Mastering Amiga Programming Secrets

  Mastering Amiga Programming Secrets

Mastering Amiga Programming Secrets shows the reader how to achieve all the difficult programming tricks which fascinate enthusiastic users of the Amiga. The Amiga is used by amateur programmers to create programs which are sometimes useful, sometimes for entertainment and showing-off to friends. Paul Overaa applies his renowned programming experience to a selection of routines in C and assembly language which programmers will find invaluable. The sexier areas of programming for graphics and sound/ music are also covered. The in-depth coverage of using the Amiga's special graphics chips will be high on the agenda for any would-be Amiga games writer. As always Paul Overaa doesn't leave examples lying around in isolation but he explains the concepts behind the Amiga's own software system and how programmers can correctly operate in conjunction with it. The programs which appear in the book are all on the enclosed disk.

The book is compatible with all the main assemblers on the market. A support disk is enclosed which contains the A68K assembler, all the listings in the book, additional utilities and examples. With the Amiga Assembler Insider Guide learning assembler on the Amiga has never been easier.
