Amazon5StarsRaspberry Pi Assembly Language RISC OS is a Hands-On-Guide to learning to program ARM assembly language on the Raspberry Pi using the RISC OS operating system. It is perfect for the novice with no prior knowledge of assembly language. It starts from first principles and leads you through new concepts using a modular approach with clear, lucid descriptions. Gradually progressing onto more complex topics you will become an accomplished and confident programmer by following the examples and applying them yourself.

The book shows how to use the inbuilt BBC BASIC Assembler to create and generate machine code and includes examples that demonstrate how to integrate the flexibility of BASIC into your assembler. Later chapters introduce the industry standard (and free) GCC Compiler and demonstrate how to create machine code.

Thoroughly enjoyable – Owen

FREE PDF – Interfacing Projects for the BBC Micro

My second book, published in tandem with BBC Micro Assembly Language (although with different publishers), is available for download as a PDF file from Gumroad.  Interfacing Projects for the BBC Micro was published by Addison Wesley and was the first book that showed how to construct projects to connect and control using a popular microcomputer.

At 134 pages it was a relatively thin tome but that hid the huge amount of work and effort that went into it. Some of the projects were quite exciting for the time it was written – using my friends drawing board as an X-Y Plotter was by far my favorite.

This is the second in a number of ‘Retro Computing’ books that I will be releasing. These will include a mixture of PDF files and also eBook versions of publications with associated program listings.

The Advanced Sidewayss RAM User Guide is available for download as a PDF file from Gumroad – free of charge!

At 230 pages it is a complete guide to using the Sideways RAM/ROM technology that is a unique part of the BBC Micro design. The secrets of Acorn’s ROM Filing System (RFS) are laid open to you and explained in full with numerous examples- there’s even a ROM formatter, developed by the author for use on commercial software, ready for you to type in and use.

This book is one of a number of free PDFs that form my  ‘Retro Computing’ series of books covering the BBC and Amiga computers.
