I think it involves calling the main function.

And so what really does it mean to "run" the program? That is, there must be a program that the OS runs to "run" executables-how does it work, differentiating from "opening" or "reading" or "writing" a file, what then does "running it" actually mean, to the OS, that is? And what is the name of that program on a windows machine? I would love to look it up...
Right now I am working on the parse-end of a compiler. I am dreading the next step, asm. Nonetheless, this is the most interesting program I've worked on yet! Anyone know the BEST book to read on ASM that is readable and interesting?
