How can I interact with the Web using assembler? What is the minimum software required to gain access to the Web today and what are the code lines of it? I'm just starting to work with TCP/IP 32bitz an know I probably need to study more.
With the PC there are a number of "Assembler" compilers, but no direction as to how to interact directly with the Web. On the iSeries system, you can use MI, which is assembler for the iSeries system. Because most of the Web (at least here in the U.S.) is changing from a modem connection to DSL (ISDN by another name) and Cable, you may find your niche in working behind the scenes in TCP/IP. This would require extensive knowledge in the layers and how they operate.
