MMURTL-V1.0 - is a book that is very popular among computer programmers interested in the internal workings of a computer operating system. Cover from previous printing (SAMS/MacMillan)Shown to the left as originally printed, it was previously titled "Developing Your own 32 Bit Operating System" (ISBN 0-672-30655-7) and was published by SAMS/MacMillan. We have renamed the book MMURTL-V1.0 (ISBN 1-58853-000-0) and the printed version is a "Perfect Bind" soft cover (see the additional picture at very bottom of page). It was renamed because this is the name that the author had originally intended. MMURTL is a bad acronym for Message based MUltitasking Real Time kerneL (to quote the author: "Hey.. all the good acronyms were taken!").
This is literally a "how to book" on writing a computer operating system, and includes the assembler and C language code to build one. In fact, it contains the complete operating system source code, an assembler and C compiler, along with their source code, on the accompanying CD! This is the exact text of the original book except where the author has made very minor corrections where the original text was incorrect (editing mistakes, typos, etc.).
