Needs updating and coverage of the assembler and linker/loader
November 20, 2018
Coverage is adequate for the compilers, but needs updating. The biggest disappointment is that there is virtually no coverage of the AS assembler and the linker/loader. While it might be true that mainstream GNU/Linux users are not using assembly language much, there are those of us out here that are using it, especially those of us working on embedded Linux projects. For example, the use of Raspberry Pi has exploded. The authors need to consider doing a long over-due update to this very valuable Linux programming reference book, and to include some detailed coverage of the assembler tool chain.
