Linux assemblers: A comparison of GAS and NASM, A side-by-side look at GNU Assembler (GAS) and Netwide Assembler (NASM)
NASM Vs GAS (Practical differences)
Can I use Intel syntax of x86 assembly with GCC?
Using “.intel_syntax noprefix” how can I get memory address of a label?
Which variable size to use (db, dw, dd) with x86 assembly?
What’s the difference between equ and db in NASM?
“no such instruction error” when assembling an array declaration
Difference between .equ and .word in ARM Assembly?
Why are there empty address spaces between data sections in memory (x86 / nasm)?
What does the dollar sign ($) mean in x86 assembly when calculating string lengths like “$ – label”? [duplicate]
mov si, name mov si, [name] mov si, word ptr [name] mov si, offset name
EQU defines a symbol to a given constant value: when EQU is used, the source line must contain a label. The action of EQU is to define the given label name to the value of its (only) operand. This definition is absolute, and cannot change later. So, for example,
message db 'hello, world' msglen equ $-message
defines msglen to be the constant 12. msglen may not then be redefined later. This is not a preprocessor definition either: the value of msglen is evaluated once, using the value of $ (see section 3.5 for an explanation of $) at the point of definition, rather than being evaluated wherever it is referenced and using the value of $ at the point of reference.
