Guys, thanks very much for the help on this.
I'm looking at BC's website and there doesnt seem to be any information on
late late registration. The phone number for the registrars office is (718)
758-8120. If anything, I think if you have the money CUNY will take it if you
arent taking it for credit. This was only the second time the class has met,
the next class is in a week. Labor day we will be off, between then and now
space may still be available.
The 'lab' where I work has TASM on the machines, I can use them in a pinch.
As far as waiting for an assembly course that doesnt use TASM or MASM, that
will be a long wait. The three OSes they have here are Solaris, OSX and
winduz. No one teaches assembly on the Sun machines, I spoke to the Sun
admin. He tells me the faculty was interested, including one of their prize
best Unix professors (Whitlock). But this was a long time ago and no one has
picked up the ball. Nonetheless there could be potential. Also, I think I
can mention to the professor about NASM and see what she says. She doesnt
seem to be hung up on any particular OS so I dont think I will get into a
political discussion with her.
So far the only things she has talked about are mov, four registers (ax, bx,
cx, dx), add, sub, int21h, .model, .data and a few other things that I think
are fairly generic. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I have heard she is strict (stronger sentiments have been expressed from
lesser people), I would describe her as knowledable. She rattles off assembly
like its her own language. She wrote the book we used in Intro to C
My next question is going to be very silly and naive but.
Does Linux run in protected mode or real mode? Strangely I was taught the
memory modes a long time ago in High School or Junior High School. But never
saw the need to remember it, the importance hasnt been stressed up until now.
