Subject Re: Win64 progress at almost 50%; the challenging Win64<->UNO bridge looms
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2018 20:30:55 GMT
I have many years of professional assembly language programming 
experience. I have learned several assembly languages, but not one for 
Win64. I also have a good general understanding of stack management and 
call/return from compiler and operating system work.

Would it be useful for me to start learning the appropriate assembly 
language and stack management? If so, I would like pointers to the 
assembler and ABI etc. conventions.
