Assembly language

An assembly language (or assembler language) is a low-level programming language for a computer, or other programmable device, in which there is a very strong (generally one-to-one) correspondence between the language and the architecture's machine code instructions.

BIOS interrupt call

BIOS interrupt calls are a facility that operating systems and application programs use to invoke the facilities of the Basic Input/Output System on IBM PC compatible computers.

Central processing unit

A central processing unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions.

A compiler is a computer program (or a set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language (the target language), with the latter often having a binary form known as object code.

In systems programming, an interrupt is a signal to the processor emitted by hardware or software indicating an event that needs immediate attention.

Interrupt vector table

An interrupt vector table, a concept common across various processor architectures, is a table of interrupt vectors that associates an interrupt handler with an interrupt request in a machine specific way.

The MS-DOS API is an API which originated with 86-DOS and is used in MS-DOS/PC DOS and other DOS-compatible operating systems.

Ralf Brown's Interrupt List

Ralf Brown's Interrupt List (RBIL) is a comprehensive list of interrupts, calls, hooks, interfaces, data structures, memory and port addresses, and processor opcodes for x86 machines from the very start of the PC era in 1981 up into the year 2000, most of it still applying to PCs.

Real mode

Real mode, also called real address mode, is an operating mode of all x86-compatible CPUs.

System call

In computing, a system call is how a program requests a service from an operating system's kernel.

Unix (all-caps UNIX for the trademark) is a family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that derive from the original AT&T Unix, developed in the 1970s at the Bell Labs research center by Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others.
