    I was just wondering if direct Assembly language code can be written to get low-level access to certain hardware aspects of an operating system, and be run with normal higher level code, like C# or Java.

    But my main question is how exactly? Assembly code must be assembled using an assembler program, right? So how can it be assembled independently and run from a higher-level language at the same time to aid in code from, say, Java?

    Is it possible for Java to run and have Assembly written code execute to aid in my software as part of the absolute program?

    I'm a bit confused here, so any pointers would help.

    That ended my interest quickly.

    I have a 64-bit processor. :(
