NASM assembly language programming, Assembly Language

NASM assembly language program:

Consider a sequence of 19 strictly positive decimal digits, most likely
stored in an array. There are obviously duplicates, and the sequence is
unsorted. You may use the sequence length in your program.

Your job is to compute and print the _median_ of this sequence. Since the
sequence length is odd, the median occupies the central position when the
sequence is sorted.

Sorting the sequence might be challenging as your first assembly-language
program, but there is an easier way. All you need to master is looping,
array indexing, adding 1, and comparing.

Give yourself an auxiliary array ''count'' that records the number of times
each digit appears in the sequence.

A linear scan through the sequence is sufficient to compute ''count''.
A second linear scan through ''count'' is sufficient to compute the median.

This program is to be written in NASM.

Here is an outline of the NASM source text:

segment .data
seq dd 0, 1, 9, 1, 9, 1, 9, 3, 8, 3,
3, 8, 4, 7, 5, 7, 5, 6, 5, 4 ; array of length 20
count dd 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ; array of length 10

segment .text
