I do, it was my very first computer. Still up and running, although the original HDD broke (but I got a replacement, the same Seagate ST-157A, iirc).

You may just want to Google for the System V ABI.

It's downloadable also. The site hosting it doesn't even validate information so you can give them jibberish info and download it. Takes about 10 seconds to input this jibberish information.

Thanks for that heads up!

"The Software Optimization Cookbook: High-performance Recipes for the Intel Architecture" authored by Richard Gerber and published by Intel Press. Excellent book with a very high level description of how P3/P4 processors execute code. It has plenty of examples and real-world references. It's fairly current, it includes a ton of SSE/FPU optimizations and it gives a ton of optimization algorithms for high-performance tweaking. I got it for like a dollar used on Amazon.

Assembly Language For Intel Based Computers 5th ed, by Kip R. Irvine. Awsome assembly textbook. Teaches architecturs, in-depth asm using masm for examples, win32 CLI programming, win32 GUI programming, interfacing with high level languages, 16-bit DOS programming, Disk Fundamentals (very helpful if you're making an os. this part describes disk storage systems, file systems -fat12,16,32,NTFS-, disk directory, reading/writing disk sectors,
etc), BIOS level programming, and FPU instructions. This book has it all :)

I have this book and I've red parts of it. It basically explains how various processors are designed. It discusses Intel processors including core 2 duo and PowerPCs.

This book talks about concepts like:

* pipelined execution
* out of order execution
* caching concepts
* multicore processors
* theory about processor design

If you're new to all these concepts then this book is great. If you want more details or programming details then you have to look somewhere else. This book discusses only architecture related stuff and various design decisions in microprocessors and their implications.

You can take a look at the table of contents and the sample chapter to have an idea on the style of the book. sample chapter
