Monotheism God never beat this stupid behavior before so please recall to be good and orderly in turning in ANY which does include yourself that have do e wrong that have done wrong against human life as such to start them to be killed to death for no reason as other than not being able to program the way you like .
