Thought a lot about assembler,from the book but disappointed
I had bought the book from amazon for the topic assembler , and i dissapointed with the book it doesn't explains about how cross assembler is done and how generated code reads the text input of .asm and how maintains its symbol table , location counters there is lot of stuff in assembler. It doesn't explain how the translated binary code nothing but hack assembler in turn takes input .asm and converts the .hack and where it output the file . etc.. Really i expected a lot from the book and I hope i didn't wasted my money, If anyone know how to how to write an assembler for any architecture and in turn it compiles and text file to binary hack. Hope you guys help me out.

The Elements of Computing Systems is a textbook for a one semester introduction to computer architecture, or the online course at nand2tetris.org and offered on Coursera. The chapter on the Hack assembler is intended as a one-week project to write a bare-bones absolute assembler.
