  Low-level programming: C, assembly, and program execution on Intel 64 architecture
Zhirkov I.,  Apress, New York, NY, 2017. 435 pp. Type: Book (978-1-484224-02-1)

Despite the ease of programming in high-level languages, there will always be things that are best programmed in low-level languages (such as speed, resource usage, and size). Assembler is certainly the lowest language, but assembler programs are ...
