8086-Emulated X86 Assembly Scroller

This project consisted of building an x86 assembly program in an 8086-emulated environment.  We used the FreeDOS operating system with a set memory of 16 megabytes.  We used Q and Qemu to emulate the architecture.


The user enters the executable name “marquee” followed by a string of characters that the program will scroll across the 80 column screen, vertically centered within a blue double-line border.  Execution stops when the user hits Escape.
