Testing is this thing that breaks your code. Don't be mean. Don't break code. Don't test things.

comment Do compiler-writers actually need to 'understand' machine code?
@SteveJessop If you understand each opcode to a point that you can learn a machine how to chain that opcode together with other opcodes to express a higher level concept, you do understand machine language completely. You are then just too lazy to find the optimal solution for every problem out there ;-)

comment Do compiler-writers actually need to 'understand' machine code?
@Prog Do you need to understand a programming language fully to program in it? No, but you'll possibly write sub-optimal code, and you can't do certain things others might be capable of doing. Do you need to understand machine language completely if you write a compiler that translates to that. No, but your compiler will be suboptimal, and incapable of doing certain things.
