I used to have a booklet which espoused the superiority of machine language over assembly. The theory was that a 'real' programmer could control his code better if he had memorized the op codes rather than relying on a fancy assembler to do the translation. I kept that booklet around for a long time as a reminder of how silly ideas can become over time. High-level programming languages generally do not create code that is as good as that generated by the best programmers. They are much more available, though, since the best programmers tend to be rather busy. Mediocre programmers can generate mediocre code much more efficiently using them, though. :-) Larry M.
