I have the old Jeff Duntemann book "Assembly Language Step-by-Step
". It's old (1992) but the text itself suits my needs. He goes into old assembly compilers like TASM and MASM which may have been included in Windows and DOS in the x386 and x486 days. But those days are long gone and I think they have been discontinued as a freebie in modern OS and chip sets. So what's an assembly programmer wanna-be to do?
So here's the question:
What is the best 80x86 family compiler available? Free is better than pricey. Having an IDE is better than not having one.
