Hey copperkid,

Were you looking for something specific on that site?

Maybe I could grab it for you and upload it?

Wow, that's why I love this site, people are so kind!

Anyway no thanks, I was just browsing around for random assembly programming material and peeking here and there, so I have no specific request.
..and I just found the "Coders Tutorial" forum, probably there I can find more stuff than I can afford to read in a few weeks time

Ehm, actually I'd have a request.
After documenting myself for a few hours seems the best books about assembly programming on the amiga are "Total Amiga Assembler" and "Mastering Amiga Assembler" by Paul Overaa.

I saw the topic popped up at regular times here on EAB but seems no one was ever able to produce a scan of those books... did this change recently?

I definitely want to buy the real books but I couldn't find them as well

Still had a deeper look through the ebooks I have left yet - but sorry - nothing of your request between them.


Cheers Josh

@copperkid

Compute's assembler book is available on the EAB file server.

I also have "Amiga Assembly Language Programming" by Jake Commander (but I don't think it is as approachable as Paul Overaa's writing style)

Unfortunately I don't have the books you are after either - seems they must be quite rare.

@Josh, thanks anyway!

Yep, they seem quite rare (but it's strange no one scanned them yet being referenced as the best ones in many programming posts).

@Calgor, I got the Compute's one already, could you please "zone" the other? (hope I'm using the correct language, I'm still new here )

@ copperkid - you should be able to get away without the Paul Overaa books, I'd recommend:

68000, 68010, 68020 Primer by Kelly-Bootle & Fowler
680x0 Programming By Example by Kelly-Bootle
Assembly Language and Systems Programming For The MC6800 Family by William Ford and William Topp (covers 68040, FPU and MMU that the earlier books don't...)

for learning 68000 assembly and

Amiga System Programmer's Guide by Dittrich, Gelfand & Schemmel

alongside the Hardware Reference Manual (easily available as .txt and .pdf) for learning the Amiga Hardware.

All these should be fairly easily obtainable from online bookshops.

Thanks for the advice, I'll take a look into those.
I was looking more for Amiga specific assembly books than generic 68k ones though, I'm hacking in assembly on quite a few platforms already, so writing (bad) code that works it's not a problem, optimizations can come later... now I just want my old school demo to get going!

And even if now it's secondary (imho) I don't want to overlook writing good assembly code, In fact just today I got from amazon US this one:
"Microcomputer Architecture and Programming: The 68000 Family", John F. Wakerly

You should have woken up and replied earlier PMC!

Mainly my problem now is that I'm on vacation in Japan and even if I find the hardcopy books I won't be able to get them here in a reasonable time, that's why I was looking for some digital version.
I know I know, I should have done this research earlier...


Edit: just bought the System Programmer's Guide for a ridiculous price on amazon US

There are a couple of small updates...

- Now there's a new category named "Other" where you will find misc manuals.

- Category eBooks are now fully loadable from the new server (without ). More eBooks coming tonight.

- All new manuals are linked to new server too.

- And of course some new manuals.

Have fun furthermore...


Cheers Josh

EDIT: Category Applications also linked to new server
