Although the BASIC language provided on the Amstrad machines is of an exceptionally high standard, there are obvious advantages, both in speed and memory economy, to be gained by the addition of machine code subroutines.
This book is intended to provide a grounding in Amstrad machine code programming. Although particular emphasis is given to the more commonly used Z80 instructions, the full instruction set is presented in an appendix, specially designed for quick reference.
The text is supplemented by numerous practical examples including several full length listings. These are laid out in standard assembly format, but a BASIC program is provided for direct loading of machine code bytes to help those readers who have not yet obtained an assembler.
