Re: Where does assembler or compiling program reside?
Thank you for your explanation.
Now I understand that different high-level language, or even assembly language, has different compiler or assembler. They come with related languages.
The C++, for instance, has VC++ or Borland, or some other compilers. The assembly language has MASM or TASM, or some other assemblers. They will be invoked only when a designed program is to run.
Is my understanding right?
My next course will be to study how CPU read the machine code interpreted by the compilers and assemblers. I am sure that will be wonderful when I understand that.
