Thank you to reply to my message. Ian, I am using Linux, Fedora 12.
I typed 'as' as you wrote:
root> as
Then I wrote the name of my input file:
root> asm1.s
Then i pressed <ENTER> and then <ctl-D> and nothing happned!
For the second time I pressed  <ctl-D> and now I have the following
error message:
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:1: Error: no such instruction: `asm1.s'

I think you meant writing some assembly instructions before <CTL-D>.
But when I type:
root> as  <ENTER>
root> mov  $0, %eax  <ENTER>
root> <CAPS LOCK> <CTL-D>
nothing happens!! but if i press <CTL-D> for two more times, it will
exit from as and returns back to my shell prompt!
So what happened? Did it assemble the line? Why this <CTL-D> is
useful, how it is used?

Thank you to read my message.
