Compared to today's exotic processors, the 1802 might seem to be hopelessly outdated. It remains, however, one of the easiest devices to integrate into electronic products, and it is also straight forward and relatively easy to program (as the book, of course, explains in detail). Tom's book includes tutorials on binary numbers, logic operations, plus information about writing code in assembly language -- also called machine code or machine language, the language the processor itself understands. Also included is a full subroutine library, a complete 1802 instruction reference, and the code for an 1802 assembler that can translate between machine code and assembly language instructions.
