When I was young...er than today, during my studies, I was playing with the x86 Assembly language on my
386DX40 computer; this was in the years 1993-1995. The beginning of Windows 3.1 that I didn't like. If someone had asked me whether graphical interfaces would be successful, I would have said no, of course not.
I remember that I wrote a resident program (TSR for Terminate and Stay Resident) which, once loaded into memory, monitored the keyboard and recorded the keys that had been pressed in a file on the hard disk. And yes, it was a password stealer. Just for fun and, above all, for the challenge it represented.
And now, in 2023, I was wondering whether it was still possible to run
.asm files on my computer. It was an excellent pretext for this article.
