comment How does learning assembly aid in programming?
My point is, it doesn't directly compile into x86 assembly language, if you're on an Intel or AMD-based computer. Internal byte code -> assembler is not 1:1 same. Do the test and compare them. (see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_assembly_language

comment How does learning assembly aid in programming?
I always thought higher-level languages compiled into object (machine code) or pseudo-code, and not into ASM.

comment How does learning assembly aid in programming?
@Jon, +1 for making that point!.. It all depends on what your role is!.. If I had spare time, it would be interesting for me, as a hobby, to tinker with ASM, but I don't have any plans in writing internals, device drivers or autonomous Mars rovers!.. There's more possibility for bugs, the lower the level of programming languages because humans must worry about many more complex things!

comment How does learning assembly aid in programming?
Since I specialize in developing business applications, I primarily rely on SQL-based app development tools which use a 4GL. They allow me to quickly prototype an app and customize it into a production system. Rarely do I need to write a callable cfunc. Time to deliver and time to modify are big factors in my world!

comment Fellow programmer used worst programming practices
It's called "obfuscation" and although it is being more frequently used these days, its not full-proof!..although it will delay someone from cracking the code, it can be cracked!..what I would like to see is a compiler that can encrypt the object code and only be executed with the correct key, so that even someone with a disk editor, disassembler or any other cracking tool will never be able to make heads or tails out of it!
