[Assembly language] How do I define and use classes and objects in Assembly language?

In Assembly language, the concept of classes and objects is not directly supported as in high-level programming languages like C++ or Java. However, you can achieve similar functionality by using data structures and procedures. Here's a general approach to defining and using classes and objects in Assembly language:

  1. Define a data structure: Start by defining a data structure that represents your class/objects. This structure will contain the attributes or properties of the objects. You can use the STRUC or STRUCT directive to define the structure.

  2. Define procedures: Next, define procedures (subroutines or functions) that will operate on the objects. These procedures will implement the methods or functions of the class. Each procedure should take the object structure as a parameter.

  3. Create objects: To create objects, you need to allocate memory for the object structure. You can use the ALLOC or DW directives to allocate memory. Initialize the object's attributes as needed.

  4. Use objects: To use objects, pass the object structure as a parameter to the appropriate procedures. The procedures will then perform operations on the object's attributes and update them accordingly.

  5. Memory management: Remember to manage memory appropriately. Deallocate memory when objects are no longer needed using the FREE or DW directives.

Note that implementing classes and objects in Assembly language requires a good understanding of low-level programming concepts and memory management. It's a more manual process compared to high-level languages.
