Chapter 2. Getting Started

This chapter is written to quickly get you started using Kick Assembler. The details of the assembler's functionalities will be presented later.

2.1. Running the Assembler

Kick Assembler run on any platform with Java8.0 or higher installed. Java can be downloaded for free on Javas website ( To assemble the file myCode.asm simply go to a command prompt and write:

java –jar kickass.jar myCode.asm

And that's it.

Having problems with Java? Some Windows users found that Java couldn't be reached from the command prompt after installation. If this is the case you have to insert it in your path environment variable. You can test it by writing:

java –version

Java will now display the Java version if it's correctly installed.
