Sample text

A null-terminated string is a string of characters followed by a single byte containing zero. The C and C++ languages use null-terminated strings, and many Windows operating system functions require strings to be in this format. 20 Chapter 1 • Basic Concepts Using the ASCII Table A table on the inside back cover of this book lists ASCII codes used when running in Windows Console mode. To find the hexadecimal ASCII code of a character, look along the top row of the table and find the column containing the character you want to translate.

Each character is encoded in 16 bits. • UTF-32 is used in environments where space is no concern and fixed-width characters are required. Each character is encoded in 32 bits. ASCII Strings A sequence of one or more characters is called a string. More specifically, an ASCII string is stored in memory as a succession of bytes containing ASCII codes. For example, the numeric codes for the string “ABC123” are 41h, 42h, 43h, 31h, 32h, and 33h. A null-terminated string is a string of characters followed by a single byte containing zero.

You will create 32-bit and 64-bit programs for the most part, and 16-bit programs if you focus on the last four chapters. You will learn the following concepts from this book: basic computer architecture applied to x86 (and Intel 64) processors; elementary boolean logic; how x86 processors manage memory; how high-level language compilers translate statements from their language into assembly language and native machine code; how high-level languages implement arithmetic expressions, loops, and logical structures at the machine level; and the data representation of signed and unsigned integers, real numbers, and character data.
