Assembly board

This is a discussion on Assembly board within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I think having an assembly board would be cool in this forum....

    Until there's enough volume, I suspect that the general discussion forum would be perfectly fine for this subject - it makes it a bit harder to find the posts, but adding another forum also makes for "more work" in some ways (having too many forums just makes people post in the wrong place anyways!).

    I think the Tech Board would be a better catch all for programming related topics that do not fall into an existing forum's scope.

    Neither of them is a perfect place. Though, Tech Board is better.

    Hopefully anyone using ASM can figure out which board to post on, because if they can't they don't have a hope. Adding a board for assembly certainly won't cause more people to post ASM questions on other boards, but it'll give a place for the people who can figure out where do post.

    Anyone in need of such a volume of assembly questions that it would require its own board should be able to use Google to discover a dedicated assembly forum, or assembly sections of generic tech forums. Or they could just go to Usenet, comp.lang.asm and its subgroups, and alt.lang.asm.

    This is still a board about C and C++ primarily.

    This is a C/C++ board not an assembly language board. There are other boards that are more prepared to deal with assembly questions.

    And to answer future polls:

    Any new board here = a bad idea.

    It's in the name - CProgramming.com. We dont need to add a board to cater for every need.

    Then why do we have an AI board?

    AI can and has been implemented in C/C++, and theoretical stuff is welcome to be discussed there also, because it doesn't get away from the point of the board, which is a learning place for C/C++

    Assembly is not a programming language .

    It would be good if there would be much assembly-related topics in Tech Board. But there aren't, so let's just agree to use [ASM] in front of the topic name.

    It's a near direct translation between machine language and human readable form. Plus, consider the fact that there is no standard "assembly language," considering how many different assemblers use different forms (AT&T vs. Intel), different directives, etc.

    lol mk.

    (as of posting)
    29% in favor
    71% against

    if it were more like 51% then you would have a chance at arguing further, looks like it's a dead end.

    CT's win!
