Assembly is the lowest practical way to program the computer. Learning assembly will give you a greater understanding of how the computer works, and give you more control over the computer. This is as close are you can get to with dealing with the zero's and one's.
The two main types of Assembly are MASM and NASM
MASM - Microsoft Assembler
NASM -Netwide Assembler
Other assembly languages include FASM, TASM, and HLA which is Higher Level Assembly
Even .Net has there own form of assembly, they call IL for Intermediate Language
I usually just code in either the MASM editor, or TextPad.
If you want to use a nice RAD environment that is Visual Basic then I suggest you try RadAsm.
For more information on RadAsm you can visit their homepage at:
If you are on a windows computer and lack any access to an assembly ide, chances are that the machines contains Debug.exe which is basic assembly compiler. You can run it from the cmd prompt just type debug.exe
