About this book

Learn to program the Propeller in Spin and C and how to map the Propeller Assembler (PASM) language from other high-level languages you might know.
The overall task you will pursue in the book is to implement a Delta Compression algorithm: first in Spin, then in PASM, then in C. Along the way, you'll review test driven development,  a powerful technique for validating code, and conclude with a chapter on hardware manipulations. The book's main goal is to help you extend the capabilities of the Propeller processor by using the assembler language.
What You’ll Learn

  • Use a data compression/decompression application to introduce PASM to the reader
  • Integrate C and PASM code
  • Review hardware interactions (setting and reading pins)
Who This Book Is For

Those who are familiar with Spin programming for the Parallax Propeller but have an interest in learning Propeller C and Propeller Assembler (PASM) programming. Some knowledge of C or Python is also helpful. 

About the authors

Dr. Sridhar Anandakrishnan is a Professor of Glaciology and Geophysics at Pennsylvania State University where he studies the flow of glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland. Sridhar uses the Propeller chip in a seismic data acquisition device that we use "On The Ice" as they say!
