ASM: mixing assembler and C++

Posted 02-05-2012 at 12:05 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 09-04-2013 at 10:19 PM by rainbowsally

This is for intel 32 bit assembler. For 64-bits the calling convention is a bit different. See previous entries (specifically asm 64 bits) if you need a leg-up to break the 64 bit barrier.

Features:
  • Asm functions that can call class functions (using an object pointer) through jump vectors written in C.
  • Usage of extern "C" declarations to un-mangle names we need to keep simple for asm coding.

[If you really want to get down, you can use the mangled names as...

ASM: Intercepting (and using) Errors (like segfaults) in asm (aka SEH)

Posted 02-03-2012 at 04:10 PM by rainbowsally

This is for i86 and x86_64 types but with a bit of poking around you can probably find a similar way to do this with other CPUs.

Note: This asm requires 'sigaction'. (See the test code. And bear in mind that this is not an attempt to create a full-blown system of signal handlers. Check the libc docs for 'sigaction' for ideas on how you can use something like this for a seed for a more extensive application.)

There used to be a lot of cool little programs for the...
