I was formerly an only-asm coder (I hated other languages), but I must admit it
is not a viable point of view, especially if we need to reinvent the wheel when
making assembly, whereas higher level language can help us to work on the
essential parts. Besides, assembly code is the most difficult to maintain -
just after the machine language of course ;).
