TK your one of those people who will just not take no for an answer arent you. Have you even programmed before? Do you know anything about computers? Because from you posts it is not at all obvious! As i said before TK, if you intend to keep up this silly argument then go do some reading and show me some hard proof, though i wouldnt bother cause you just aint going to find any.
Both i and Compuboy have explained in cystal clear terms just what assembly coding is all about, yet you still continue with you stuipid idea that high level languages are going to be faster than ASM. Even though Compuboy spelt out the fact that ASM is simply a representation of the binary instructions you still cant see that they are the same thing.
Heres an example, my bootloader loads a bitmap from a floppy disk, prints it to the screen in mode 13h and does all the processer stuff needed to switch an intel processor into 32 bit mode, and how big is this file. Less than 1K! Now go do that in C (or any other high level language).
Also, you dont take into acount that to people who dont know a programming language even VB looks total nonsence, Assembly is actually vey understandable one you have a firm grasp of the basic consepts.
