MASM 11, when we talk about assembly language the most famous MASM compiler comes to our minds. It is one of the most popular compilers of the assembly language and good for learning MASM. Teachers use MASM to teach the assembly language into their universities. It is a free development tool which helps the student to learn assembly language and execute all kind of code on this compiler. MASM is too old so it is not for 64-bit architecture. MASM is used to work on 16-bit and the 32-bit architecture environment.
Basically, assembly language is too old and it is the basis of C, C++, Java, PHP, Python you all familiar with these names they all are developed with the help of assembly language.In Assembly language, we communicate directly to the machine. It is also known as machine language which is fast and more powerful than others. MASM is the best compiler for it. NASM is also similar to the MASM compiler which is also used to execute machine learning code.
MASM is standing for Microsoft Macro Assembler. It is an x86 assembler that uses the Intel syntax for MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows. Beginning with MASM 8.0 there are two versions of the assembler – one for 16-bit and 32-bit assembly sources, and another (ML64) for 64-bit sources only.
