    More material like this?

    I stumbled across this the other day:

    http://www.phiral.net/papers.htm
    (I was looking for Linux assembly stuff)

    After reading most of it, I've decided it's some of the best material I've read on the subject (not THE best, but damn good). Are there any other text file archives (I guess that's the best description) on this sort of thing? I would google but I'm not entirely sure what to google for, beyond some key words on the above page.

    I figured a lot of you guys have this kind of thing bookmarked, or something.

    I'm going to eat some Tiramisu now.

    Oh, can we ignore the fact that some of that material is... slightly sensitive? Good.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I understand that you're just using it as a reference, not necessarily for cracking purposes. But I would warn you that most tutorials written by "crackers" are awful. Almost by definition, these are the people who couldn't get real jobs because they SUCK at it.

    Kind of like when I see code that uses bzero(). The only code I've ever seen which calls it is cracker code, or from people who tried to learn programming by reading cracker code. It always sucks.

    If I were you I'd get a physical book on the subject. Really, assembly programming in Linux is not very different than assembly programming on Windows (or any other OS). The only real Linux-specific part of it is making system calls.

    Most programmers on online forums don't have 'real' programming jobs.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    "Most" isn't "all."
