<a href="http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/AsmTools/RollYourOwn/index.html">This seems like a nice resource.</a>

I hope it helps out :)

thanks, I saw that site before. But i really would want to try make a really basic crappy compiler for the good reasons here:


* Writing an assembler will give a programmer a good appreciation of the instruction encoding
* Writing an assembler will let the programmer insert the features they want into the assembler
* Writing an assembler allows the author to design a syntax for the assembly language that they prefer
* Writing an assembler is a good medium-sized project that many beginning to intermediate programmers can handle, allowing them to sharpen their programming skills on a practical project.


is there anywhere i could learn something like this? thanks
