in thread Perl is the 'mixed drink' in the world of alcohol...

Careful before you underestimate the power of assembly. If I ever need to be baffled about what one can accomplish through assembly code, I go to Steve Gibson's site. Somehow, I've just never found a way to argue with a full-GUI, 52K application with no installer/uninstaller that can scan for "click-of-death." ;)

You see, you can do neat stuff with assembler. Now if someone could just make it run a little faster... *chuckle*

    I never meant to underestimate the power of assembly! I've done some stuff with it, but as a programmer it's hardly any fun to write in assembly!

      Oh in DOS-time I had fun programming in assembly. With DEBUG to boot! I wrote with overlapped Op-codes, with flags that weren't 0 or 1 but 0 and 0xD5F6 or some such...:-) In short, you couldn't change the program, but what it did, did it well. And it was short.
