Assembly Programming

  1. Oct 23, 2005 #1
    In assembly language (on at least an Intel 586 arch) how would I copy the string contents of one buffer to another without using any string functions for copying? I want to copy the contents from buffer1 to buffer2. I'm just beginning to learn how to code in assembly language, so I'm completely lost!

    Are you doing real or protected mode assembly?

    I was wondering, is it the real mode and protected mode difference that makes the current DOS in windows XP seem different to the DOS in windows 95? I know that real mode is limited to 1mb and protected is something like 4gb.
