Task: Read the Book “6502 Assembly-Language Programming for Apple Commodore, and Atari Computers” by Chrisopher Lampton
Needed: Web browser for purchase
Time: 3-6 hours or more
At the end of the post, I have included photos of the cover of the version I have along with the table of contents.
You can download a PDF of this book from this web page that has lots of other books on 6502 assembly language programming.
Unlike so many other assembly books I have read, this one doesn’t assume you have much working knowledge of the computer or programming languages beyond BASIC. As such, it really is a gentle introduction.
One you get the basics of assembly down you can try to compile and run a program on your Atari 8-bit computer.
Someday I hope to do some posts on assembly programming for the Atari 2600. Here is a post on how to compile and run a program on the 2600.
