10.8 Assembly Statements

The E language incorporates an assembler so you can write Assembly mnemonics as E statements. You can even write complete Assembly programs and compile them using the E compiler. More powerfully, you can use E variables as part of the mnemonics, so you can really mix Assembly statements with normal E statements.

This is not really the place to discuss Assembly programming, so if you plan to use this feature of E you should get yourself a good book, preferably on Amiga Assembly. Remember that the Amiga uses the Motorola 68000 CPU, so you need to learn the Assembly language for that CPU. More powerful and newer Amigas use more advanced CPUs (such as the 68020) which have extra mnemonics. Programs written using just 68000 CPU mnemonics will work on all Amigas.

If you don't know 68000 Assembly language you ought to skip this section and just bear in mind that E statements you don't recognise are probably Assembly mnemonics.
