For assembly there's an unavoidable compromise between code maintainability and performance. You can write easy to read/maintain assembly, or you can write highly optimised code; but you can not do both. For C, the compromise doesn't quite disappear, but it's far less noticeable - you can write easy to read/maintain C that is reasonably well optimised. An ...
