Been there, did that, still making money at it Laugh | :laugh: . I spent my early career in and out of various assembly languages, all microprocessor-based. Now that I think about it, I think learning assembly, then C, then C++, and finally C# has made me really appreciate each language as I learned them. Each language in turn provides a manner of expression that is more concise than its lower-level ancestor. If we are honest and not engaged in pointless optimization, we choose a language based upon the abstractions required to solve the problem at hand.

That said, I have a project now that was originally written in assembly language for a custom-built embedded processor. When it was translated to C the programmer was learning C at the same time. As a result, the C code looks very much like the original assembly source. Everything's global and everybody touches everything. Somehow the original guy discovered the setjmp()/longjmp() abomination, and that adds to the fun.
