    Also I just finished writing an assignment in Microprogram. The ultimate programming language would basically be a one keyword instruction that is already programmed into the processor.

    Hmm... then it's not really a programming language. Although the definition is blurred.

    It would also not be a super programming language. Rather limited the poor thing.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    We would essentially have robots to do all the intermediate work. That or Deus Ex Machina.

    There is only one super language that can do everything... assembly...

    I would agree, assembly. 10,000 lines of code for a 50 line C program (at least), but everything goes to assembly

    Or build the JC-1 computer. JC stands for Jesse Custer

    here's what a JC instruction would look like.

    viola, we're all batteries.

    Absolutely horrible exaggeration. Many assembly programmers can get damn near close to matching the size of C programs in terms of LOC. It's not that hard; compiler-implemented assembly however may somewhat induce this nebulous thought.

    True. It is. But I'm in the middle of a horribly ugly assembly program and I'm vengeful

    Mad_guy, I think it was an exaggeration for effect, not fact.
