                                    REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

                  Group Name: comp.lang.asm.x86
                          Status: unmoderated
              Distribution: world-wide
                        Summary: Discussions related to the direct programming of
                                            the Intel 8086, 186, 286, etc . . . processors and
                                            its clones.
                Proposed by: Michael J. Averbuch (mikeaver@firefly.prairienet.org)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) on the subject of
creating an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup, comp.lang.asm.x86


The proposed unmoderated newsgroup comp.lang.asm.x86 will be
open to discussions on all topics related to assembly language
and low-level programming on IBM machines with '86 processors.
Appropriate topics would include, but not be limited to,

                      Assembly language tips and tricks (code techniques)
                      MASM, TASM, and other commercial assemblers
                      Graphics, sound, and other hardware programming
                      Assembly language code
                      Assembly language related share/freeware
                      Linking assembly language with other languages
                      Etc . . .

Topics that are discouraged are:

                      Flames about "{Language X} is {better/worse} than ASM"
                      Flames like "{Assembler 1} is {better/worse} than {Assembler 2}"
                      High-level language code, except when used for
                              hardware programming

This is NOT a call for votes. A Call For Votes (CFV) will be
posted about one month from now and will be conducted by an
independent third party.

The format for this RFD is taken from the RFD for comp.lang.m
(which I downloaded from the RFD in news.announce.newgroups)
and I thank Mr. Smith in advance for not protesting the use of
his RFD format, which he borrowed from somebody else anyway.

I already wrote a miniature preliminary FAQ. Look for it in
the news.groups newsgroup.
