This book will enable you to learn machine language the easy way — No Computer jargon. A straight forward approach with many examples.

Compiled exclusively tor Amstrad users, AMSTRAD MACHINE LANGUAGE FOR THE ABSOLUTE BEGINNER offers complete instructions in Z80 machine language programming.

If you are frustrated by the limitations of BASIC and want to write faster, more powerful, space-saving programs or subroutines, then this book is tor you.

Even with no previous experience of Computer languages, the easy-to-understand no jargon‘ format of this book will enable you to discover the power of the Amstrad‘s own language.

Each Chapter includes specific examples of machine language appliCations which can be demonstrated and used on your own Amstrad. The features and capabilities of the Amstrad are all covered, so you can start programming straight away.

AMSTRAD MACHINE LANGUAGE FOR THE ABSOLUTE BEGINNER takes you, in logical steps, through a comprehensive course in machine language programming. This book gives you everything you needtowrite machine language programs on your Amstrad
