Considerations for writing and using assembly code in Delphi project (Russian)

By Guido Gybels.

Freeware 03 Jun 2002

Description

"Many programmers today associate assembler with a difficult, low-level kind of programming. They consider it fast, but most of them also think it is incomprehensible and impossible to learn. In reality, things are not that bad. It is possible to learn how to write good assembly code without being a genius. On the other hand, don't think a few lessons in assembly will leave you producing faster code than the average Object Pascal equivalent. The reason is that when you write Object Pascal, you can rely on a very efficient and clever assembler programmer: the Delphi compiler. Overall, the code produced by it is very efficient and fast. Also, by following some guidelines spanning several specific coding topics, you can get even more speed out of Object Pascal and Delphi."
