The following Tech-Recipes tutorial contains a general template for designing an Assembly code program.
-After title, commonly listed is the name of the current file (possibly including the path).
-Placed between the | | are comments describing the program.
-Model type SMALL describes code which only points within its own scope or uses extern with path names.
-Under .DATA, goes your pre-defined terms, such as global variables and strings to be output.
-Under .CODE, goes the actual code of your program.
–.486 describes the type of program. If you wish to include ONLY 8086 type, you may also choose .386.
-The include here allows for read and write of IO properties from the keyboard (standard IO).
–main is only a standard name. It can be any name. .STARTUP is a label to denote the beginning of the program code.
–done: is a label showing a method beginning. Assembly works top down, ignoring labels, but it is a relative term to be used in jmp statements.
–.EXIT exits the program.
–end PROC denotes the end of a process or program.
